We all know turnovers are important. They are a key to every single game in the NFL because they tie closely to winning. You win the turnover battle, you often win. You lose it, you often lose.
For example, Andy Reid is 100-22 in his career when winning the turnover battle. I’ll take those odds any day of the week.
The same can be said of the Broncos. Much of their success comes from the defense and the turnovers they’re able to create.
This stat shows this one is all about turnovers:
Takeaway stat: The Chiefs are 6-0 this season when win turnover battle. The Broncos have won 28 straight games when win it. @DenverChannel— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) November 27, 2016
On paper it doesn’t look like either offense will score very much, which will make the short fields created from turnovers even more important.
The Chiefs have historically been great a this under Andy Reid. They need to win the turnover battle - maybe by more than one - to beat the Broncos on Sunday Night Football.
