Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs – Preview, Tips and Odds

The Denver Broncos travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at the Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, for a matchup in week 13 of the NFL regular season.

This is a crucial AFC West matchup, where the Chiefs currently lead the way with a 7-4 record, while the Broncos are one of three teams behind them with a 6-5 record, there is still a lot to play for here.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs Head to Head

This is the first meeting of the season between these two teams, they will also play in the final week of the regular season, a game that could have huge implications on the standings, that game will be in Denver.

In terms of overall head to head, there is only one winner recently and that is the Kansas City Chiefs.

They have won the last 11 meetings between these two teams, you have to go all the way back to September 2015 to find the last Denver win, and they did it on the road at the Arrowhead Stadium.

Their most recent meeting was back in December 2020, a game that the Chiefs won 22-16.

Denver wide receiver Tim Patrick was the star of that game, with two touchdowns, and he is still with the team so will be looking for more of the same this weekend to add to the four touchdowns he already has this season.

Denver Broncos Form

The Broncos come here on the back of a very impressive win over the Los Angeles Chargers at home last weekend, winning that one 28-13. Their last road game was also a success, and a big one, beating the Dallas Cowboys 30-16, so playing on the road certainly does not harm their chances of winning.

The Broncos ran the football very well last week, look for them to do the same here, Javonte Williams ran for 54 yards and scored a touchdown while Melvin Gordon didn’t score but ran for 83 yards. If the Denver run game can get going again, that certainly increases their chance of success in the game.

Scoring is spread around this offensive group, with Gordon leading the way in terms of touchdowns with five on the year.

Kansas City Chiefs Form

The Chiefs come here off their bye week but before that in week 11, they won 19-9 against the Dallas Cowboys, and that low score is a sign of just how well their defense has been playing recently.

After a big loss in week seven to the Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs have now won four straight games, and three of those have come at home, so they are certainly making us of the support they are getting.

Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are the two main targets for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and they comfortably lead the team in both receiving yards and touchdowns scored. Hill has eight to his name so far this season, while Kelce has five including the one he scored in their most recent game against the Cowboys.
