Kansas City Chiefs Vs. Denver Broncos: Kyle Orton, Brandon Lloyd Major Strengths

The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for game No. 12 this season. The Chiefs, 7-4, are looking to solidify their hold on the division lead. The Broncos enter the game with some momentum because they embarrassed KC the last time these two teams played.

I talked with Mile High Report this week and asked what Denver's biggest strength is at this point in the season.

The Broncos' biggest strength to me is the passing the ball. If there's one thing Josh McDaniels does better than any coach in the NFL, it's orchestrate a potent passing attack. Kyle Orton leads the NFL in this category, and the Broncos are also at the top of the league in passing plays of 20 or more yards.

The wide receiver group they have put together of Brandon Lloyd, Eddie Royal, and Jabar Gaffney leads the NFL in receptions as a trio. The Broncos also have a very skilled receiving back in Knowshon Moreno, who is extremely effective in that facet of the game.
 
You think KC knows this? The Broncos put on a clinic against KC in Denver this year.
