The Broncos have chosen to have star cornerback Champ Bailey shadow an opposing wide receiver at times when the Broncos have faced elite players such as Brandon Marshall and Calvin Johnson.
Bailey figures to spend much of Sunday following Kansas City's Dwayne Bowe, like he did when the teams played last year. In the second matchup, Bailey held Bowe without a catch and also drew an offensive pass interference penalty.
"He's a heck of a competitor, heck of a talent and has always been a pain in the butt, whether it's the receivers coach or coordinator or head coach to play offense against," Kansas City coach Todd Haley said.
"We've got a good game plan for (Bowe)," Bailey said. "We're still ironing out some things, so I guess they're going to see how we play before they make their adjustments."
