Betting Odds

Spread: Chiefs-3
O/U: 42

The Broncos defeated the Ravens 19-13 at home last week. QB Peyton Manning had a rough outing as he threw 40 passes, had no TD passes, was sacked 4 times and threw a pick 6. Denver was saved by a 51-yard interception return by CB Aqib Talib. They ran for only 69 yards on 25 carries forcing Manning to throw more than the team would like. The Chiefs can certainly rush the passer and their run defense has been bolstered by the return of ILB Derrick Johnson.

The Chiefs were 27-20 victors at Houston on Sunday. QB Alex Smith threw for 243 yards and 3 scores (none to WRs) and completed 67% of his passes. TE Travis Kelce was his favorite target, catching 6 passes for 102 yards and 2 scores. The running game never got going however, rushing for 97 yards on 32 carries. The defense intercepted a pair of passes and had 5 sacks. They will want to take care of their run defense first and then apply constant pressure on Manning.
