Chiefs vs. Broncos TV Coverage: NBC
The Chiefs had their five-game winning streak snapped last week as they lost at home to Tampa Bay. The Chiefs have struggled to score points for much of the season as their 222 total points scored is the fewest of any team in the AFC West. Quarterback Alex Smith doesn’t make many mistakes but he made a big one last week as he threw an interception in the red zone that probably cost Kansas City the game against the Bucs.
Kansas City is just 19th in the NFL in points per game and they are 25th in total offensive plays. The Chiefs have relied on their defense to win games as Kansas City is allowing just 18.7 points per game.
The Broncos have similar overall numbers to Kansas City as Denver is scoring about 24 points per game which is 14th in the league while they are 9th in defense, giving up about 19 points per contest. The Broncos have won 7 of their 10 games this season and Denver has been a good bet against the number going 7-3 ATS.
Denver has done well in this series of late going 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings. The Chiefs have been a good road team going 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games but Denver is good at home going 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. The Broncos are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. the AFC.

How are the Chiefs going to move the ball against the Denver defense? The Chiefs simply don’t have much offensive talent and this should be a dominating performance from the Denver defense. I will lay the points and take Denver and also play the game under the total.
