The AFC West has become what the AFC North was about two weeks ago, so for the second week in a row we have a major divisional showdown on “Sunday Night Football.” While last week it was the Browns against the Ravens, this week the Broncos will try to break out of a 6-5 stalemate with the Raiders and Chargers against the 7-4 Chiefs. With the season finale fast approaching, a two-game lead would be huge for Kansas City, especially with them seemingly warming up at the right time.
That, of course, starts with Patrick Mahomes. With the Chiefs coming off a bye week, they are just two games away from Mahomes’ masterful 406-yard, five-touchdown performance against the Raiders. That win, however, sits between two defensive showcases for the Chiefs against the Packers and Cowboys (certainly without Aaron Rodgers). In those two games against two of the best in the NFC, the Chiefs gave up just 16 points.
That could be a problem for a Broncos team that’s 23rd in scoring, among the worst of the teams still on the playoff scene in any conference. Teddy Bridgewater has been good this season, never really dazzling, with 15 touchdowns to five interceptions. He’s not losing Broncos games, but for the Broncos to win against powerful offenses, they need to build an early lead and win on the ground. Denver had 147 yards in its win against the Chargers last week. Even that might not be enough against the Chiefs.
The Broncos, to their credit, are at the top of what has been a season of peaks and valleys. They have won three of their last four after losing four in a row, which in turn came after starting 3-0. That the Broncos turn out to be one of the most streaky teams in football is a bit upsetting, so maybe they can build on that momentum against a Chiefs team that has won four games in a row after breaking at 3-4 earlier this year. season.
