Week 8: Brandon Perna reviews loss to the Chiefs

The Denver Broncos turned the ball over five times against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Monday Night Football on ESPN in a game that most likely cost Trevor Siemian his starting job as the quarterback.

KC currently sits at the top of the AFC West with a commanding 6-2 record and the Broncos fall to 3-4 joining the lowly Los Angeles homeless Chargers at 3-5 and the Oakland Raiders, who were pummeled by the Buffalo Bills falling to 3-5 as well.

The problem continues to be mistakes for the Denver Broncos. A different QB won’t solve all those problems but it could help.

In addition to three picks from Siemian, Bennie Fowler dropped a touchdown pass that hit him in the chest, Jamaal Charles had the ball stripped from him which was returned for a TD by Marcus Peters, and punt returner Isaiah McKenzie muffed a punt, handing the ball over to the Chiefs.

Tyreek Hill was not only a non-factor he threw a pick too, The Chiefs MVP was kicker Harrison Butker who made all five of his field goals.

The Denver defense played well again limiting Kareem Hunt to 46 rushing yards and only allowing Alex Smith and the offense to score one touchdown to a wide open Travis Kelce.

Domata Peko, Adam Gotsis, and Derek Wolfe have been nasty up front.

Justin Houston was an issue for Trevor Siemian, but not enough to cause him to throw three interceptions, which he did.

Shane Ray looked good in his return after missing the entire season so far with a thumb injury, he Barrett and Von Miller played well together.
