Brandon Marshall Benched For Broncos Vs. Chiefs Game Sunday Afternoon
Brandon Marshall has been benched for the Broncos vs. Chiefs game. That Brandon Marshall has been benched may come as shocking news to fans hoping for a Denver win on Sunday, and this could really cost them if Denver can’t find another source of offense against Kansas City. Brandon Marshall is the best wide receiver that the Denver Broncos have, and losing him from the line-up means that they are going to be missing their biggest weapon. It’s not good news for a team that has to win on Sunday just for a chance to make it into the 2010 NFL Playoffs, and could cost Marshall a lot of fans who were counting on him this week.You can get to know more about the match and game via bein sports wiki that may be of interest to you.
The reason that Brandon Marshall has been benched seems to stem from Marshall showing up late to a scheduled therapy session with the Denver medical staff. He had injured his hamstring and needed treatment on it, but the team started to believe that he was exaggerating the situation, and for some reason Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels took things public in the situation. This seems like two sides that have drawn a line in the sand, one where the coach wants his player on the field, and the other a player feeling that he might be too hurt to risk further injury on Sunday.
Either way, whether Brandon Marshall is hurt and wouldn’t get to play, or whether McDaniels decided to put his foot down and keep Marshall on the bench, the Denver Broncos are going to be hurting on Sunday. Denver is a team that relies on their defense and by making plays in close games. They are now on a three game losing streak, and have fallen to 8-7 on the season, meaning that their game against the Kansas City Chiefs becomes a must-win situation. So far in 2009 Brandon Marshall had 101 catches in 15 games to go along with 1,120 yards and 10 touchdowns. Marshall also had a record-breaking game of 21 catches for 200 yards and two TD’s against Indianapolis back in week 14.
To be completely clear, the Kansas City Chiefs are not a very good football team, and have only won three games during the 2009 season. They have been out-scored 400 to 250 in their first 15 games, and still come into Sunday’s game as the heavy underdog against the Denver Broncos. Denver won the first game between the two teams back in week 13 by a score of 44 to 13, so they proved they can beat the Chiefs in multiple ways. It was also the most points that the Broncos scored in a game this season, and the Broncos will need to put forward that type of effort again to put themselves in position to possibly get into the 2010 AFC Playoffs.
