The Denver Broncos are a joke of a football team, as the defense still shows up, but we’ve seen the offense throw up on itself enough to know this is what it is. Russell Wilson is stealing money from the Broncos, and it’s tough to watch. The Kansas City Chiefs are first in total offense, first in passing offense and first in scoring offense. Good defense or not, the Broncos are going to give up points. Can the Broncos counter? Nope. Give me the Chiefs in a blowout.
