Tonight’s “Sunday Night Football” game looks like quite a mismatch on paper.
The Chiefs (10-1) have won seven consecutive contests and looked dominant in last week’s win over the Buccaneers. Patrick Mahomes threw for more than 400 yards for the second time this season, with 269 of them coming on passes to the speedy Tyreek Hill.
The Broncos (4-7), on the other hand, were a bit of a dumpster fire last week. They had to turn to practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton to play quarterback after all three of their active quarterbacks had to sit out because of COVID-19 protocols. Hinton completed 1 of 9 attempts for 13 yards and two interceptions in an ugly loss to the Saints.
Denver is hoping things will get a little better with No. 1 QB Drew Lock back under center. Kansas City’s defense has looked porous at times and allowed teams to hang around in offensive shootouts. That being said, the teams’ first meeting this season, in Week 7, wasn’t much of a contest. The Chiefs won 43-16, with Lock throwing a pair of picks.

9:06 p.m. — Chiefs punt. Hill can’t quite hang on to a deep ball in the end zone (or maybe he did. . . replay looks like he might have actually caught it). Kansas City punts before the call can be reviewed though, so Denver takes over at its 10-yard line with 10:37 left in the second quarter.
