Which Broncos QB would you rather play?

1 of 2

We’re coming up on the final week of the regular season in the NFL, and as is the usual, the race for the playoffs is alive and well. While there are a number of different scenarios floating around, the most important thing to know is this – the Kansas City Chiefs will play at least one playoff game.

Where and when has yet to be determined, but a Chiefs team that at one point was 1-5 will have an opportunity to win the franchise’s first playoff game since the 1993 NFL playoffs.

When we look at all the potential scenarios – an away game against the fourth seed, a home game against the fifth seed, one scenario stands out. Should Kansas City win the division, there’s a chance the Chiefs could potentially face the Denver Broncos, either as the third seed or the sixth seed. A potential playoff game against a division rival, one who in recent years has given Kansas City more than enough grief, is an interesting prospect.

On the one hand, the Chiefs have demonstrated clearly that they can beat the Broncos. Despite splitting the series this year, the Chiefs looked like the better team on the field for most of both games, losing the first matchupmostly due to five turnovers. On the other, of course, Denver is a tough out, even with a stagnant offense. The Broncos boast one of the NFL’s toughest defenses, and there’s bad blood between these teams. Any playoff game is sure to be hard-fought between the two franchises.
