This offense isn't built to come back from down 2+ possessions.
To be fair, I'm at the very least hesitant with the offense, but you have to admit that they haven't had the chance to prove whether or not they can score when they have to. In 4th quarter situations they HAVE moved the ball well. Smith in this latest game threw with much more authority. If he plays that way going forward maybe there is scope to put up more if necessary.
If they're down 17-7 to the Broncos at half-time after they got, say, a special teams TD or a real short field? KC would be right in that game because the D is bossing it. Down 27-14 with no ST/garbage TDs? Yeah... that's probably game over, because even if the offense puts up a couple more teeds, the defense isn't gonna have enough juice to stop Manning.
