NFL picks, Week 17: Can the Chiefs keep it within 16 points?

US PRESSWIRE

Probably not.

The KC Chiefs are 16-point underdogs against the Denver Broncos in Week 17 so it's no surprise that hardly anyone is picking the Chiefs. I can't find anyone picking the Chiefs straight-up but I did find a few folks picking the Chiefs against the spread.

We talked about the history of the Chiefs against Peyton Manning, whose biggest victory against the Chiefs was a 23-8 score five years ago.

Unfortunately, I don't think this one will be that close.

My blurb on the Chiefs for my picks column at SBNation.com:

Another game that the NFL's schedule-makers probably thought could be a win-and-you're-in game. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, they were the NFL's worst team this year. The Broncos are the NFL's hottest team so they should destroy the Chiefs.

My official pick: 34-9, Broncos

Over at ESPN, they have 12 people making picks, and all 12 pick the Broncos over the Chiefs. Accuscore, the computer predictor, also takes Denver, as does the fans pick 'em.

Over at Yahoo! Sports, all three experts take the Broncos along with the Yahoo! users pick.

Over at CBS Sports, they're making picks against the spread, which means a few are actually taking the Chiefs. Four of the eight experts pick KC to cover the spread, which is 16 points. As noted previously, a 16-point win would be Peyton Manning's biggest ever against a Chiefs team.
