An old-fashioned AFC West battle takes place Sunday afternoon with the 7-1 Denver Broncos hosting the 3-5 Kansas City Chiefs.
Kick off is set for 4:25 PM ET as the Chiefs hope to avenge the loss they suffered at the hands of the Broncos in Week 2.
Kansas City Chiefs
After a disappointing 1-5 start, the Kansas City Chiefs rattled off two impressive wins before heading into their bye week. Now, the Chiefs are fresh, and they’re looking to knock off a team that has owned them over the last few years.
Kansas City’s season was thought to be a lost cause after star running back Jamaal Charles tore his ACL in Week 5, but Charcandrick West has been a stable substitute filling in for the injured Charles.
West has compiled 207 rushing yards and two touchdowns over his last two games, and a stable running game helps keep the pressure off quarterback Alex Smith.
Kansas City’s offense is middle of the road at best, but it has looked much better as of late.
The Chiefs are averaging 34 points per game over their last two games, and they’ll look to continue that against a Denver Broncos defense that was exposed against the Indianapolis in Week 9.
Limiting turnovers is the only way to beat the Broncos, and Smith is one of the best in the business when it comes to protecting the football. Shorter passes have always been Smith’s forte, and he hasn’t thrown an interception since Sept. 28.
The Broncos have lived and died by their defense all season, but some injuries a suspension will make their unit vulnerable on Sunday.
The Broncos have been forced to live through their defense, because the once-immaculate Peyton Manning has been pedestrian at best, looking more like Eli and less like Peyton.
The Broncos also have no running game, and both C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman are banged up anyway. This means Manning is going to have to throw the ball, and that hasn’t worked out very well this season. Manning has just 2,145 yards to go along with 9 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
Numbers like those are generally reserved for guys named Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins, but alas, they are Manning’s.
On the defensive side of the ball, Denver will most likely be without the services of Demarcus Ware, Shane Ray and Aqib Talib.
Those three have been instrumental in shutting down opposing offenses, so the Broncos will have to rely on a few of their other playmakers against Kansas City.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Kansas City +6
I’m fully aware that Denver has owned Kansas City recently, but the Broncos are incredibly lucky to be 7-1, and they’ve would’ve lost to the Chiefs in Week 2 if Jamaal Charles would’ve just held on to the ball in the fourth quarter.
The Chiefs are playing much better football as of late, and they’ll be fresh off a bye while the Broncos will be without three of their best defensive players.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Kansas City 24 – Denver 20
I like Kansas City to pull off the upset in this one. At 3-5, the Chiefs are still in contention for an AFC Wild Card spot. It should be another hard-fought AFC West showdown, but I think Kansas City steals a win in Denver.
