    The Denver Broncos, despite an up-and-down season, sit just one game out of the AFC West lead with the Kansas City Chiefs up next.

      The Chefs have been beating the broncos because their defense always plays very well against the broncos. Happens every time, its not so much the chefs offense. Watch them hold the broncos under 20 points in this game. The broncos can't win unless the broncos offense wins over the chefs defense.

        I havent watched much of them this year, can we run them over?

        Also, anyone got a theory why Boone doesn’t get any run? Seems like a gamebreaker opportunity

          Last year, with Carolina, Bridgewater went 36/49 passing against the Chiefs in Arrowhead, 310 yds, 2TDs, no INTs, plus two rushes for 19 yds and another TD. And his team still lost, 33-31.

          The D needs to show up.

          Will they? I have no frigging idea. Week to week to week, this is a hard team to predict. Just when you start to get encouraged, they lay a smelly egg. Then, when you decide the season's over, they come back with a strong effort. It's all nuts this year. And not just in Denver.

            Most of the blowouts this year were due to the Broncos defense not showing up. KC has had two weeks to game plan. I think it’s going to be a rough night.

              They were running with Jones as an edge rusher and he did okay in losses. They moved him back to DT and he has been destroying the middle on both run stopping and pass rushing. He needs to be double teamed and maybe have a RB or TE cover the hole created by such...

              But the broncos are built to dink down the field and have the weapons to deal with it if they play it correctly. Running game has to be used properly...

              Gonna be a good one.

              Go Broncos!

                    I'm predicting that Shurmur forgets we have a RB. That, coupled with the fact that we no longer have our elite cover LB Von Miller, spells a long (short?) night for the Broncos.

                      Since we are hoping for an upset, here are some fun facts:

                      In the past ten years, the average % of NFL underdogs who win outright has been 23%. So far this year that number has increased to a whopping 39%. 😮

                      35 games have seen the winning score come in the final minute of regulation or overtime. That is the 4th most nail-biters in any season since the merger. 😮

                      25 games this season have been decided on the final play. That is the most through 12 weeks since the 1970 merger. 😮

                        This team is capable of getting off to a hot start and beating anyone but they’re just as likely to start slow on both sides and get stomped. Need to start fast and put together long clock consuming drives.

                            I’m agreeing that Boone should have a few touches in the game. Screens. Of course Pookie is a great candidate for that as well and may be why Boone is left on the bench. I’m all for him grabbing some of Gordon’s touches.

                                The Denver Broncos have a massive game on Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. We make our five bold predictions.

                                  I agree that the Chiefs defense is the key to this game.

                                  Here is what most of you have probably missed the last several weeks regarding the Chiefs D -

                                  1. Chris Jones has been playing primarily at DT again. The experiment to put him at end didn't work out. Inside, as @oldcoyote mentioned...Jones has been a force again.

                                  2. Spagnuolo had stubbornly been putting Dan Sorenson and Ben Nieman on the field, often at the same time, way to much. Sorenson, and especially Nieman, are a couple guys I think Spags likes to hold up as examples of how you can be rewarded with playing time if you show up on time to meetings and really get your head into the playbook. Unfortunately, neither is good. Sorenson, in the right role is ok, but Nieman has no business on an NFL roster, let alone being on the field for high snap counts. Spags may be stubborn but he isn't dumb. He has put Sorenson back into a role he can handle wich is as a hybird LB/S type who plays certain packages. Nieman is seeing alot less playing time and Willie Gay and Nick Bolton are seeing more time. Gay has become the fast, sideline to sideline, coverage LB we've been lacking for years. Bolton, despite limted snaps, is near or at the top in tackles for loss. This coupled with item 1, has been the main 2 reasons for the dramaitc turnaround. As you watch the game, look for 50, and 54 and note the speed. It stands out.

                                  3. KC's corners are healthy. Charvarious Ward is one of the most underrated CB's in the leauge. Rashad Fenton is underrated. LaJarious Sneed is playing at a high level after a slow start. KC, despite the early bad start, is ranked very high again (as they have been the last few years) at defending WR targets.

                                  On offense....KC has both the 1st and 2nd ranked players in dropped passes. Kelce and Hill. KC has the most lost points due to drops....and that is a big margin compared to the 2nd worst team. 6 of Mahomes INTS had a 75% or higher chance of being completions. It's incredible how many good passes simply bounced off of a recievers hands and right into a DB's hands instead. Mahomes has been off this year and is still near or at the top in several passing categories. A bad year for Mahomes (this year) is a career year still for many QBs. We are still waiting for the offense to click as it has before...there have been some signs it's getting there..but we haven't seen it yet..maybe the Raiders game was as close as we've seen to it clicking..but not consistantly so far.

                                  The Oline, wich has 5 new starters, has as expected, taken some time to gel. Orlando Brown, has clearly had a tough time adjusting but his play over the past 3-4 weeks has gotten better. The interior has been really good. Creed Humphrey may well make All Pro at C as a rookie. Trey Smith has been very good as a rookie G. Thuney is overpaid but has been solid. RT has been problematic as Niang has had some struggles then got hurt...then Remmers got hurt...been down to Wiley who has started at RT the past couple weeks. He's done that before so he's not completely blind out there, but he's only a stopgap. They've been able to work through that so far.

                                  As you all have noted, KC has had 2 weeks to gameplan for this...Ried is excellent coming off a bye, the game is in KC, it's Sudnay night. The crowd will be insane. KC has improved as the season has gone on, and with Tennessee faltering, KC is a mere game out of the 1 seed at this point (and barring a late fumble VS Baltimore in week 2, KC would be the 1 seed now) I predict KC wins this one big.

                                  If Denver were to pull an upset, it would need:

                                  To be plus in turnovers
                                  have a big day on the ground
                                  have a better day than KC on third down.

                                  KC 27, Denver 15

                                    Giving you a hard time. I agree you guys have the upper hand, but it’s progress for us to be playing you for first place. KC has been pretty lucky to come out with wins in the last 4 weeks or so. This is a great test for Fangio, his defense and TBW. If they beat KC then it’s game on. We shall see. That’s why they play the games.

                                      Denver is going to need to break out of their pattern of posting an impressive win and then following it with a dud. As expected, KC has started to figure things out as the season progressed. They still aren't the Juggernauts that the media expected in Pre-season, but are slowly rounding into form. Meanwhile, this Broncos squad remains an enigma. The Von Miller trade signaled we were punting on the season, but we have gone 2-1 since then and are now statistically in a position to take the division.

                                      Sadly, I suspect this game will largely be decided by half-time and a late 4th quarter surge by Teddy against soft zone coverages will make the final score appear closer than it really was. Chiefs take this one 27-17.

                                        KC is getting hot just don’t see a win here….but I didn’t see wins earlier either.

                                        31-20 KC

                                          Just doesn't feel like Fangio and this coaching staff have the chops to win a game like this.

                                          Hope I'm wrong and pleasantly surprised.

                                            40-14 for the bad guys....

                                              They have won a few big games and now have us in position. Yes, they could crap the bed but here we are flexed to prime time & playing for first place. Not bad.

                                                Eh, they've won one big game really, the Dallas performance that came out of nowhere. Maybe last week too, but Chargers are middle of the road and played on the road.

                                                Reid & Co. will easily outcoach this staff. Instead of running the ball 35 times, we'll look to throw it thinking we have to. Result will be shorter possessions, and more scoring opportunities for Mahomes.

                                                Again, I hope I am wrong, but it would be a surprise.
