What channel is Chiefs vs. Broncos on today? Time, TV schedule for NFL Saturday game

The Chiefs took a hit in last week’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. They fell to 11-5, second in the AFC behind the Tennessee Titans, who are also 11-5. To make matters worse, the Chiefs’ 6-5 conference record puts them behind the Titans (7-4) in conference. They also lost head-to-head, so the only chance the Chiefs have to clinch top spot is to beat the Broncos in the final week of the season while the Titans lose.

The reason this means so much is simple. The Chiefs are 7-2 at home while they are 4-3 on the road. Arrowhead’s home advantage is tangible, and while the Chiefs have the talent to beat anyone in the NFL, any home advantage helps in the playoffs where things get weird. We are also in uncharted territory with an 18 week season so it would be helpful to stay within friendly confines.

All of this, however, is moot if the Chiefs lose to the Broncos on Saturday. Denver is 7-9 on the season, but it’s been a tough second half of the year. They were beaten by the Chiefs 22-9 when these two teams first met in Kansas City, and that was a poor performance for Patrick Mahomes. The Broncos had 404 yards to 216 for the Chiefs, but three turnovers finished off the Broncos.

While the season is over for Denver in terms of playoff hopes, there is a lot to build from there. It was widely accepted that the Broncos’ 3-0 start was a mirage caused by an oddly easy schedule, but looking ahead to next season, it is clear that there are several key holes to fill. They won’t have an overwhelmingly impressive draft pick, so the Broncos will have to be smart to address those needs, specifically as a quarterback with Teddy Bridgewater’s 1-year contract expiring and Drew Lock showing signs of improvement down the stretch. . Lock is expected to start against Kansas City.
