DENVER -- I've arrived in the Mile High city and will be making my way over to Invesco in about 30 minutes. The Beast will be focused on Cowboys-Broncos beginning at 4:15 p.m. ET, but right now I'm watching Giants-Chiefs in my hotel room. The Chiefs did exactly what a bad team can't afford to do at the start of the game: They fumbled the opening kickoff.

Bryan Kehl, who is becoming a special-teams star, pounced on the fumble and the Giants quickly scored on a touchdown pass to Steve Smith. On their first possession, the Giants gave Eli Manning all day to throw the ball. On a third-and-5, Manning had at least five seconds to roam around the pocket before finding Smith for a first down. Right now, the Giants receivers do as good a job as any group in the league during the scramble drill. And if Smith's not a No. 1 receiver, he sure acts like he is.

I'm afraid this one will be over quickly. In other news, the Bucs already have a 7-0 lead over the Skins at FedEx. Josh Johnson fired a touchdown pass to Antonio Bryant. Does Jim Zorn get fired if Washington loses this game? Are we going to do this every week?
