The Chiefs (11–4) will host the Broncos (8–6) on Sunday in a pivotal AFC West matchup.
Kansas City and Denver are currently second and third, respectively, in the division behind the Raiders. But Oakland lost star quarterback Derek Carr to a fractured fibula in Saturday's win over the Colts.
The Broncos can't win the division, but Denver needs a victory to stay alive in the wild card race. Kansas City can still win the AFC West if it wins its last two games and the Raiders lose their final game.
Denver can win the wild card if it wins out and gets some help. The Dolphins, at 10–5, currently occupy the No. 6 seed in the AFC, so the Broncos need Miami to lose next week.
The Chiefs won the first meeting between these two teams in November. Kansas City prevailed 30–27 in overtime.
