The Broncos’ defense is allowing 239.2 passing yards, 110.6 rushing yards, and 18.3 points per game. The Chiefs do have a lot of talent on this offense between Mahomes, Edwards-Helaire, Kelce, and Hill, there are a lot of options for Mahomes to spread the ball around and move down the field. The Chiefs have played 6 games this season and of those, only 3 of them were won by 10+ points. Also, 3 of the last 4 games they played in Denver they won by less than 10 points, usually decided by a field goal each time. Denver is always a tough place to play considering the elevation and the Chiefs could be in for a close one here.
Broncos Running Strong
The Denver Broncos come into this game under .500 straight up but, are well over .500 in ATS record. They have an ATS record of 4-1 on the season and a home ATS record of 1-1. They enter this game riding a 2 game win streak after losing their first 3 games. The Broncos offense is led by Drew Lock who returned from injury last week leading his team to victory in his first game back. He is averaging 143 passing yards per game, a 53.2% completion percentage, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. Drew Lock has only played 2 full games due to the injury but, expect his play to pick up the more he plays and gets into a rhythm.
The Broncos are also averaging 101 rushing yards per game and 20 points per game. They are going up against a Chiefs defense that allows 208 passing yards, 145.3 rushing yards, and 21.2 points per game. The Broncos will have to move the ball on the ground against this defense if they want to move the ball up the field. Luckily, they have a few solid options at running back and should be able to gain yards between the three of them. The Broncos have also played 5 games this season and of those 5, only 1 of those games they lost by 10+ points. The Broncos play very well at home and have been playing close games all year. They will come to play hard against the Chiefs on Sunday.
