The Kansas City Chiefs visit the Denver Broncos with a new face for a division showdown.
When the Kansas City Chiefs arrive in the Mile High City to face the Denver Broncos, their arsenal will include a new weapon. Former Jets and Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is expected to make his debut in a red jersey after not being active last week against the Buffalo Bills.
Patrick Mahomes wasn’t his usual self in that victory as he failed to notch over 300 yards passing. But in key situations, he delivered the plays that needed to be made to win and, thus, the Chiefs are 5-1 entering Week 7.
Though the Denver Broncos are 2-3, a divisional matchup should not be taken lightly. The Chiefs learned that against the Chargers in a win and even more so against the Raiders in a loss. Heading into Week 7, Kansas City has an advantage over a Denver team that is significantly out of sorts with the number of injuries sustained.
According to NBC Sport’s Mike Florio, there is snow expected in the forecast, a resemblance to last season in December when Mahomes torched the Denver defense to the tune of 23-3. This time the Chiefs will almost certainly have to rely on their running game to help with the conditions.
Thankfully, the way that Clyde Edwards-Helaire played last game with 161 yards on the ground, is a welcome sight with Bell soon to fold into the mix. That said, here are three bold predictions for the Chiefs against the Broncos in Week 7.
