The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs have been in a big rivalry for a long, long time. Before the last five or so years, the rivalry was very competitive, and would usually go back and forth.

However, as many of you know, the Broncos haven’t beaten the Chiefs in a long time. In fact, the Chiefs have won 13 straight against Denver. So it’s safe to say this rivalry hasn’t been what we have known it to be in its entirety.

It could be the same too come Wednesday. The Chiefs are one of the best teams in the league with one of the best offenses in the league. The Denver Broncos are not a very good team and have a terrible offense.

I think head coach Nathaniel Hackett knows that it could get worse this week against the Chiefs. His latest comments would suggest that, anyways.

“In the end, we’ve got to score points,” Hackett said. “And when you’re playing the Kansas City Chiefs, you know you got to score a lot of them. So we got to find a way to put some points up.”

Yeah, the Chiefs do score a lot of points. They in fact average 29.2 points per game, which is the most in the league. The Broncos, well they average 13.8 points per game, which is last in the NFL.

It could get worse on Sunday. But, if I’m Hackett, I wouldn’t worry about the offense and trying to score points with the Chiefs, because that just isn’t going to happen.

I’d be more worried about if my defense, the only bright spot on this team, can stop their offense. That seems to be the Broncos’ only hope of having at least a slim chance at being in the game.
