The game

The Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium in the next-to-last division matchup of the season. Kickoff will be at Noon Arrowhead Time. The game will be televised by CBS — locally on KCTV/5.

The Chiefs have already clinched their fourth consecutive AFC West title — and a ticket to the postseason — with a 23-16 victory over the New England Patriots in Foxborough last Sunday. The team has won three straight games — and needs three more to have a reasonable chance for a postseason bye week.

The Broncos are now 5-8, coming off an impressive 38-24 win against the Houston Texans last weekend. They’ve won two in a row, but now have their backs to the wall: one more loss will drop them out of playoff contention.

The Chiefs are led by reigning NFL MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes. In his second season as the team’s starter, he’s had to deal with injuries instead of MVP buzz. He missed two games with the dislocated kneecap he suffered in the Week 7 victory over the Broncos — and before then, had been intermittently ineffective after his ankle was rolled in the season’s opening game. He bruised his throwing hand when he was knocked down during the victory against the Patriots. The injury noticeably affected his ability grip (and throw) the football.

When these teams last met, Joe Flacco was the starting quarterback. After Flacco was lost for the season with an injury — and the team went 1-2 with Brandon Allen as the starter — the Broncos moved on to former Missouri Tigers quarterback (and Lee’s Summit native) Drew Lock. In two starts against the Los Angeles Chargers and the Texans, the second-round rookie completed 40 of 55 passes for 443 yards, five touchdowns and a pair of interceptions — and a sparkling passer rating of 111.4. But he’ll be operating against a Chiefs passing defense that has quietly become one of the NFL’s best. On the season, it’s allowed a passer rating of 84.7. But in the last three games, opposing quarterbacks have managed a passer rating of just 60.9.

Two longtime coaches face each other in this game. The Chiefs’ Andy Reid is in his 28th season in the NFL — his 21st as a head coach. For the Broncos, Vic Fangio is in his 33rd season in the league but just his first as a head coach. When the two teams met in Week 7, the Chiefs won 30-6. Since Reid’s arrival in Kansas City, his teams have won eight of 13 games against Denver— and they haven’t lost to the Broncos since 2015.
