NFL Picks Week 13: Denver Broncos Vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Denver Broncos (3-8) will face a stiff test against the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4). The Chiefs' offense has emerged strongly over the last couple of weeks; quarterback Matt Cassel and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe have turned into one of the top QB-WR connections in the league. But the Denver Broncos will also counter with their QB-WR duo of Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd. Watch the balls dart through the air on Sunday afternoon. How will this turn out?

Prediction: Chiefs 27, Broncos 24

The Broncos would like nothing more than to beat up on Kansas City again, but this time they will be on the road. As Mile High Report points out, the Broncos have not fared well in KC during December. If Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones can put the rushing game in high gear (which they were unable to do in the previous game), Denver will be in for a long day. And Josh McDaniels will feel even more pressure with the Sword of Damocles dangling over his head.
