2016 Broncos-Chiefs Week 12: By The Numbers

Share/Bookmark

roby-pick-6_kc

The Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs, who face each other this Sunday night, both have 7-3 records and sit one game behind the 8-2 Oakland Raiders for the AFC West Division lead. The Chiefs have gone 17-3 in their last 20 regular-season games and will look to rebound from last week’s 19-17 Home loss to the Buccaneers.

Meanwhile, the Broncos are coming off their Bye Week after pulling out a last second victory over the Saints in the Big Easy 2 weeks ago when their two rookie Safeties, Justin Simmons and Will Parks combined to block the Saints’ potential game-winning Extra Point and turn it into 2-points for a 25-23 win. Simmons made the block and the ball deflected to Parks, who sped down the left sideline escorted by a phalanx of teammates all the way to the end zone. That was the first game-winning defensive two-point conversion since the rule was adopted in 2015 and Justin Simmons was earned the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week nod for his performance in that game. ​

In 111 meetings, the Broncos are 54-57 all-time against the Chiefs. Denver has an 8-2 edge in the last 10 and the Chiefs prevailed 29-13 in Week 10 at Mile High the last time these two teams met, as the Kansas City Defense picked off Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler on five separate occasions and Sacked the Bronco Quarterback five times.
