Denver columnist gets last laugh on Chiefs

Give Denver Post sports columnist Mark Kiszla props. He predicted that the Denver Broncos

would expose the Chiefs as “frauds.”

Mission accomplished (at least a little bit): Playing at home, the Broncos beat the previously undefeated Chiefs on Sunday night, 27-17.

Kiszla celebrated appropriately,

with another column

aimed at the heart of KC’s fans: “It’s true, Kansas City Chiefs really are NFL frauds.”

Both teams are now 9-1.

As proud Chiefs fans will point out, it wasn’t a runaway victory for Denver. Indeed, the Chiefs were still within 10 points under four minutes to play.

But a loss is a loss, and while the Chiefs will talk about moral victories, this game will show up in the loss column.

Yes, Kiszla is in the business of creating some controversy, putting his opinion out there and, in this case, angering a huge fan base back in Kansas City.

So it’s likely that in two more weeks, when the Broncos and Chiefs meet at Arrowhead Stadium, Kiszla will run out the “frauds” comment once again.

Kiszla wrote in his initial column, “This game has 31-13 written all over it. Broncos win. Chiefs go in a tailspin.”

Hey, he did get the score wrong.

But now it’s up to the Chiefs to make sure they avoid that dreaded tailspin.

Then maybe Kansas City can get the last,

last laugh on Mark Kiszla.
