The AFC North and the AFC West are battling to see which division can have the biggest jam of teams with .500 or better.
Currently, the AFC West is winning it. All four teams in their division currently have winning records and the first-place team is separated from the last-place team by just one game.
AFC West Standings
The uncertain nature of this divisional race will make Week 13’s “Sunday Night Football” showdown even more interesting.
Two of the AFC West teams are fighting on national television after their battle stretched from Sunday afternoon time to night time. The Chiefs in first place will have to avoid competition from the Broncos in third place if they want to continue to lead the division, or better yet, extend their advantage over the other teams in the division.
Kansas City was the favorite to win the division before the season and has recently shaken off a cold start to climb the rankings. Can they continue their ascent? Or will the Broncos, who started as 10-point underdogs, make a game out of this?
Find out more about the Week 13 matchup below, plus everything you need to know about watching “Sunday Night Football.”

Who is playing ‘Sunday Night Football’ tonight?
- Match: Broncos at Chiefs
- Location: Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Broncos (6-5) travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs (7-4) in a game that will decide whether the Chiefs will remain in first place in the packed AFC West.
All four AFC West teams are currently 6-5 or better. The Chiefs have a small one-game lead over the Broncos, Chargers and Raiders, but they hope to bring down Denver this week. The Chiefs are coming off a break and Andy Reid is 19-3 for his career after a bye week. So that would apparently give the Chiefs a huge advantage in this game.
The Chiefs have won four games in a row. Their offense has still been spinning at times, but the team’s defense has been excellent lately. Moving Chris Jones back to defensive tackle from defensive end has made a huge difference to the passing run and the entire stop unit, so expect him to keep running there.
Jones will be looking to pressure Teddy Bridgewater behind an offensive line that has been battered in recent weeks. And Bridgewater himself was brought down last week in the Broncos’ 28-13 win over the Chargers and had to waste a bit of time. Denver will need him healthy if they want a chance to beat the Chiefs, who are the favorites.
Denver has lost 11 straight games to Kansas City. Peyton Manning started the last game the Broncos won in September 2015.
