The Denver Broncos will play the Kansas City Chiefs in a massive game in Week 13 of the NFL 2013 season on Sunday. The Broncos managed to defeat the Chiefs in Denver a few weeks ago, and now they must repeat that achievement on the road to gain sole control of the AFC West division. The big game will start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
When the Broncos defeated the Chiefs a few weeks ago, both teams moved to 9-1 and things were set for an intriguing run in. Since then both teams have fallen into some trouble, and last week they both lost games to leave them locked together on 9-2.
That means it is likely that the winner of today's game will take the division title. However, both teams are almost certainly guaranteed a spot in the postseason, with the second place team likely to make it through the Wild Card slots due to their impressive record. However, there are still a number of weeks of the regular season remaining and anything can happen.
The Broncos looked in complete control last week at half time in their game against the New England Patriots. But somehow they managed to blow a huge lead to allow the Patriots back into the game. With things locked at 31-31 the game moved into overtime, and it looked like the game was heading for a tie, when a mix-up from a Patriots' punt saw the Broncos give away possession right in front of their own posts. The Patriots saw out the win with a field goal, to see them complete an amazing turnaround in one of the most dramatic games of the season to date.
The Broncos are still ranked first in the NFL for total points scored per game (39 points on average), and total yards gained per game (451.5 yards on average), as well as pass yards per game (330.5 yards on average).
Peyton Manning has been the man bullying opposition defenses through the season, and he comes into this game with a record of 305 of 445 for 3,722 yards and an amazing 36 touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs have lost two straight games, having been defeated 17-27 by the Broncos in Week 11, they slipped to a tight loss against the San Diego Chargers last week 38-41.
They were given a reprieve thanks to the Broncos surprise loss to the Patriots, and that keeps them tied with Denver on 9-2. That means if they can win today they can take command of the division, and potentially steal the title away from the Broncos.
