    KC is playing good football as of late. They are beatable though. Denver needs to stop the run game and not let Kelce control the game. Then they can focus on the running the ball on offense and limiting the Chiefs possessions. Forcing a few turnovers while not turning the ball over ourselves may be the best way to the win this game. We haven't won in Arrowhead since 2015, it would be nice to change that Sunday.

      Thanks for answering my question.

      If I were just a casual fan, I’m not certain I would agree with them. But I am a Broncos fan, so I’ll take it.

        Wait, help me with the math...

        - Losing season means less wins than losses
        - Broncos are 6 and 5
        - The Broncos have 6 games to go
        - If we win out, we are 12 and 5
        - Based on my high level mathematical ability, that would equate to 7 more wins than losses (hmmm)
        - Conclusion: The Broncos do not have to win out, or even come close, to have a winning season

        Therefore, your interpretation of a losing season is far different than mine. And if you equate it to not making the playoffs (I guess??), we still do not have to win out. 11 and 6 is pretty much a guarantee. 10 and 7 might be the magic number. 9 and 8 might be good enough this year. Who knows?

          Can you imagine if it comes down to our last game this season, to determine the playoffs? And can you imagine a better finish than to host KC on the final day? Even if we lose to KC on their turf this weekend, we can still make the playoffs, and of course that last game at home would probably be a real factor in the equation. Who knows, might be wintry day, and just 2 teams bashing pads together. Run game would be critical, as would D.

          We look really good in Orange and Blue and lots of White!!!

            The Steelers don’t stink and it’s not a surprise that the Broncos lost that game.

            The Steelers seem to be a bit like the Broncos where they are inconsistent in using a winning formula. I blame Roethlisberger. He seems to want to be in shotgun too much. The offense should run through Najee Harris but I don’t think they’ve been running the ball as much as the owner would like.

              This team has a tendency to let down following a good win, like the let down after the win against the Cowboys. I’m keeping expectations realistic and hoping for the best. Until the Broncos prove they can beat their big brother they haven’t done anything.
              I agree. All the trends tell me it is going to be tough just hoping we do something different this week.

                It is probably a buisness decision based on what games other networks already have locked in.

                It is also probably more about the Chiefs coming back to form than anyone expecting us to really challange them.

                  Yeah, it's this. They want Mahomes on Prime Time kicking our butt.

                  Hope we stick it to 'em that much more for it.

                  IIRC, they were reportedly choosing between this one and the Chargers/Bengals game.... but they had to choose before knowing which one would be better playoff implications... so they went with the one with Mahomes.

                  I forget what game got flexed out.

                    KC will load the box to stop Gordon/Williams which should open some 1:1 matchups with our receivers. It would only take 1-2 completions of 20+ yards to get their defense to not load the box - at that point Gordon/Williams can pound the ball. I think it goes back to what you’ve pointed out with the run with the wins. On the road in a loud stadium the way to win is to grind out a relatively low scoring game. No way we can keep up with a high scoring game - needs to be a dog fight.

                      Good decision NFL!!!!

                      A trending upward KC team, with of course a star player at QB, and a very meaningful game in The West.

                      There have been some yawner evening games this year, so this is very much warranted, and could be very impactful in the end.

                      I actually believe there's a buzz, not a loud buzz, about this Broncos' D and run game, which many experts can't help but compare a wee bit to the makeup of our last SB champs. Not nearly that caliber at this point, but something that puts us on radar here and there.

                      And again, KC is making their move, and they are often a popular choice for prime time.

                        Wut?

                        Tried to give the game away on Gordon’s fumble but the Broncos beat the WFT.

                          Consider we already have more wins this year than last.

                          Consider that we are on the cusp of a winning record this year. For the first time since 2016.

                          This is a better team than last year's Broncos.

                            The defense has been better. The offense is still bad.

                            The defense is giving up 10 points less a game this year. The offense is still only averaging 20 points a game. We're not that much better.

                            If we were, we wouldn't have lost to, at least, the Browns and Eagles. Those two losses were pathetic and humiliating. A complete joke on every level.

                            If we beat the Chiefs, I will start to buy in that this team can possibly make the playoffs.

                              I said, we are a better team. I stand by that. The record itself is indisputable proof of that statement.

                              I will go so far as to say, we are better on defense...AND on offense too. Special teams are just as horrid as they have been for several years though.

                              I contend we are better on offense, simply because the offense is on the field more than they were last year. More first downs, more time of possession. I also contend those things are a part of the reason the defense is improved. That said, the offense does have a ways to go before being "good". But it is nonetheless, improved from last season.

                                The Broncos were 4-7 at this point last season however strength of schedule was more difficult. Opponents through 11 games in 2020:

                                Titans, Steelers, Buccaneers, Jets, Patriots, Chiefs, Chargers, Falcons, Raiders, Dolphins and Saints. Hinton was the QB vs Saints.

                                Defense improved this season however we also have to account for the opponents - shut out the Jets, Browns with Keenum, WFT’s low scoring offense and Dallas with Prescott coming off injury.

                                Beating KC on the road would be a big step. We’ve also seen this team let down like they did against Philly.
