Denver Broncos vs Kansas City Chiefs
Monday night football featuring the red hot Chiefs visiting the Mile High Stadium, home to the Denver Broncos.
Second year QB Mahomes continues to impress. He just broke Payton Mannings record on TD passes in the first 3 games, totaling 13 now. His performance thus far was simply astonishing. Combined with super stars like Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce or Kareem Hunt, the Chiefs are always capable to score a bunch of TDs. Anyway, it's not like they depend on those players. Mahomes makes use of all of his weapons and is therefore very tough to defend.
It is necessary to score that many points since the Chiefs D is the leagues worst so far, conceding 474 (!) yards per game. It's always fun to watch KCs matches...
The Broncos fell to the Ravens last week (yeehaa) and showed little to nithing. The game started in their favor with a blocked punt followed by a one play TD. They added another one on a end-around by Sanders where the Ravens' edge containment totally broke down - and that's it. For the remaining 3 quarters, the Broncos were shut out.
The Ravens provided the league with a blueprint on how to shut down Von Miller. If the Chiefs are able to do this, too, this one should be easy going for KC.
QB Case Keenum left a lot to be desired, too, throwing for under 200y including an INT (no TDs).
One might say that at some point a team will be capable to stop the Chiefs. I simply don't think the Broncos will be that team after the really poor performance at BAL. The Chiefs will win this one by at least a TD or so. Thus, odds of 2,0 for KC -4 hold some value.
