There is no doubt that the top game on the NFL calendar in Week 11 is the AFC West match up between the undefeated Kansas City and the one-loss Denver Broncos. The game will be taking place at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, so the Broncos have the home field advantage, but they have plenty to be concerned about.
Start Time: Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET
TV Info: NBC
Point Spread: Broncos -8
As you can see, the Broncos are eight-point favorites over their division rivals, so they have a lot to live up to both on the field and in the Vegas books.
There are those who don’t think the Chiefs are for real, so this will be their “prove it” game and you should expect the Chiefs to silence the doubters.
Denver has struggled greatly when it comes to protecting Peyton Manning and keeping him upright, while the Chiefs have had more success than anyone else in the league at getting after the passer. Of course, there is much more to the game that will affect the result, but the Kansas City pass rush hitting Manning early and often will get him off his rhythm and set up a long down for the Broncos offense and a great day for the Chiefs as they continue their unbeaten streak.
