All eyes will be on Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes as he gears up for another league outing on Tuesday night. The reigning Super Bowl MVP is leading the race for this year’s league MVP award. He has thrown for 3,497 yards with 30 passing touchdowns in 11 games this season.
He will once again be counting upon his star-studded supporting cast involving TE Travis Kelce, WR Tyreek Hill, WR Sammy Watkins and RB Le’Veon Bell for support in Week 13. However, coach Reid will be sweating on the fitness of rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire for this week’s fixture. The Chiefs will also be without LB Dorian O’Daniel who is dealing with an ankle injury.

The Broncos are currently on a 4-7 record and sit third in the AFC West Division behind the Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders. They will start with Drew Lock as their quarterback once again. They were without all three first-choice QBs last weekend and utilized practice squad member Kendall Hinton but lost by a 31-3 scoreline to New Orleans Saints.
The Broncos will start their Week 13 fixture as underdogs and will need a strong defensive display to beat the Chiefs. But with Lock returning as their starter, they have a shot at pulling off a surprise win.
