Both teams are coming into the game 1-0. Denver was able to suffocate the Baltimore Ravens in a 19-13 victory despite not scoring an offensive touchdown. Peyton Manning was mediocre at best but the defense picked him up, sacking Joe Flacco twice and scoring on an Aqib Talib pick-six.
Kansas City was able to beat up on the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium, winning 27-20. The Chiefs were explosive early on, with Alex Smith throwing for 193 yards in the first half to stake them to a 27-9 lead at the break. Travis Kelce was the star of the show with six catches, 106 yards and a pair of touchdowns including a 42-yard jaunt in the first quarter.
The Chiefs are favored by a field goal at home but have not beaten the Broncos since Peyton Manning joined the team in 2012. Since then, Kansas City has not been able to topple Denver, which has won the AFC West in each of the past four seasons. On the injury front, Broncos running back C.J. Anderson is questionable with a toe injury. Kansas City has 14 players listed on its injury report, but all are probable and are expected to play.
