This is the kind of primetime showdown that's going to have people talking throughout the rest of the week. Come Thursday night, the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs will get things for Week 6 going, as the two AFC sides will meet in a TNF battle.
Not long ago, Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes were considered two of the best quarterbacks in the game, which would have made this showdown a lot more fun. Now, though, the Chiefs are a powerhouse and the Broncos continue to look worse each week. With that said, is a Denver upset on the way in this one?
Broncos and Chiefs ready to face off for Thursday Night Football
The Chiefs are coming off a Week 5 win on the road over the Minnesota Vikings. In that victory, Mahomes was once again on fire, throwing for 281 yards and two touchdowns. With that victory, KC is now 4-1 on the season, with four straight wins.
On the other side of things, the Broncos and Wilson are 1-4 on the year. In Week 5, Denver had a great chance to improve to 2-3, but they suffered a 31-21 loss at the hands of the New York Jets. Wilson had 196 passing yards and two touchdowns, but a late fumble was returned to the house for the game-sealing Gang Green score.
With the Chiefs hosting this game on Thursday night, they're big-time favorites. No one is giving the Broncos a chance to come out on top, but you never know what might end up happening once Wilson takes the field. Mahomes will be ready to put on another show, though.
