Denver Broncos: 3rd Meeting With Kansas City Chiefs is a Possibility

+Read full article

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If you think you have heard the last of the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs going head-to-head, you might want to re-evaluate that thought.

With playoff spots ready to claim for 12 lucky and skilled teams, there are two teams in which we are certain we will see when the calendar hits January. The Broncos and Chiefs are two of the best teams in the AFC this season. One of which is no surprise and the latter has shocked the fans and everyone else. Looking past the three-straight losses, the Chiefs are no joke this year. Three division losses will probably pit them as the No. 5 seed in the playoffs, but the team that has to play them is in for a battle.

Meanwhile the Broncos, having beat the Chiefs twice and losing only two games to two very quality opponents (Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots) are in the driver seat toward the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Because of how the playoffs are set up, there is a good chance that the Broncos and Chiefs could see each other again. If the playoff picture stands where it is now, the only reason these two teams would not play each other is if the sixth seed in the playoffs ends up winning. But even then, there could be a chance for these two teams to meet up not just in the divisional round, but the championship game in the winner would be awarded a trip to the Super Bowl.

I think having Denver vs. Kansas City III would be as great a matchup as the first two meetings. Both games have been relativity close with the Broncos winning by 10 at home and only by seven at Arrowhead. This game would be played in Denver, so the edge would go the Broncos’ way. But no matter how you look at it, if these two teams played each other with this much passion and drive during the regular season, there is no telling what a third round in the postseason could provide in this historic AFC West rivalry.
