Broncos-Chiefs picks: Game predictions for Monday Night Football

Picks and predictions for the Chiefs and Broncos game on MNF.

Who will win between the Chiefs and Broncos on Monday night? Glad you asked because we have the answers right here with the Arrowhead Pride staff picks for the game. The winner will be ...

Broncos 10 Chiefs 19

The Broncos have a bad quarterback. The Chiefs don’t lose to bad quarterbacks very often. Therefore, the Chiefs will beat the Broncos. -Joel Thorman

Broncos 10 Chiefs 24

I think the Chiefs defense has a good chance to get back on track against a weak Broncos offense. The Chiefs offense has always been able to put up some points on the Broncos, even when they were a better defense. I think this is the week things start to stabilize. -Seth Keysor

Broncos 16 Chiefs 34

It's Monday night and the Chiefs have had extra time to rest and prepare. Since 2015 the Chiefs have averaged 29 points per game against the Broncos. During that same time span the Broncos have given up 17.5 points per game against everyone else. Trevor Siemian is playing badly, while Alex Smith is playing great. I've been strong on supporting the Chiefs this season, but if the Chiefs lose this game I may begin to question some things. Fortunately, that wont happen because there is virtually NO excuse for the Chiefs to lose this game. -Gary McKenzie

Broncos 14 Chiefs 27

I don't care if Mitch Morse, Steven Nelson or anyone else injured returns. The Chiefs are winning this game. Good for Trevor Siemian to have 20 career starts under his belt. The shoe is halfway to the floor though. He'll continue to get exposed on Monday. I don't think this is necessarily a get-right game for the Chiefs. Beyond Siemian, Denver has a good football team. This is a mini-bye for Andy Reid and co. We all know what Reid does with extra time. The Chiefs get back to playing complementary football, and a night before Halloween, Siemian completes his transformation into a pumpkin. -Kent Swanson

Broncos 13 Chiefs 31

I'm always nervous about the Chiefs when they are undefeated and/or are getting too much national praise. Well, after the last two games: problem solved. Sitting at 5-2 on top of the AFC after seven games, getting some good players back from injury, on a long week of rest, playing at home on MNF ... that's a good position for optimism. The matchup against Denver is interesting: strength vs. strength (Chiefs O vs Denver D) and weakness vs weakness (Broncos O vs. Chiefs D). KC has the coaching advantage, QB advantage, home field advantage and the advantage of being the better team. Chiefs win, possibly big. -Matt Stagner

Broncos 20 Chiefs 24

Jamaal Charles in Arrowhead Stadium. Kind of has the ring of a revenge night, no? I think Jamaal plays well, and like seemingly every week, the No. 1 receiver will eat up the Chiefs. This time it’s Demaryius Thomas. All that said, I think the defense boosted by the Steve Nelson return gets back to outlasting. For the third time in three weeks the Chiefs are playing a team with their backs against the wall, and I think the third time will be a charm.
