This is the first of two season meetings between the divisional rivals, and the latest since the Christmas Day massacre of 2016 — a 33-10 Broncos loss that mathematically ended their playoff hopes.
With tilts against the NFL-best Eagles and thorn-in-the-side Patriots to follow, it’s absolutely paramount that Denver avoids dropping under .500 if they want any shot at returning to the playoffs
Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is having a solid season. He leads the league with a 72.4 percent completion rate and he has the weapons (Tyreek Hill, Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce) to continue his rate against the Broncos, especially since the Broncos have already allowed 11 touchdown passes after giving up only 13 all of last season.
The Broncos (3-3) will welcome the return of linebacker Shane Ray, who missed six games due to a broken left wrist. His return is also in his hometown of Kansas City, which will certainly add to his inspiration.
