The Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos have years and years worth of rivalry piled up. Most of them are competitive, too.
However, these last six years or so it seems to have been dominated by the Chiefs, because it has. The Broncos have yet to beat the Chiefs in 13 straight tries.
Yes, you read that right. The Broncos last beat the Chiefs in 2015, which seems like an eternity ago. This week, something special could happen, though. The Chiefs, if they beat the Broncos like they are supposed to, could be the first team in the NFL to clinch the playoffs.
With a win over the Broncos and a Los Angeles Chargers loss on Sunday, the Chiefs clinch the division title, again.
This would be special considering all of the hate that went into this season from outsiders. Whether it was the media or fans of other teams, this would be proving them wrong in the best way possible.
The narrative coming into the season was that the Chiefs weren’t going to win the division, or even make the playoffs without Tyreek Hill. Now, on Sunday, they have a chance to put that narrative to bed early, as if the Broncos are a kid excited to wake up for Christmas, only to receive coal.
The Broncos are not having a very good season, and in fact, are in last place in the division, and one of the worst teams in the league. I don’t want to jinx it, but that clinch is looking more and more likely as the Chargers play the Miami Dolphins, who are very good right now.
