It’s been just over a year between Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs and the last time the Chiefs came to Denver to play the Broncos.

“Ben gets in the zone, it’s contagious.”
Coach Mike Tomlin points out “it’s a new year” with the Colts, who have the Lucas Oil Stadium advantage and plenty of defensive playmakers.
