They are also third overall in scoring defense, with only 17.8 points allowed per contest. Running back Melvin Gordon has been ruled out of Week 13 due to a hip injury, but the Broncos still have the productive rookie tailback Javonte Williams ready to step into a bigger role in the backfield.
The Broncos are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight Week 13 games.

Mahomes, however, was not able to pass for a touchdown and was also intercepted once, while finishing with 260 passing yards on 23/37 completions. Still, Kansas City has a wide array of weapons to use against Denver’s tough defense. On the season, the Chiefs are ninth in the NFL with 25.5 points per game and second overall with 402.4 total yards per contest. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are constant threats to embarrass opposing pass defenses.
