Not Everyone Picking the Broncos to Beat the Chiefs

The past two week the Chiefs have played the Steelers and Chargers.  Both times, the Chiefs were heavy underdogs.  The Chiefs are again underdogs, by Vegas standards, against the Broncos this weekend.

All the NFL Network experts - Brian Baldinger, Joe Theismann and Sterling Sharpe - picked the Broncos to beat the Chiefs.

The ESPN experts were a little friendlier.


Those two Arrowheads belong to Merril Hoge and Adam Schefter.

Peter Schrager of also picks the Chiefs to win.  And win big.

Chiefs 33 Broncos 20

"The last time Denver traveled to Kansas City," Schrager writes, "a winless Chiefs team blew a surging Broncos squad out of Arrowhead Stadium 33-19 last September. Déjé vu all over again? Sure, why not?

"For some reason, I've been referring to Jamaal Charles as "Jazz" Charles all season. I think it works. I'm hoping it sticks. Look for "Jazz" to have another big all-purpose game in my upset pick of the week."
