Week 17 – Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos

Sunday, December 31st, 2017 (3:25 CST kickoff on CBS)

In their final game of the regular season, the Chiefs are sitting with a record of 10-5 and rattled off six straight victories. We’ve witnessed the Chiefs being a second half team over the past two years (starting 1-5 in 2015 and 2-2 in 2016) and making a big run later on as a result.

The Chiefs schedule sets up nicely for that to happen again in 2017 and they’ll see the Denver Broncos in the final game of the season. It’ll be on the road, but the Chiefs should hopefully already have a playoff spot locked up (maybe even have the division won too) and the result of this game won’t matter.

I won’t take into account of players potentially sitting out in case of a playoff berth, so if it’s the Chiefs starters against the Broncos starters, that should spell victory for the Chiefs. It’s so weird to just hand the Chiefs victories against Denver considering how badly the Broncos used to beat up on Kansas City for a long period of time.

If it’s the Chiefs starters against the Broncos starters, that should spell victory for the Chiefs.

In fact, did you know that last season was the first time since 2000 that the Chiefs swept the Broncos in the regular season? That shows how skewed the rivalry had been for a long time.

With Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch leading the charge, the Broncos probably won’t be real competitive this year. Their defense is still solid, but the Chiefs managed to put up points pretty easily on them in 2016.

This game will be on the road, but the Chiefs have won their last two games road games against the Broncos without any problems. With a lot potentially on the line, the Chiefs will roll into Mile High with one of their best performances of the season.

Prediction: The Chiefs head into the playoffs with the excitement level through the roof! 28-9, Chiefs.

Standout Player: Tyreek Hill continues to crush Denver. He has two touchdowns through the air and has over 200 yards on the entire day.
