The Broncos (6-5) started their season hot, winning their first three games only to go on a four-game losing streak. Now they have won three of their last four and hope to have put their roughest stretch in the rearview mirror. They enter this matchup after beating the Chargers 28-13 with a strong ground game and tough defense. 

The Chiefs (7-4) were done! Cooked! Finished! That was at least the talk from some national pundits that love to jump on the piping hot takes. You haven’t heard too much from them recently as Mahomes and the Chiefs have rattled off four straight wins. Now Kansas City is in first place in the AFC West. 

Mahomes is just one interception shy of matching his career high of 12 in a season but has been able to cut down on his interception rate recently. He's thrown seven touchdowns to just two picks over the Chiefs' winning streak.  Mahomes will have the challenge this week of knowing that Broncos' rookie corner Patrick Surtain II is lurking and waiting for him to make a mistake. Surtain had a two-pick game last week against the Chargers including a 70-yard pick-six.

Broncos vs Chiefs live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Broncos vs Chiefs live stream is going to be broadcast on NBC, which is available with most cable packages and on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV

The game starts at 8.20 p.m. ET / 5.20 p.m. PT Sunday (Dec. 5) 

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FOX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

Sling TV

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $50 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has NBC affiliates for this game, as well as local FOX affiliates plus ESPN.

NFL Sunday Ticket: This game is not included in NFL Sunday Ticket, as no night-time games are included this week. Check out our How to get NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV guide for more details.

Broncos vs Chiefs fantasy picks and odds

Betting Odds: The Chiefs are 8.5-point favorites against the Broncos. The over/under is 46.5.

Broncos: With running back Melvin Gordan III inactive, that could mean more carries for the rookie Javonte Williams. Williams gained 111 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown last week. Wide receiver Tim Patrick leads the team in touchdown receptions but has just four touchdowns on the season. He's caught only one score over the last five games. 

Chiefs: Like Denver, Kansas city got back to the ground game in their most recent win. Clyde Edwards-Helaire averaged 5.3 yards-per-carry with a touchdown against the Cowboys in week 11, while Tyreke Hill even broke a 33-yard run. Both Hill and tight end Travis Kelce reeled in 70-plus yards through the air. The Chiefs defense is also coming off a strong performance as they sacked Dak Prescott five times two weeks ago and allowed just nine points.
