Looking to expand their lead in the AFC West, the Denver Broncos will travel to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for a long-awaited rivalry game with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Broncos have yet to face the Chiefs in 2012 with Peyton Manning at the helm, and will come in to their Week 12 showdown in the midst of a five-game winning streak. Manning has now tossed at least three touchdown passes in seven of his last eight games, and sports the second-highest quarterback rating of his career at 106.2. At the other end of the spectrum, the lowly Chiefs remain one of the coldest teams in the NFL, with seven consecutive losses and a 1-9 record overall.
Along with a 5-1 mark against the spread in the last six games of the series played at Arrowhead, the Broncos are also 4-1 with the spread factored in during their current winning streak. The projected over/under for Sunday's game has been set at 44 points, with the two teams averaging roughly 45 combined. However, each of the last three contests between the squads have finished under the projected total.
Spread: Denver -10.5
Moneyline: Denver -480
