The Denver Broncos (3-4) will be travelling east to take on the Kansas City Chiefs (6-1) in a must-win situation. That’s a tough spot to be against one of the most explosive offensive teams in the league in 2018.
If you see YELLOW in your area in the map below, then you will get the Broncos-Chiefs game on your local CBS station.
Much of the western United States will get the game on Sunday, which includes Alaska. However, parts of the far west coast will get bypassed for the late AFC game. Hawaii will have to enjoy the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.
For the Broncos, it will be all about the containment of Patrick Mahomes in this game. Then from there, it is about containing Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, etc.
We have to do a better job of containing the quarterback,” Head Coach Vance Joseph said on Wednesday. “He made most of his plays outside of the pocket. It can’t happen again. We have a plan going in, but he’s a great player. He’s going to make some plays and it really comes down to how we rush and how we cover this guy. But, he’s going to make some plays.”
If Joseph is right, that means Case Keenum and the Broncos offense is going to have to make some plays against one of the NFL’s worst defenses. And do it on the road where they have only won two games on the road in two seasons.
The game will be called by Kevin Harlan (play-by-play), Rich Gannon (analyst), and Steve Tasker (sideline reporting). Kickoff is set for Sunday, October 28, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. mile high time at Arrowhead Stadium, in Kansas City, Missouri.
