Chiefs vs. Broncos: Everything you need to know for Monday Night Football
By Matt Conner
We’ve got a one-stop shop for you to peruse and prepare for tonight’s Monday Night Football match-up of AFC West rivals.
Monday night begins the true gauntlet for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Starting on Monday Night Football, the Chiefs travel to their biggest division rivals, the Denver Broncos, for an important road game for AFC West supremacy. That begins a short week before facing the defensive juggernauts, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and that game prefaces a showdown with the perennial powers-that-be, the New England Patriots.
In short, if the Chiefs can come out of this next three game stretch looking good, they are likely to make some serious postseason noise.
With a win at Denver tonight, the Chiefs will own a two-game lead in the division just four weeks into the season. It’s been a magical year so far for the team and head coach Andy Reid, largely because the team has handled the transition and growth of Patrick Mahomes at quarterback so well. He’s incredibly prepared and they surrounded him with an enviable cache of weapons to ensure his success.
As for the Broncos, a visit from the Chiefs will allow them to cut the division lead early and avoid a serious hole early. It would also be nice for Denver to turn the tide away from the current losing skid against the Chiefs. Otherwise it will be more of the same.
