Denver has lost four of its last five in Kansas City. The Chiefs are unbeaten in Arrowhead this year. Naturally I'm picking the Broncos. It's going to take Rich Gannon awhile to get his fundamentals back, to figure out where his receivers are and why. Plus, the offensive line is banged up. Here's another offbeat statistic: The Broncos have nine defensive and special teams touchdowns this season, as many as they had in the previous six years combined. I can see them adding to the total on Sunday.
Finally, here's my upset special: The Bears over the Jets, for no other reason than that they showed great courage giving the Vikings a run for it after being down 21-10. In three visits to Soldier Field, the Jets have won once, back in 1974. I covered that game. What do I remember? It turned on three straight personal fouls against Chicago, and afterward, Bears coach Abe Gibron was apoplectic as he devoured the biggest knockwurst sandwich I've ever seen. Sweet memories.
