(NEW YORK) — The Denver Broncos (7-3) will head to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to take on the Kansas City Chiefs (1-9).
The Broncos are looking to pad their AFC West lead and the Chiefs are looking to be competitive down the stretch.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was asked about playing in a tough environment on the road.
“It’s always been loud the times I’ve played there,” said Manning. “I’ve always thought their fans were smart fans, they get loud at the right times.”
Despite their 1-9 record, Manning is expecting the Chiefs defense to come out firing.
“They can get a lot of pressure on the quarterback,” said Manning. “They’re well coached, well disciplined.”
Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn will get the start on Sunday and is looking forward to seeing his former team.
“I want to win,” said Quinn. “People feel like Denver needs that win more than us, but there is no doubt about it. Guys in that locker room need that win.”
“We know we have to fight. We have to do everything in our power to be the best we can be, to be perfect,” coach Romeo Crennel said. “That’s what I told them, we have to be perfect because that’s the only way we have a chance.”
