The NFL has decided to flex a bad game out of the Sunday night slot and put a new game in. The league announced that the Week 12 prime time game will be between Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. The Kansas City Chiefs or Denver Broncos will remain right behind the Raiders near the top of the AFC West division standings. The Kansas City Chiefs won the last meeting in Denver last November. Before that, the Denver Broncos have dominated the series against the Kansas City Chiefs with a seven-game winning streak. The Chiefs last two wins were both on the road playing as the underdog. The Chiefs are underdogs again on Sunday as the Broncos are a 3-point favorite. The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos is scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 27, 2016, at 8:30 p.m. ET at Sports Authority Field.

The Kansas City Chiefs have flown under the radar at 7-3 and currently sit atop the AFC West. The Week 12 battle with the reigning Super Bowl champs could be for the lead in the best division in football. The Kansas City Chiefs had a five-game win streak, but that came to an end with a 19-17 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. The Chiefs defense allowed 331 passing yards and a touchdown to Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston. The Chiefs offense had deficiencies in that game that cost them the win to the Buccaneers. Every team has to work around injuries and the Chiefs are no exception. The loss of wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has hurt in the passing game. The Chiefs are having trouble scoring inside the red zone and are next to last in red zone touchdown efficiency. If it wasn’t for the accurate leg of field goal kicker Cairo Santos, the scoring average would be lower than their 19th ranked 22.2 points per game.

The Denver Broncos are also coming in with a 7-3 record. Denver has won three of their last four. Denver had a 25-23 win over New Orleans a couple of Sundays ago. During that game, Denver blocked a potentially tie-breaking extra point by the Saints and ran it back the other way for two points and an improbable victory.  The Broncos played their last two games before the off week without cornerback Aqib Talib and defensive end Derek Wolfe. Talib and Wolfe both returned to practice this week.  Also outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is returning into the rotation from his fractured arm injury. This means the Broncos could field their starting defensive unit together for the first time since Week 2. Even with the injuries, the Broncos are ranked fifth in total defense, second in sacks and top ranked in pass defense. We don’t think that Kansas City has the weapons to win this one against a Broncos healthy team.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field

Chiefs-vs-Packers

Are Chiefs Ready for Challenge of Playing the Green Bay Packers?

While the Chiefs look to turn the page on a bitter loss to a division rival, the Packers try to move on from a satisfying revenge win when the teams face off Monday night. The Monday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs will take place on September 28, 2015, at 8:30 p.m. ET at Lambeau Field. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN. When the Green Bay Packers has the ball, Aaron Rodgers hasn’t thrown the ball all that much. He has only thrown for 189 and 249 yards in his first two games. Also for the Green Bay Packers, Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason, and it’s not certain that Randall Cobb is totally healthy either. With additional passes from quarterback Rogers comes more sacks.

The Kansas City Chiefs has a formidable pass rush, having registered eight sacks. Three have come from Justin Houston, who’s notched at least one sack in eight straight games and had a league-best 22 in 2014. Running back for Packers, Eddie Lacy is banged up and questionable to play. That means that Rodgers may have to utilize the passing game a bit more. The Chiefs corners haven’t been tested with deep passes in the two games against the Texans and the Broncos. The sack total will probably be high, and with all of the great pass rushers for the Chiefs, we see the opportunity there for a lot of problems for Rogers.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Alex Smith is going to have to do more than he has done so far this season. He has still been sacked six times so far this season. The outside linebacker for the Green Bay Packers, Julius Peppers has been great so far this season, and the return of nose tackle B.J. Raji after missing all of last year has already been felt. We may get over 5.5 sacks on Monday Night Football.
