Peyton's Take: Week 2
Broncos keeping focus on Chiefs
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --It would be easy to understand if the Broncos were looking past Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs and ahead to Week 3's battle with the Seahawks.
Sure, beating Seattle in the preseason was a nice result, but a victory at CenturyLink Field against last year's Super Bowl champions would be infinitely more meaningful in avenging the Broncos' loss in February.
At the same time, Kansas City heads into Sunday's game off of a 26-10 loss to the Titans -- tied for the worst margin of defeat since Andy Reid took over as head coach -- in which Alex Smith threw three interceptions and Derrick Johnson and Mike DeVito went down with season-ending Achilles injuries.

With Montee Ball, Broncos seeking power
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- It was evident Sunday that the Broncos' talk about building a more effective ground game wasn't just offseason lip service: it will be a point of emphasis in games.
"The run game is a focus for us," said tight end Julius Thomas. "We have to run the ball efficiently, but if you're running the ball well on third-and-short, it's going to extend drives so we'll take that. But we'll keep working."

Julius Thomas had a difficult time making distinctions between his three touchdown catches when trying to recall them in the locker room after the game. With all three coming in the first half, it's no surprise that he had trouble doing so.
The fourth year tight end had a terrific night, notching 104 total receiving yards on seven catches for an average of almost 15 yards, with a long of 35 yards.
