The Denver Broncos host their AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday afternoon. The Broncos will be seeking their 11th straight win, the best mark by any team in the NFL this season. The Chiefs will be (or won't be) jockeying for position in the 2013 NFL Draft. With 13, they are currently tied with Jacksonville for most losses in the league.
The Broncos' three losses this season not only occurred in the first five weeks of the season, but they all came against teams currently seeking a first-round playoff bye in their respective conferences. Their offense behind Peyton Manning has been consistent, scoring 30+ points in eight of their last ten games. One of the teams to hold them under 30 was Kansas City, who in Week 12 managed to stay within one score before losing 17-9.
With 13 losses thus far, Kansas City has assured themselves a top-two pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. A loss to Denver would give them the No. 1 pick, with their strength of schedule providing the tie-breaker over Jacksonville. The Chiefs have struggled to find steady quarterback play, with Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn each struggling with injuries and ineffectiveness. The lone bright spot in the organization has been Jamaal Charles, who has overcome last season's knee explosion to gain 1,456 yards through 16 games.
