The game we've all been waiting for! The undefeated Kansas City Chiefs (9-0) travel to Denver to play the Broncos (8-1) in a battle to determine the top dog in the AFC West...and a possible #1 seed in the playoffs.
Many think that the Chiefs are the story of the first half of the season. Last year they were 2-14 and now they are 9-0! How did they do that? New coach Andy Reidand new QB Alex Smith joined star RB Jamaal Charles and the rest, as they say, is history. And don't forget the Chiefs defense as LB Justin Houston’s 11 sacks are third best in the NFL. The Chiefs are one win away from the best start in franchise history.
Others say that Broncos QB Peyton Manning is the story of the first half of the season, remaining on pace to set NFL single-season records in both passing yards and TDs. His talented targets WR Demaryius Thomas, WR Wes Welker and TE Julius Thomas make it super difficult for any team to slow them down.
