The Kansas Chiefs head into Sunday's match up with the Denver Broncos looking to improve on a defensive effort against the Cincinnati Bengals last week that resulted in the Bengals scoring 28 points. That came after the Chiefs held the Pittsburgh Steelers to just 16 points in an overtime loss.
Defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs told reporters early in the week that the defensive breakdowns against the Bengals came mostly due to one mistake by a player on each of Cincinnati's four scoring drives.
"We had individuals leave their man and we had everybody covered if we just stay with our man we allow the rest to take its toll, we would've been alright," Gibbs said. "But every scoring drive we had one critical mistake in that situation, they all occurred on third down. Really at the end of the day that was big."
