Broncos back to ‘drawing board’ trying to slow Kelce

The Denver Broncos’ defense held Alex Smith to his worst game of a possible MVP season and bottled up running Kareem Hunt better than any team has yet this season.

Denver, however, couldn’t solve the one problem that’s haunted them the past two years: Travis Kelce.

The tight end led the Chiefs with 133 receiving yards and a touchdown. Kelce earned a whopping 65 percent of Smith’s 202 passing yards Monday night, and no other receiver hit the 40-yard mark. Blasting the Broncos isn’t new for Kelce. In two games last season he earned an eight-catch 101-yard day and an 11-catch, 160-yard, one-TD night.

“One thing about playing football is you always have to go back to the drawing board to see what you could do,” linebacker Shane Ray said, via the Denver Post.

Among his seven catches, Kelce caught two long targets, including a 29-yard touchdown in which he fooled the safety off the line of scrimmage to get wide open. Even though the Broncos knew they had to key on the tight end, Kelce was still able to skip free too often.
