4. Kansas City Chiefs
The electric Kansas City Chiefs team finds itself on this list once again due to the nature of their upcoming game. The Denver Broncos are coming to town and that almost always means a hard-fought game is in store. It was only a few weeks ago that the Broncos pushed the Chiefs to the limit but eventually fell 27-24.
If this next game is even close to being as dramatic as the first, fans are in for a treat. Heated divisional games are always enjoyable to watch, but they are even better when the teams have the talent to fuel the rivalry.
After a big prime time win over the Bengals last week, the Chiefs are sitting atop the AFC West with a 6-1 record. The Broncos are currently in third place with a 3-4 record but could be right back in the thick of things with a win this week. On the other hand, if the Chiefs dispatch of the Broncos once again, their season is essentially a wash.
Arrowhead Stadium will be rocking and young quarterback Patrick Mahomes will have yet another opportunity to set the NFL world ablaze with an insane play (like his left-handed throw against the Broncos in the previous meeting).
A win would help keep the Chiefs season rolling along, improving them to an AFC best 7-1 record. And while a loss is not overly damaging to their season prospects, it is never fun to lose to a division rival.
