Chiefs vs Broncos Week 14 Game Info
2022 NFL Regular Season Game
Kansas City Chiefs (9-3, 4-2 Away) vs. Denver Broncos (3-9, 2-3 Home)
Date: Sunday, Dec. 11, 2022
Time: 4:05 p.m. ET
Venue: Empower Field at Mile High — Denver, CO
Week 14 of the 2022 NFL season includes an AFC West showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos.
The Chiefs likely aren't too happy after a 27-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals snapped their winning streak at five games. Standing in their way of victory is a Broncos team that's struggled to score the ball all season long, highlighted by a 10-9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens last week.
Can the Chiefs return to their winning ways after last weekend's loss to the Bengals? Or will the Broncos' offense finally wake up to thwart their AFC West rivals?

Chiefs vs Broncos Prediction & Pick
Back in the offseason, fans heavily anticipated watching Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson trade bombs in divisional rivalry games. While Mahomes has been his usual dynamic self, Wilson and the Broncos' offense have been anything but that, being kept to 10 or fewer points in three of their last four games while averaging an NFL-low 13.8 PPG this season.
With the Chiefs pacing the league with a 29.2 PPG clip, I just don't see this being competitive at all. As solid as the Broncos' defense can be, it doesn't matter if Wilson and co. can't find the end zone.
The Broncos have no business being mentioned in the same breath as the Chiefs this season, so back the latter to win this one convincingly.
Final Score Prediction: Chiefs: 24 | Broncos: 13

Chiefs vs Broncos Best Bet
To understand how long it's been since the Broncos last beat the Chiefs, Peyton Manning was Denver's quarterback, leading his team to a 31-24 win in Week 1 of the 2015 NFL season. Since then, the Chiefs have beaten the Broncos 13 straight times, winning by at least 10 points in four of the last six outings.
With the Broncos' offense being non-existent while the Chiefs' attack is absolutely elite, I see the former losing this one by double-digits.
Bet: Chiefs -9 (-110)
