Kansas City vs Denver: Who Do You Cheer For?

This Sunday two titans of the NFL will face off in an epic battle that will give the winner a spot in the driver’s seat in the AFC west. So much is at stake here for both teams, but Kansas City has an undefeated season on the line, while Denver wants to take that top spot from the Chiefs. This is likely to be the most watched game Sunday, and it begs the question, who do you cheer for? Not a Chiefs or Broncos fan? That’s okay, because I’ve put together a list to help you decide which team will get your support. Allow me to be your Fan Sherpa as we climb the harrowing heights of NFL fandom.

Which team has the best food?


Yes, I know that basing your dedication for a team solely on the 5 star rating of their fine cuisine  isn’t really scientific, but this is football, so science has no authority here.

Kansas City is known for delicious BBQ, where a man can get lost in copious amounts of ribs slathered in the best BBQ sauce in the known world, nay universe.


Denver has omelets and steaks, but what they are know for is a little known delicacy called Rocky  Mountain Oysters. That’s right folks, if you cheer for the Broncos, you have to be a fan of deep fried calf testicles. I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a big ole bucket of NOPE.



Advantage, Kansas City. Advantage, BBQ. Advantage, Merica.


Next let’s take a look at the music selection of each city.



Kansas City is known for the sultry sounds of Blues Music, while Denver is most famous for Folk Music. this is a tough one here folks. Would you rather listen to B.B. King and Eric Clapton, or Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan? Welp…since I’m not a pot smoking hippy, and if you love football and Jesus you aren’t either, then you have to go with KC here, because John Denver.

John Denver


Advantage, Kansas City.


Now Let’s look at each team’s Head Coach.


With John Fox out with health issues, the Broncos are captained by Jack Del Rio. That’s right folks, former Jags coach, Jack Del Rio. Let that sink in for a minute. Honestly, does it really matter who the Head Coach for Denver is? I mean, with John Elway making all the real decisions, and Peyton Manning as QB 1, the Broncos are pretty much on auto-pilot.

Kansas city is coached by Andy Reid’s mustache.



Advantage, Kansas City.


Lastly, let’s look at each team’s fans.



When making an important life decision, like choosing which NFL team to cheer for, one must take into account a very important, key factor; the established fans of the team you are considering.

As a life long Saints fan, I can tell you that there is nothing more satisfying than wearing a paper bag over your head and yelling at the top of your lungs “WHO DAT” to the opposing team’s fans as they pass you by on Bourbon Street. Seriously you guys, Saints fans are deplorable, and I ought to know, I R ONE. Up until the Saints won the Super Bowl, we were the laughing stock of the league. So, with that knowledge in mind, let’s take a look at KC and Denver’s fans.

Kansas City fans aren’t used to winning. They don’t know how to act like they’ve been there before. Each year the “ONE AND DONE” chant resonates through Arrow Head Stadium like a sad trombone being played in the rain. However, this year is different! KC fans are drunkenly wild and gleefully insane with a 9-0 start, which makes for some pretty awesome DON’T TASE ME BRO video.

Fans of the Denver Broncos are refined. They would much rather drink a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon to celebrate a touchdown. Things aren’t normal in Mile High Stadium folks, just a few years ago, fans were satisfied with Tebowing and mediocre seasons filled with unrealistic goals and lackluster playoff pushes. Of Course, this is a new Denver, and in 2013 Denver fans express themselves like this guy.


Advantage, sadly, Denver.


So as you can see, Kansas City is the clear choice for your fandom. I hope my comprehensive guide has helped you choose the right team on Sunday, because it would be a crime if you chose the wrong one, no seriously, cheering for Denver is tantamount to crimes against America.  Whomever you choose however, I’m sure the game will be satisfying, as two of the NFL’s best face off Sunday Night at 7pm on NBC. Don’t miss it!

    Oddly the chiefs are known to some of the best fans in the NFL yet that’s where we lost to band wagoners in Denver alas we win this competition so I guess Ill act like I’ve been here before lol

  • gjrchief

    Really… a fan base that sells out Arrowhead game after game despite seasons with almost no wins. A fanbase that just set the world record for loudest crowd roar (at a 1:00pm game! not even prime time like the seahawks attempt was during) You have obviously not been in the arrowhead parking lot at 6am before a 4pm game to see it full of rabid fans tailgating, singing, sharing food and beer with total strangers. You obviously have not walked in Kansas City on a friday to see the entire town turn red in support of the Chiefs. I’m talking buildings, every person in jerseys, fountains… all red. There is no greater fan base in the NFL, despite lackluster seasons, fan support has never wavered. I would much rather see the Chiefs lose every other category than that one. Your knowledge of these cities, these teams, and these fan bases is an absolute joke.

      Wow..harsh lol

    • DTVTechGuy

      I agree here. To give any sort of ” Fanhood ” contest to the Bronco’s fans is simply ignorant.

  • Bandit Ref

    Good article Razor. I will now just sit back and enjoy the people who take football way way way to seriously.

    • DTVTechGuy


      You write articles for fan sided and then say something about people who take football way too seriously.

      Your articles get read because of people who take sports too seriously.

      Well done.

      You’re smart.

      • Razorhog

        I would posit that our articles get read by people who enjoy our articles. :)
        And yes he’s smart, have you seen his artwork? It’s genius!

        • DTVTechGuy

          You would posit…

          Great. Good for you.

          Reality is people who enjoy reading articles on FanSided don’t do so because they are obsessed with knitting. They do so because they are sports fans. To make a vague statement that can be construed as insulting to even a small portion of your target audience is beyond stupid.

          Good to see camaraderie though. Nice of you to stick up for your friend. :)

          • Bandit Ref

            I didn’t say football is bad, I said taking football seriously is silly. That’s why I love to make jokes about it.

            Football is my favorite thing, but I won’t let someone making a joke about ruin my day… cause it’s a game.

            Say something mean about the Jaguars, I can take it.

  • Razorhogs4life

    Football is serious business.

  • Razorhog

    I do love football fans though. You guys are the best.

  • RepOurChiefs

    Nice piece Razor. I GAINED a little respect for TheManFanatic after reading your words. His cocky/cutesy/lighthearted spin (though geographically wrong) on the wizard of oz rap touched my nerve. It was funny and showed lack of respect to the match up in my opinion but after i watched the vid,i saw his dedication to his team and THAT i understand to the fullest. Hope he chokes on his words though..with a side of donkey oysters. lol

    • Razorhog

      Thanks! I actually like both teams here. Gotta respect Manning for coming back from an injury that would kill most careers.

      • RepOurChiefs

        I have to agree. That man has been the Chiefs achilles for the longest time. I think we are finally rid of him and bam..over to denver he goes. lol But i cant dislike him. He is stand up and you got to respect his love and passion for the game. He truly is one of the best and the injury to the neck just ads to that character. But tonight………….he has no name. lol
