America’s favorite day of the week to watch football has an interesting matchup this coming Monday. In an AFC West showdown, the Denver Broncos (3-3) are at the Kansas City Chiefs (5-2).
The Kansas City Chiefs head into this game with confidence that they will be able to take this win from the Broncos. They are coming off a five game winning streak hoping to make this their sixth win of the season. With a 3-3 record, Denver comes into this game with a bit of a chip on their shoulder after consecutive losses within the past two weeks.
The Broncos know they have to pull off this win in order of move up within the ranking and gain their confidence back. Denver is coming off a hard loss that seemed to be, or should have been, one of the easiest games to win on its schedule. Instead, the Broncos took a loss to arguably one of the worst teams in the NFL right now, the New York Giants.
Hardships For Broncos
Quarterback Trevor Siemian states that the team is having a bit of trouble adjusting as one, but their preparation for the Chiefs is different moving forward to Monday night’s game. Therefore, in order to win games, it starts at the quarterback position.
Siemian states he has “to be better with the throwing situation and getting out of 3rd and longs.” Siemian has been struggling for the past two games with not being able to throw the ball accurately or making plays. Meanwhile, the Broncos will have to face the Chiefs’ strong running game.
Kansas City’s running game is dominant this season, ranking fifth in the league for rushing yards per game. Since the Broncos rushing defense has been so dominant, they rank as the best total defense in NFL.
Both Teams have something to worry about facing off against each other. Kansas City is ranked third in overall offense, while the Broncos are first in overall defense. Kickoff for the game begins on Monday October 30, at 8:30 p.m.
