Sunday Night Football in Week 13 will end up being a battle for the AFC West lead (potentially a four-way tie even). The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are separated by a game, so if Denver comes out on top we’ll see a very murky picture in the division.
The big news story for Denver is the loss of Melvin Gordon who was downgraded to out of this game on Saturday. That means it’ll be rookie Javonte Williams’ show this week in the team’s biggest game of the year.
Last week the Broncos stuck with the run throughout the game and it led to 33 carries for 147 yards and two touchdowns. That is the - and needs to continue to be - the identity of this team. The question still remains as to whether or not the game plan will keep the focus on the run. They should too, because the Chiefs are giving up 4.6 yards per carry on the ground. That ranks 28th in the NFL, one spot better than the Los Angeles Chargers.
If Denver can control the ball and pound the rock all game long like they did last week, I think they win this game too.
Here’s how to watch.

Broncos-Chiefs Betting Odds
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos opened a big 9.5-point underdog on the road to the Chiefs. However, as the week progressed that line has shifted slightly towards Denver. The line now stands at an 8.5-points in favor of Kansas City,
Being an AFC west matchup, we have a long history between these two franchises. All that matters now is the current 11 game losing streak the Broncos have against the Chiefs. It now ranks as the second longest losing streak to an AFC West team in Broncos’ history. The longest being a 20 game, 10 year drought to the Oakland Raiders in the 1960s and early 1970s.
