On Saturday, the City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will try to extend his winning run in Colorado. Mahomes will make his fifth career start for the Broncos, who have won their last four games in Denver.
According to Emmanuel Morgan of the New York Times, the Chiefs will cover a 10-point spread. If the Broncos are unable to win, a win by the Chiefs would guarantee them the second spot. However, depending on other outcomes, a defeat might send them to seed No 3 or 4.
Broncos Need To Keep An Eye On The Chiefs’ Defense
Kelce and Hill totaled 49 yards on 5 receptions, their lowest total of the season. It had a significant influence on the offense, which scored a touchdown in the first drive but then decided for field scores for the remainder of the game, scoring only 16 points in total.
It also drove the interception catchers after them to rise to the occasion — which they did not. Byron Pringle, a wide receiver, had 2 drops and only caught one of his 4 targets. Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson combined for only 33 yards on three receptions.
The Denver Broncos have given subpar quarterback performance the entire season, but things have become worse since starter Teddy Bridgewater was injured and put on reserve. Remaining ahead of the opponents and succeeding early-down runs are the Denver Broncos’ greatest chances of winning.
One can never know who may have to take responsibility and handle the handoffs in the playoffs, which is the reason why the Chiefs must continue to rely on the field game, including Gore, Williams, and also pro player Jerick McKinnon. Edwards-Helaire is sitting out this game.
Nick Bolton, a rookie linebacker, had 11 tackles for loss this season, the highest by a Chiefs’ off-ball linebacker since Derrick Johnson in 2013.
