5. Chiefs vs. Broncos

A few weeks ago, this game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos most likely seemed like a long shot to be on this list, but the circumstances are a bit different.

While the Chiefs were recently crowned division champions again as expected, the Broncos have watched Drew Lock provide an unexpected spark on offense over the last two weeks to make it seem like this game will be closer than originally expected.

Denver obviously has nothing to play for at this point in the regular season other than giving Lock some extra experience to help pay off for the long run, but also the Broncos could still play spoiler role to the Chiefs, who are still in the hunt for a first-round bye.

Watching Kansas City go on the road last weekend to defeat the New England Patriots made it clear they are a team ready to make a deep run come January, but first the Chiefs first need to make sure they defeat the Broncos.

A loss to the Broncos certainly wouldn’t be the end of the world for the Chiefs, but also with the way things are shaping out in the AFC playoff picture, it would be beneficial to earn one of those top two seeds.
