Sunday Night Preview

The Chiefs might have a stranglehold on the AFC West, but they still have an incentive to try and win out in the regular season. There is only one bye in each conference so grabbing the No. 1 overall seed is monumental. Kansas City trails the Pittsburgh Steelers by one game in the standings. A win on Sunday night would put some pressure on the Steelers, who play the Washington Football Team on Monday.

For the Broncos, they need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. If they drop this game, they would need to win four in a row to close the season to even have a chance at making the playoffs.

Let’s take a deeper dive into these two teams.

 

Chiefs Game Notes

When we are talking about the Kansas City Chiefs, the conversation starts and ends with Patrick Mahomes. The reigning Super Bowl MVP is well on his way to his second regular-season MVP in only three years as a starter. He’s coming into Week 13 after posting one of the best performances of his young career against the elite Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense last week.

Mahomes completed 37 of 49 passes for 462 yards and three touchdowns. He has no shortage of options to pass to, but Tyreek Hill is as hot as any player in the NFL right now. He has at least 100 receiving yards in each of his last three games and six total touchdowns in those contests. Hill posted a ludicrous 269 yards and three touchdowns against the Bucs.

Even though the Broncos have a solid defense, it’s tough to imagine anyone being able to stop Mahomes right now. Denver has their work cut out for them.

 

Broncos Game Notes

The good news is that the Broncos will have their quarterbacks back this week after starting practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback last week. The bad news is that Drew Lock and his backups haven’t inspired much confidence this season. Lock is atrocious on the road and he’s heading into a buzzsaw in Kansas City this weekend.

In order for the Broncos to keep this one close, they are going to have to help out Lock by establishing the running game. Unfortunately, Phillip Lindsay is banged up and his status for Sunday’s game is still in question. When Lindsay is healthy, he forms a solid two-headed rushing attack with Melvin Gordon. Slowing the game down and keeping the ball out of Mahomes’ hands is the best way to try and pull off the upset.

Defensively, the Broncos excel against the pass. They are only allowing 210.1 yards per game through the air, which is good enough for seventh in the NFL. Of course, most offenses aren’t near as dominant as the Chiefs so the Broncos will have their work cut out for them.
