I really don’t have to break down the importance of this game for the Denver Broncos as with the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals still remaining undefeated for the time being, if the team is able to have a shot a home-field advantage, this is a must-win.
Another factor in this game is that a win against the Chiefs would put more pressure on the rest of the AFC West. The Broncos have the opportunity to move to 3-0 in the division and stay at least three games ahead of the Oakland Raiders for the division. That can be four if the Minnesota Vikings win in the Black Hole today.
It’s also a rare home game for the Broncos as they are playing at home for only the fourth time this season, but they have taken care of their home dates, having outscored the Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers 23.6-14.3 on average in going 3-0 at 5,280 feet.
If the Broncos win, quarterback Peyton Manning becomes the winningest signal-caller in NFL history and if he passes for 3 yards, he has the NFL’s all-time passing yardage mark as well and will likely be within striking distance of CFL legend Damon Allen for the #2 mark in North American pro football history.

Of course, we all want the win but if not, be dignified to any Chiefs fans who may happen upon this thread. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has shown us the way to conduct ourselves appropriately so let us all do that. Thanks to Micah for visiting last week, it meant a lot 🙂 GO BRONCOS!
