Both of these teams lost last week. KC is still in a great spot but that makes this one do or die for the defending Super Bowl champs.
This is a normal Sunday game but an odd spot with most of the league playing on Saturday.
I am not sure whether it is good or bad to be on the road like Denver is on Christmas Day.
Kick off is set for 8:30 PM ET with Kansas City looking to shake off a very hard loss to Tennessee that they blew. Denver needs this one more but KC might be more vulnerable.
The Broncos have lost back to back games scoring just 13 points combined so it is no secret where their challenges are. I know people want to put all the blame on the QBs but the running game has dryed up too with CJ Anderson on the shelf.
They have just a couple of weeks to get it right and it is probably not enough, facing a stingy defense like the Chiefs doesn’t help.
I am a little lost on why they can’t get more from their passing game. They have receivers who can do a lot after the catch.
In the two losses they have given up just 29 points, lowering their season average.
The defense might not be as good as a year ago but with Von Miller terrorizing QBs it is plenty good enough to win any ball game.
Denver lost the earlier game to KC at home in overtime. The 30 points they gave up that day were tied for the most they have yielded all season.
This group will have to step up and maybe win the game with some turnovers.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs were leading the entire game against Tennessee before losing. It was a surprising outcome for this team to get upset at home and their could be a hangover.
The offense hit a couple of big plays but kind of went into its shell in the second half. It was typical KC stuff they just couldn’t make the plays they needed to in the second half.
You have to wonder how the failure may influence the approach this week in an important situation. Maybe not mush win but I think a win guarantees a playoff berth.
Kansas City has a good defense but the Titans ran right at them with some success. Denver is not built that way but perhaps the Chiefs are starting to feel the loss of linebacker Derrick Johnson.
They are going to have to really tackle well across the field and be prepared for some creativity from the Broncos who are desperate to jump start their offense.
Trevor Siemian had his best game as a pro against KC when they met in Week 12.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Denver +4
These are the defending Super Bowl champs and I think they are going to respond to being on the brink while looking for revenge. Maybe being on the road will help a little.
