Hello Rookie NFL Insight
On paper it looks like we may actually get an entertaining Thursday night game here. Fangio has his Broncos improving every week, but this week they find themselves a home underdog against the high-flying Chiefs. Everybody loves a home dog, but we just can not take Joe Flacco over Patrick Mahomes. Chiefs cover on the road.
Kansas City Chiefs Insight
With Chris Harris likely to stick to Tyreek Hill, there is a chance other guys are relevant here. Look for Travis Kelce to see a bump in targets as the Broncos are 28th defending opposing tight ends. We also would not sleep on Damien Williams: his snap count is skyrocketing and the Broncos run defense is allowing 29 DraftKings PPG to opposing backs.
Denver Broncos Insight
We know the Broncos can run the ball on the Chiefs. This team has been built to run the ball, and Rich Scangarello has done a great job getting his zone-run, play-action system rolling here. We like Phillip Lindsay to pop some big runs, and Courtland Sutton has been the primary target off of play-action.
