Prediction:

Perhaps no team in the AFC is playing better than the Denver Broncos are right now. Not only are they still undefeated, but Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall also have the offense rolling on all cylinders. Too bad the defense is allowing over 30 points a game, though. In their last two losses, the Raiders and Falcons crushed the Chiefs, but that was with inexperienced Tyler Thigpen at quarterback. Kansas City gets a boost with Damon Huard returning under center, although Larry Johnson will still be the key in whether or not they can pull out a victory. The Broncos should win, but given that this is a division rivalry and that it will be played at Arrowhead, the Chiefs have a good chance to cover. We predict the Broncos over the Chiefs 28-20.
