The Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs have been the best teams in the AFC this season and heading into the playoffs, home field and the division standings could be decided by this game on Sunday, as the two teams played a couple weeks ago and now they will play at Arrowhead Stadium and the west division matchup will start at 4:25 PM on CBS on TV and the game will be streaming live online and on the radio from the NFL.com league website.
Peyton Manning has been having a fantastic season and even though the Broncos lost last week against the New England Patriots after a big comeback, the team is still in great position to get into the playoffs as one of the best teams and now they are heading on the road for the second game in a row against the Chiefs. The Broncos have been the best offensive team in the league and last week they got over 200 yards from Knowshon Moreno but he could be limited on Sunday as he was injured and now the team has a tough back stretch to take care of as the Titans are waiting next on the schedule. The team is ranked first in the league in passing yards per game and 12th in rushing yards and while they are giving up the third most passing yards per game, the rushing defense has been stout and ranks fifth in the NFL and now the team goes up against one of the best and they will have to stop Jamaal Charles to have a solid game on Sunday.
Manning has been playing great at his old age and while he was outdueled by Tom Brady last weekend, the Broncos have the chance to put themselves in prime playoff position with a win against the Chiefs on Sunday. The team has won three of the last four games and they have only lost to the Patriots and Colts this season and those are to teams that likely will be making the playoffs this season. After playing the Chiefs the Broncos have the Tennessee Titans and San Diego Chargers at home and then they finish with two on the road conference games with the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders and those games could be tough away from home for the team, but Manning actually gets lucky, as he is out of the cold weather in a dome and out in California for the final two weeks and that could end up being a big help for the Broncos as they finish the season.
The team is in the middle of a tough stretch of four games on the road in six weeks and the Broncos now have the chance to sweep the Chiefs in division play this season with a win on Sunday afternoon. Manning has 36 touchdowns and is well on his way to 4,000 passing yards this season and he is going up against a tough secondary and defense overall in the Cheifs. Kansas City has lost two games since starting the season 9-0 and those games have been against the two toughest teams on their schedule and now the team is trying to avoid a three game losing streak and two of those will come against the Broncos if it goes to three games.
The Chiefs have been one of the best rushing teams in the league and the defense has been solid, but last week they gave up way too many yards to the Chargers and now they have an even tougher division team to deal with. The game between the Broncos and the Chiefs starts up at 4:25 pm on CBS and the game will be from Arrowhead Stadium.
