DENVER: This entire offense will obviously be revamped going from Tim Tebow to Peyton Manning. Before they scrapped the entire playbook to run Tebow's zone-spread stuff, they were reinstalling a more traditional zone-blocking scheme under o-line coach Dave Magazu (they had moved to more of a man scheme under Josh McDaniels' regime). Willis McGahee will have an adjustment to make again; he benefitted from the threat of Tebow last year, but was mediocre in traditional sets and put the ball on the ground far too much. Rookie Ronnie Hillman could push him on early downs and also see a good portion of the reps on third down. This offense is basically being handed over to Peyton Manning. Manning's offense is all about feel; it's a lot of option routes and adjustments at the line of scrimmage. Demaryius Thomas is his most gifted receiver, but he'll have a major adjustment to make after playing in a run-heavy, triple-option offense in college, then Tebow's zone-read in his first significant NFL action. Eric Decker, who has experience in pro style offenses, should be able to pick this up more quickly. The Broncos figure to use two tight ends often, with Joel Dreessen blocking while Jacob Tamme plays more H-back and occasional slot as a receiver. The Broncos' first option will be to throw it in the red zone. During his time with the Colts, Manning would go to the line with a passing play and audible to a run only if needed. John Fox certainly made his mark felt on the defense in his first year as Denver's head coach. The Broncos D will benefit from Peyton Manning leading longer drives on offense in 2012. The healthy return of Elvis Dumervil to partner with Von Miller forms a potent pass-rushing LB tandem. After missing 2010 with a torn pectoral muscle, Dumervil took a while to adjust to Denver's new 4-3 scheme. He had all 9.5 of his sacks in November/December, showing he's very capable of returning to his 2009 form. Miller isn't consistent against the run, but he is a 15-sack threat. He struggled late last year, with just two total tackles and zero sacks over the final three weeks, but that can likely be chalked up to him hitting the rookie wall.
KANSAS CITY: Even though new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. are more versed in power blocking, they apparently lured RT Eric Winston from Houston by promising more of a zone scheme. It fits with their personnel and shouldn't be a major transition. Jamaal Charles is the starter as soon as he proves he's healthy, and the Chiefs will run a lot of single-back, two-tight end stuff. Peyton Hillis should take at least a third of the reps at tailback and could be closer to a 50/50 split if Charles is slow to recover from his torn ACL. Hillis will see some time at fullback. There will, however, be certain game plans where Dexter McCluster plays more snaps than Hillis. One of Hillis' big roles will be in the red zone, where he figures to get carries near the goal line. Under Daboll, things should be opened up a little more for Matt Cassel this year. K.C. will likely spread things out, whether it be with three receivers or two tight ends, and go with more quick throws. Dwayne Bowe remains the No. 1 target while Steve Breaston is more of a catch-and-run guy who could thrive in this offense. He'll slide to the slot with Jonathan Baldwin playing outside when they go three-wide. Tony Moeaki will likely see his role scaled back slightly with the use of more three-wide sets. Kevin Boss will be used sparingly as a pass catcher, and the backs will be used frequently as check-down options. The Chiefs' 2011 defense was unspectacular, experiencing a drop in production across the board except for six more interceptions than in 2010. Kansas City does have some upside with a talented and blossoming defensive line and pass-rushing LB Tamba Hali (12 sacks in 2011). LB Derrick Johnson is a solid run-stopper on the inside who didn't get much of a shot before the arrival of Romeo Crennel, but he's been excellent in two years since. He was one of four NFL linebackers to reach triple digits in solo tackles in 2011. The most promising development in regards to this defense for 2012 is the fact that young star strong safety Eric Berry's knee should be 100 percent after he missed essentially all of 2011 once he tore his ACL in the season opener. He's excellent in pass coverage and able to contribute in run support.

*Broncos-Chiefs Preview* ========================


The Denver Broncos are comfortably atop the AFC West, but now they'll have to replace a key offensive contributor.

A dominant defense led by Von Miller should help soothe any concerns.

With Willis McGahee out, Miller and the defense could be poised for yet another dominant performance Sunday against the lowly Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver (7-3) opened a three-game lead in the West with a 30-23 victory over San Diego last Sunday, sweeping the season series.

The Broncos are on the cusp of matching their win total from last season thanks to a five-game winning streak, but they'll have to go forward without McGahee. The team leader with 731 rushing yards, McGahee was placed on injured reserve after tearing the medial collateral ligament in his right knee when he was tackled low against the Chargers.

McGahee will be replaced by rookie Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball and former first-round pick Knowshon Moreno, who have combined for 297 yards and two TDs on 82 carries this season.

'"We're certainly going to miss Willis," quarterback Peyton Manning said. "To say we're not going to miss Willis would be not telling the truth because he's that good of a player. ... So, Knowshon and Ronnie and Lance have to step up. Everybody else has to step their game up, too, when you're missing one of your top players."

Manning doesn't have to worry about his defense, which ranks among the NFL's best allowing 312.8 yards per game, including 93.8 on the ground.

Denver's defense also leads the league with 35 sacks, with Miller recording seven of his 13 in the last three games. He had three against San Diego and is second in the league in that category.

"That boy works his butt off and plays with a lot of confidence, and I see him doing it for a long time," cornerback Champ Bailey said.

Miller's 24 1/2 sacks are the most by a Bronco in his first two seasons since the stat became official in 1982.

He figures to be in the Chiefs' backfield fairly often since they've allowed 10 sacks in four games after Brady Quinn was taken down three times and Matt Cassel once in last weekend's 28-6 home loss to Cincinnati.

Kansas City (1-9) is averaging 12.0 points during a seven-game losing streak, mustering just 166.0 passing yards over the last five contests.

"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."

The Chiefs, losers of all five home games, were far from perfect last weekend, converting only one third down and totaling just 284 yards of offense. That's partly why Crennel is going back to Quinn.

"I like his leadership qualities and he's had experience with a couple of different teams and he's seen a couple of different things," Crennel said of his former first-round pick, who has yet to break through as an NFL starter. "I think that will bode well for him."

Crennel may feel more comfortable with Quinn over Cassel since he spent the past two seasons as a backup with Denver, never appearing in an official game.

"I know I really enjoyed the teammates I had there. I tried to get better every day, and I think I got better," Quinn said. "I can't really speak about what did or didn't happen."

He's completed 24 of 42 passes for 181 yards with three interceptions in two starts this year.

Unlike the Chiefs, there's no doubt who will be under center for Denver.

Manning is looking for an improved effort after struggling by his standards last week. He completed 25 of 42 for 270 yards with three touchdowns and one interception, while getting sacked three times.

Protecting Manning will be even more important with McGahee out, and it's unclear if Hillman can contribute due to his size.

The rookie, noted for his speed, has 188 yards and a touchdown on 49 carries.

"You've got to protect Peyton a lot longer. I've been in there a lot, but if I do get an extended role, then it's a little more pressure, being able to do everything right every play that I'm there."

Manning threw five TDs in his last visit to Kansas City, leading Indianapolis to a 45-35 win on Oct. 31, 2004.
