@ Denver Broncos
The Broncos were recently defeated by the Chiefs 22-9 in Week 13. In that matchup, Teddy Bridgewater had an atrocious game, throwing for 257 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. One of the interceptions was picked off by Daniel Sorensen for a pick-six. While the air attack didn’t work out, they did a solid job running the ball, totaling over 150+ yards on the ground.
Since that last matchup, the Broncos are an even 1-1, dropping a game to the Bengals last Sunday and losing to the Lions the previous week. On Sunday, Teddy Bridgewater suffered what looked to be a nasty head injury after taking a hit in the third quarter. Thankfully Bridgewater was released from the hospital on Monday, and the Broncos have said he’s been doing well per Adam Schefter. We wish him the best of health moving forward.
If Bridgewater plays or not, the outcome wouldn’t be much of the same. The Chiefs would still dominate, as they’ll be crunching down on film from their last matchup and learn from the mistakes made in the game. The Chiefs’ defense will shine again against them, and the Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs’ offense could light the Broncos’ defense on fire in Week 18. They’ll earn their 13th straight win against the Broncos.
Overall, I believe the Chiefs can win out and finish out the regular season with ten straight wins; however, nothing is guaranteed. As the adage goes, “any given Sunday.” Anything can happen (especially COVID), but the odds are in the Chiefs’ favor. They’ll have to dominate every week to guarantee that.
Do you believe the Chiefs win out the rest of the way with how all three sides of the team have performed through these past seven weeks? Leave a comment down below to join the discussion. Thanks for reading, and have a fantastic day!
