Watching NFL Network this morning, three of four analysts picked the Chiefs to beat the Broncos. The outsider? Mr. Warren Sapp.
Marshall Faulk: "I'm going with Kansas City. They run the ball the best in the league and Denver is 31st in stopping the run in the league. I'm taking Kansas City."
Steve Mariucci: "I take Kansas City. I agree, It will be a track meet. Not only that, they take care of the football. Only six turnovers. Kansas City is a good football team."
Warren Sapp: "Kansas City's a good football team but I'm going the other way on this one. They played 10 quarters in the last two weeks -- five overtime against the Buffalo and then overtime against Oakland -- the thin air of Mile High. I'm taking Denver."
Michael Irvin: "I'm staying with Kansas City right here because they just don't make mistakes and the team that doesn't make mistakes always wins."
Good running game + mistake-free football = Chiefs victory.
