It doesn’t get much better than Sunday in the fall, and this particular week two showdown between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs should be a lot of fun to watch.
The Broncos won both matchups last season, and are heavy (12.5 point) favorites over the Chiefs this time around. In-division rivalry games are always circled on the calendar for both sides and carry extra importance in case of playoff tie breakers, but the Broncos are heavily favored for a reason. This is a home game they expect to and should win.
But, they have to take care of business. No matter how banged up the Chiefs are, the Broncos still have to come into this game prepared and can’t beat themselves with silly mistakes. I’m confident they’ll be just fine. Here’s what you need to know about the game.
