The Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the NFL, according to Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller, who said this to Denver reporters after the Broncos were shut out by the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday:

Von is often wrong, especially when he’s barreling into Alex Smith seconds after the whistle blows. But he’s not wrong here. I do believe the Chiefs are the best team in football right now even with those two losses. They could lose this game and I could be proven wrong but the Chiefs weren’t blown out in their two losses like the Broncos were on Sunday. The Chiefs lost to a very good Pittsburgh team who has their number and a crazy last-second loss in Oakland on a short week when anything can happen.
The Chiefs don’t have the best record in the NFL anymore - that goes to Philly - but the Chiefs have the resume so argue they’re the best. That’s the attitude the Broncos have to have because if they lose this game they’re in trouble. Being down three games with eight to play isn’t a recipe for winning the division so the Broncos will be VERY motivated in this game.
