We're back for Week 2 of Thursday Night Football! The Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos, with the game set to kick off at 5:30 p.m. PT on CBS. I believe NFL Network will be simulcasting the game, but if you have a TV, you can just enjoy this on CBS.
This marks the first official short-week TNF game. We had TNF a week ago, but as it was Week 1, nobody was coming in on the normal short rest timeframe. This week, we get to see how a short week impacts two teams expected to do battle for the AFC West title. The Chiefs are a field goal favorite, but Denver has won 12 straight divisional road games the last four years. Of course, Peyton Manning did not look particularly good on Sunday, so we'll see if this Broncos team is nearing a period of transition.
The Chiefs got out of the gates strong in Week 1, jumping out to a 27-6 lead over the Houston Texans, before holding on for a 27-20 victory. The Chiefs took advantage of an interception and a fumble in the win. They face a Broncos team that is just a little more seasoned. Running back C.J. Anderson is questionable, and while he is expected to play, he could be looking at a time share situation with Ronnie Hillman.
Here is everything you need to know about tonight's game.
