The Denver Broncos (8-7) hope to finish their regular season with a playoff appearance-clinching victory over Kyle Orton and the Kansas City Chiefs (6-9). With Tim Tebow looking to regain his 4th Quarter magic on Sunday, the Broncos enter the game losers of two straight.
With a win or an Oakland Raiders loss, the Broncos will clinch the top seed of the AFC West division. The Broncos sport the league's top rushing offense with 161.1 yards per game entering the final week of the 2011 NFL Regular Season. Meanwhile, the Broncos passing offense ranks as second worst, averaging only 140.5 yards per game.
Overall, the Broncos are the league's lone team to rush for more yards (2416) than they gained via pass (2392) in 2011. The Chiefs, meanwhile, have scored the second-fewest points in the league with just 205, despite QB Kyle Orton averaging over 315 passing yards per game.
