The game

The Denver Broncos host the Kansas City Chiefs for a Week 7 matchup on Thursday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) Thursday. The game will be carried by Fox and NFL Network — locally on WDAF/4.

The defending AFC West champions arrive in Denver with a record of 4-2 following two consecutive home losses — most recently a 31-24 defeat at the hands of the Houston Texans. The Broncos are 2-4 after two straight victories: a 20-13 road win against the Los Angeles Chargers and a 16-0 defeat of the Tennessee Titans at home.

The Chiefs are led by the reigning NFL MVP: quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Despite being hobbled by a sore ankle ever since Week 1, he leads the NFL in passing yards with 2,104 and is second only to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in passer rating. He’s thrown 14 touchdown passes and threw his first interception of the season only last week.

Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco — named MVP of 2012’s Super Bowl XLVII after leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers — is in his first season with the Broncos. He’s thrown for 1,435 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions in 2019.

Kansas City head coach Andy Reid is in his seventh season as Chiefs head coach and needs one more victory to reach 200 regular-season wins, which would tie former Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer for seventh on the all-time list. Broncos coach Vic Fangio is in his first season as an NFL head coach after 19 seasons as a defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears. Under his leadership, seven of his defensive units have been among the top ten in points allowed — most recently the 2018 Bears defense, which led the league.

The Chiefs have won the last seven games against the Broncos — most recently a 30-23 victory in Week 8 of 2018 at Arrowhead Stadium and last season’s Week 4 game in Denver, which the Chiefs won 27-23. The Chiefs, however, have lost during their last two appearances on Thursday Night Football, while the Broncos have won their last two TNF games.
