The 2017 Season will come to an official end for the Denver Broncos on Sunday as they face the Kansas City Chiefs at home in the final week of the season. The arduous and challenging season will likely set off with some big changes in the offseason, but first, they have one more game to play.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, December 23, 2017 at 2:25 p.m. Mile High time at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

With the Chiefs resting their starters and rolling with rookie Patrick Mahomes II, Vegas opened the Broncos 3.5-point favorites at home. With Mahomes being confirmed, the line has risen to 4.5-points, which I think is absurd. Paxton Lynch is not a guy any sane person should put money on in this game.
Von Miller has no quit in him. He is looking to go out there in Week 17 and put forth maximum effort and end the season on a high note.
“I still have opportunity,” Miller said on Friday. “I have 10 sacks right now. Our defense has been playing lights out all year long. We still have an opportunity to build on that and still finish high defensively despite all of the other adversities and challenges that we’ve been through this year. That’s what keeps me going. When I pull up to the gate and my key card still works, I come in the locker room and guys still respect me, coaches still love me and I still love to play football, that’s where we’re going to keep it.”
Prediction? Paxton Lynch will verify what we all already know. He is not long for the NFL. Vance Joseph will continue to make a strong case for his dismissal as head coach. John Elway, afraid of damaging his legacy, will likely avoid rocking the boat so soon after ... well ... rocking the boat. Mahomes goes out there and does just enough to win a pathetically low scoring affair.
Prediction: 5-11. With Salt.
