Just like any Denver Broncos player, linebacker Shane Ray is excited about taking on the Kansas City Chiefs, especially this season. The Chiefs are currently undefeated and look like the team to beat, so there’s no question that Ray and the Broncos want to not only catch them in the standings but potentially hand them their first loss.
The two teams will meet on Monday Night Football on October 30, and interestingly that’s the day that Ray is set to make his 2017 NFL debut after suffering a torn ligament in his left wrist. But for the Broncos linebacker, this game is more than just a rivalry, because he has to deal with the Chiefs pretty much every day.
In his own home.
As Ray told BSN Denver’s Ryan Koenigsberg, his cousin lives with him, and he’s a huge Chiefs fan.
“I have to see him in his red Chiefs jumpsuit on game day,” Ray said, shaking his head. “I have to hear him talk about how good the Chiefs are and this and that.”
“He die-hard hates the Broncos,” Ray shared with a laugh. “He doesn’t care that I’m on the team and I’m his cousin. He literally wears Chiefs jerseys to the Broncos games. That’s my cousin.”
Ray went on to state simply that “living with a Chiefs fan is awful.” But interestingly, Ray actually grew up as a Chiefs fan himself. He received plenty of criticism for the KC logo that’s tattooed on his back, but as you can tell, the Broncos playmaker seems to be far beyond caring much about the Chiefs. All he wants to do now is take them down.
“I don’t think it could play out any better. With how well the Chiefs are playing, I feel like we’re the team to beat them. I feel like we’re the team that balances up against them very well and for me to come back in that game to add some pass rush, I’m so excited. I want to be a part of the reason why we take them down and really take over our division.”
