The Broncos will take on the Chiefs at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023 at 11 a.m. MT.
After parting ways with Nathaniel Hackett, the Broncos (4-11) head to Kansas City with Interim Head Coach Jerry Rosburg now leading the team. Against the Chiefs (12-3), Rosburg and the Broncos will have an immense challenge on their hands. Kansas City has reeled off eight wins in their last nine games. The last time these two teams met, the Broncos nearly came back from a 27-0 deficit but came up just short after forcing Patrick Mahomes into a season-high three interceptions. For Denver to again have a shot against the Chiefs, stars like cornerback Pat Surtain II and safety Justin Simmons will have to come up big and press Kansas City into empty possessions.
On the flip side, Denver's offense will work to recreate its scoring outburst from the previous game vs. the Chiefs; the Broncos' 28-point output was their best of the season. In that game, quarterback Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns and ran for 57 yards before exiting the game with a concussion. Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy also had a career day with three touchdowns, and his improved consistency in recent weeks has helped spark Denver's offense. But against the likes of defensive tackle Chris Jones and defensive end Frank Clark, the Broncos' offensive line will have to hold up better than it did in the last three weeks, a span in which it allowed at least six sacks per game.
OUT: OLB Randy Gregory (knee - placed on IR), T Calvin Anderson (ankle), TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring - placed on IR)
QUESTIONABLE: WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle), OLB Baron Browning (back), DT D.J. Jones (knee), WR Kendall Hinton (hamstring)
