The NFL wraps up Week 8 of the 2017 NFL season with a huge AFC West showdown on Monday Night Football. The Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos, with kickoff set for 5:30 p.m. PT. ESPN will broadcast the game, with Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden in the booth, and Lisa Salters on the sideline.
The Chiefs are 5-2, sitting atop the AFC West. However, they have lost two straight to the Raiders and Steelers, and scuffling along. They last played on Thursday Night Football, so they have had plenty of rest. The Broncos are 3-3, and have lost three of their last four. The offense is not going anywhere under Trevor Siemian, having scored 16 or fewer points each of the last four weeks.
The Chiefs are a 7.5-point favorite, and I think the Broncos are struggling enough on offense that Kansas City can get the cover.
