NFL Week 17 Free Pick: Take the Under. According to latest NFL trends, Kansas City is 7-21 last 28 on the Under bet vs AFC. Last game: Denver (-10) over KANSAS CITY, 17-9. The Chiefs have gone through one of the most difficult seasons any team could endure. Denver has won 10 straight and is looking for the top seed in the AFC. But while this is a mismatch on paper, Denver has struggled to score against an underrated Kansas City defense. In their last four games against Kansas City, the Broncos have scored just 43 points. The Chiefs actually had a rare second half lead against Denver on Nov. 25, before Peyton Manning threw two late TDs for the win.
