Two teams in the hunt for the play-offs clash in Denver on Sunday night.
Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos – Monday 01:30, SS2
Week 12’s Sunday night football may be the most important match of the week in playoff terms as AFC West rivals the Denver Broncos host the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are right in the playoff hunt with identical and impressive 7-2 records yet still sit behind division leaders the Oakland Raiders.
One long 500 mile stretch of road connects the cities of Kansas and Denver, the rivalry goes back to 1960 after the American Football League was merged and the two teams have been in the same division ever since. It really is a huge game and the Chiefs will be hoping they can find their early season form rather than the last three weeks where performances have dipped, culminating in last week’s loss at home to Tampa Bay.
Denver and its elite defense are coming into this home game off a bye week having won four of their five home games so far and this is sure to be a very tough game for the Chiefs to get something from. Kansas City are 19th in the NFL for points scored coming into this one and we don’t expect that to improve much against this Broncos defense, take Denver to cover the point spread.
