Jonas Brother Tiny Desk Concert
Jonas Brother Tiny Desk Concert:The Jonas Brothers took a break from their Happiness Begins arena tour to stop by the NPR offices for their first-ever Tiny Desk concert, which dropped Monday (Sept. 30).
The guys kicked their performance off with “Sucker,” transforming the No. 1 hit into a swinging jazz number complete with Joe Jonas brandishing a tiny, multi-colored tambourine and trading falsetto-tinged vocals with brother Nick Jonas.
After slowing things down with romantic album cut “I Believe,” the band incorporated the many toys and knickknacks scattered around the desk into their ‘80s-inspired single “Only Human.” (While Nick pounded out the song’s melodic hook on a miniature toy piano and Joe played around with a quacking buzzer, Kevin Jonas stuck to his trusty guitar.)

Keeping Patrick Mahomes on the sideline has worked wonders for Kansas City’s opponents, providing a blueprint for the Broncos on Thursday night as they seek their first win over the Chiefs in four years.
“Every game has its own personality,” cautioned Broncos coach Vic Fangio .
Every team also builds its own reputation, and the Chiefs (4-2) have a dud of a defense to go along with that firecracker offense. Exploit that and the Broncos (2-4) can jump right back into the AFC West race after their September stumble.
Over the past four weeks, the Chiefs, who have lost two in a row after a 4-0 start, have allowed an average of 190 rushing yards and 4.97 yards a carry as their opponents piled up eight TD runs.
“We have to fix it,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.
The Chiefs have allowed a 100-yard rusher in four consecutive weeks, and it would have been five if not for the Raiders’ Josh Jacobs’ hydration problems – he finished with 99 yards on just 12 carries.
“I mean, look, there’s just one area we don’t feel great about and it’s stopping the run,” said first-year coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who has transitioned the Chiefs from a 3-4 to a 4-3 defense. “We don’t want to be looking at the number of run plays, the yardage they’re putting up with runs – somehow, some way we have to figure it out. Until we stop it, we’re going to see it.”
Up next are the Broncos, winners of two straight and the NFL’s only team that sports two running backs each with at least 400 scrimmage yards. But if Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay, who have accounted for 973 yards so far, are relishing the matchup, they’re masking it pretty good.
“Every game in the NFL is tough,” Lindsay said.
Freeman looked at the rushing totals the Chiefs have allowed the past four weeks: Ravens (203), Lions (186), Colts (180) and Texans (192), and shrugged.
“Every team goes out there and they make their adjustments week to week,” Freeman said. “You’ve got to assume they’re going to go out there and try to switch things up. Plus, we have a short week, so you never know what to expect.”
Just look at Denver’s defense , which found a quick fix to its run game problems. After allowing Leonard Fournette to go wild as the Jaguars piled up 269 yards on them, the Broncos allowed just 35 yards to the Chargers and 39 to the Titans.
“It’s the NFL. Guys change things every week,” Freeman said. “Our defense has done a great job flipping the script.”
It’s time for Denver’s offense to do likewise, he added.
