Chiefs hope to get back on track vs. Broncos

Jamaal Charles plays well vs. Denver.

The storyline
Remember when the Orange Crush at Mile High struck fear with opponents? Yeah, that was long before the Raiders hung 59 on the Broncos a few weeks back. Denver's season is spiraling away, again, and the Chiefs could continue the misery at the expense of their rivals.

Why you should watch
Kansas City's double-fisted rushing attack should have its way with this porous defense. The Broncos have been manhandled at the line of scrimmage and Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles could each top 100 yards. The Broncos, meantime, have the worst rush offense in NFL.

Did you know?
Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has a touchdown reception in four consecutive games. ... Kansas City's Tamba Hali needs one more sack to surpass his career high of 8.5. ... The Broncos are 15-6 after a bye. ... Denver's Brandon Lloyd leads the NFL with 17 catches of 20-plus yards.
