For a guy whose season in Denver was lost to a piece of metal in his foot that bent the wrong way, it seemed fitting. And while somewhat camouflaged during a point fourth quarter Sunday and a last-second victory led by quarterback Drew Lock , perhaps none of the Broncos' euphoria following a win over the Los Angeles Chargers happens without Callahan. Callahan made the best play of his two-season tenure in Denver with just under two minutes remaining in the third quarter, intercepting Chargers rookie quarterback Justin Herbert. Broncos coach Vic Fangio, who also coached Callahan with the Chicago Bears and has seen every play of Callahan's game career, took it a step further. Callahan was one of the first players Fangio wanted to acquire just after Fangio was hired to coach the Broncos in January No small thing given the Broncos were also, at the time, having to consider what to do with the contract of longtime cornerback, four-time Pro Bowl selection and No Fly Zone founder Chris Harris Jr. Then Callahan took an awkward step during a stadium scrimmage in July and another player stepped on his foot. The incident bent a screw that had been inserted to repair a fracture in December

Things seem to have righted themselves in Chiefs Kingdom this past weekend as the Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills , a team many thought would be and still consider a contender. The Raiders are coming off their bye week this week with all kinds of hype. They most recently beat the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs and are the new media darling. However, that may all come to an end as they host another media darling in Week 7: Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While I think Brady is overhyped, there is no doubt that their offense is better than what he had in New England—better weapons means he can do more. What is most impressive about the Bucs is their defense. Ranked number one in the league, this is a defense that will get after quarterbacks, which I believe will spell disaster for Derek Carr. The Raiders did not sit idle during the bye week, though. They added former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving to their practice squad. Irving was recently reinstated and intended to retire, but came back and signed with the Raiders.
I do love a good Kansas City Chiefs victory that causes me no stress or anxiety. That was our Sunday, Chiefs Kingdom! Regardless, here we are, still atop the AFC West and looking mighty fine.
