Kansas City at Denver
The season long Chiefs skid continues and on the road the anemic offense has avg’d 9 ppg, 14 FD/gm and 253 ypg. The “bad news” is that none of those 5 opp’s have a winning record. Denver knows they still have to win to secure a playoff bye but no way will they will risk the health of Manning and once a lead is established expects a conservative ground game. The Broncos are the ONLY NFL team with both their offense and defense ranked in the top 5 but in the last 7 weeks they’re avg only 28 ppg. The Chiefs topped 500 yds LW with 352 (7.6) rushing but those numbers will not happen against a Broncos team with a #2 rush D.
