Sunday Night Football will feature the clash that all NFL fans have wanted to see for weeks now, as the Kansas City Chiefs play the Denver Broncos. Today's game will decide who takes the lead in the AFC West division, and will have huge implications for the title.
With a combined record between these two teams of 17-1, this should be a fantastic game of the highest quality. Both teams are in the habit of winning, and it will be intriguing to see which side will give way in this mighty clash tonight. The game is scheduled to start at 8.30 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on the NBC network. Alternatively the game will be available to watch online through live stream – free for Direct TV's NFL Sunday Ticket subscribers – via the link provided below.
Peyton Manning has been breaking all kinds of records for the Broncos in only his second season there. Meanwhile the Chiefs have seen head coach Andy Reid completely turn the teams around in a single season.
For most the Broncos are the best team in the NFL so far this season, but the Chiefs are currently top of the division and unbeaten so far. This game will go a long way to giving a clear indication as to where the two teams stand heading towards the playoffs.
Manning and the Broncos' stats look extraordinary; after nine games they are still averaging over 40 points per game, and posting an average of nearly 460 total yards on offense each game.
However, people should not be mistaken, and it is not only Manning who has been amazing. Running back Knowshon Moreno has also been phenomenal, and he leads the Broncos with 521 yards and eight touchdowns.
Protecting Manning will be a vital element in deciding today's game. In Denver's only loss this season against the Indianapolis Colts, Manning was constantly pressured, and interfered with. The Broncos have posted 26 sacks themselves while allowing just 13, so if they can maintain that positive record they could have the edge today.
