The hottest team in the NFL travels to Denver to take on their division rivals on Tuesday morning. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match starting from 10:20am AEST.

Patrick Mahomes sat behind Alex Smith for an entire season. What he learned has been on show in the first three weeks of the 2018 season and it is impressive.

Mahomes has thrown for 13 touchdowns to nine different players and zero intercepts, passing Peyton Manning who had 12 through three games. His 900 yards and a QB rating of 137.4, put him in the elite quarterback class of 2018.

The Chiefs have more options on offense, than an all-you-can-eat buffet. Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and Kareem Hunt will have defenders’ heads in a spin. You double up on one guy and someone else is left wide open.

They do struggle on defense and have leaked 92 points across the three games. However, if they can score 45 on offense, then it won’t matter.

The Broncos are solid on defense and will make the Chiefs work for every point. Linebackers, rookie Bradley Chubb and sack-machine Von Miller will be out for blood in this heated division rivalry.

Look for Aussie Adam Gotsis, lining up on the right edge of the defensive line.

The Broncos offense got the job down in week one and two, with come from behind victories, so they are no slouch to a tight contest.

Expect them to run the ball a lot at a weak Chiefs defense. With Phillip Lyndsay and Royce Freeman to get most of the ball.
