On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will play the Denver Broncos in a Week 8 game at Empower Field in Denver — just two weeks after the two teams faced each other in Kansas City. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 p.m. The contest will be carried on CBS — locally on KCTV/5.

In Week 6, the Chiefs opened as 10.5-point favorites over the Broncos, although they ended up beating that spread by only a narrow margin in their 19-8 victory. Then in Week 7, Kansas City began the week as a 5.5-point favorite over the Los Angeles Chargers, winning that game 31-17 on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Broncos came home from Kansas City to host the Green Bay Packers. They opened Week 7 as a 2-point underdog — but ultimately defeated the Packers by that same margin in a 19-17 victory.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Kansas City has opened as an 8.5-point favorite in Sunday’s rematch.
