The Broncos vs Chiefs live stream begins at 8:20 p.m. ET/ 5:20 p.m. PT tonight, December 6 on NBC.

A 13-point spread separates the teams in the Broncos vs Chiefs live stream tonight. The Chiefs continue to play like the defending Super Bowl champions that they are, racking up a 10-1 record and nearly 32 points per game (the second-highest in the NFL). 

That gives them a commanding lead in the AFC West, far ahead of the 4-7 Denver Broncos (who nonetheless rank third). Things could be worse for Denver, though: At least they have actual quarterbacks available for this NFL live stream., now that COVID restrictions have been lifted for three of their four signal callers.

The Chiefs owe a lot to quarterback Patrick Mahomes, one of the top in the NFL this season, with 30 touchdown throws and a mere two interceptions. He's perfectly paired with wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who has caught more touchdown passes--13--than any other receiver in the NFL so far. But unlike, say, the Seahawks and Russel Wilson, the Chiefs don't rely just on an ace quarterback. The team also has a respectable rushing game, with 111 yards per match, headlined by running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

The Broncos at least have Drew Lock back as quarterback, after last week's COVID 19 scare. Still, Lock is no Mahomes, not even close. The signal-caller has just seven touchdowns under his belt--an average of one per game he led. He has, however, thrown a hefty 11 interceptions. Running back Melvin Gordon III is doing what he can to make up the difference, bringing in six rushing touchdowns so far. But the overall math is not pretty: The Broncos give up an average of 27 points per game while scoring just 19.

Denver didn't even get that much the last time they faced the Chiefs, in a 43-16 defeat in week 7. Kansas City was very effective in holding back the Broncos modest scoring attempts while stomping all over Denver's defense. Not much has changed for the two teams since then, and there's little reason to expect a much different turnout.
