A matchup of two undefeated AFC West rivals is looking like a possibility.
The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs will have their first of two matchups on November 17 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Both teams are 6-0 as of right now. The Broncos have the Indianapolis Colts this weekend while the Chiefs have the Houston Texans. Looking ahead to the schedule before the two teams meet, they will each have two more teams to cross as well as their bye weeks. Denver plays the Washington Redskins and the San Diego Chargers with a bye week sandwiched between in Week 10. The Chiefs have the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills before their bye at Week 11.
I believe that there is a really good chance of both teams having a 9-0 record before their showdown. The Broncos’ only challenge before then would be the Colts in Indianapolis. The Redskins are reeling with a banged up Robert Griffin III and the Chargers have some questions. They do seem to be in a good spot but don’t have the necessary steps to defeat Denver, especially since it will be in Colorado. The Chiefs, on the other hand, get the Bills and Browns, two teams that are still trying to find themselves.
And with flex scheduling beginning the week the Chiefs and Broncos matchup, I would not be surprised at all if they flexed this game into a Sunday Night Football game. That might be difficult, however, since the Broncos would play two Sunday Night games in a row playing the New England Patriots on prime time after they play the Chiefs.
With that said, this has a very high potential of happening with what the schedule has beforehand. I can clearly see both teams undefeated before they play, and then only one team can be undefeated. But this will be one great game to watch if all goes well. Then again, football season is very unpredictable.
