Chiefs are facing a Broncos offense that is not playing very well

The Denver Broncos offense has been bad. We said that last week about the Oakland Raiders who proceeded to put up 31 points on the KC Chiefs so I can’t talk too much trash but they haven’t put up more than 16 points since September and they’re coming off a shutout to the Chargers. This stat here shows what their last month has been like.

The Chiefs are averaging 29 points per game which is good for second in the NFL. They’ve had one clunker offensively and that’s the Steelers game where they put up 13 points. In every other game they’ve put up at least 24 points.

The difference is that Denver is probably the best defense the Chiefs will face this year. The Broncos haven’t given up more than 26 points in a game this season. They are the ninth ranked scoring defense in the NFL right now at 19 points per game.

I have to caution getting too excited about seeing Denver’s awful offense because we all watched the Chiefs defense the past two weeks, right? The one that gave up a gazillion yards to Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown and let the Raiders put up 31 on them? Yeah, I remember them, too.
