With the addition of quarterback Peyton Manning to the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers has made it clear that they’re not worried about facing off against Manning twice a year in the AFC West.
“We’ve got the mindset we’re going to win the AFC West,” Flowers said. “Peyton Manning, he’s a quarterback that everyone wants to have. He’s not going to turn the ball over, he’s not going to make critical mistakes.
“But I’m going out there saying if my man can’t get open, he won’t have no one to throw the ball to. So as long as I do my part, we’re not too worried about Peyton Manning.”
