NFL: New York Jets at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have not beaten the Kansas City Chiefs in their last 15 tries and it is unlikely they succeed in their 16th as they play on Thursday Night Football in Week 6.

Game Preview

If the Broncos are to have any chance of winning this game they will need to find a way to play defense. The run defense is the primary concern, because if Patrick Mahomes doesn’t need to throw the ball to win it will be a very long night for Denver.

Defensive Coordinator Vance Joseph said he is ‘pissed off’ about it and working hard to fix the issues.

“It’s been frustrating. It hasn’t been fun, but my focus is improving weekly,” he said. “It’s been bizarre, a little bit. But I get it, it’s the league. It’s a hard league. But no one’s blinking. Everyone’s working. And I’m working to fix it. And I thought last week it was closer, outside four or five plays. We can’t have those plays. That’s not NFL football. You can’t run through the defense for 70 yards untouched. I’m not used to that. I’m unfamiliar with that. Yes, I’m pissed off about that. Absolutely I am. But I’m not broken. I’m working to get it fixed, but I’m not happy about that.”

The big if and the only chance Denver has in this game is if the Broncos defense plays lights out. If they can get pressure on Mahomes and stuff the run game, they might be able to keep the score low enough to give Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense a chance to keep pace and potentially steal a win out of Arrowhead.

Here’s how to watch.

Broncos-Chiefs Betting Odds

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos opened massive 10.5-point road underdogs to the Chiefs for Thursday Night Football. That line has grown to 11-points by game day with an over/under at 47. I actually have my score prediction at 31-20 in favor of the Chiefs, which aligns perfectly with that 11-point spread. In my original picks, I had the Chiefs at 10.5 and that’s where I’ll stand pat.
