ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Spygate II was last weekend, Handshake II comes Sunday.

Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels seemed to welcome a respite on Wednesday from questions about videotape violations and instead answer queries about his post-game handshake snub last month.

The Broncos (3-8) visit the Chiefs (7-4) this weekend in the rematch of Denver's 49-29 blowout of Kansas City at Invesco Field last month, after which Chiefs coach Todd Haley broke post-game etiquette and wagged a finger in McDaniels' face instead of shaking his hand.

Haley apologized a day later in his news conference but never called McDaniels, who said he expects both men to shake hands Sunday regardless of what happens on the field or scoreboard.
