[WATCH/STREAMS!] Chiefs vs Broncos Live Free Online Broadcast 29 October 2023
Today's Chiefs vs Broncos live stream is set in snowy Denver and it has the Broncos looking to buck a trend. Since Patrick Mahomes made his NFL debut as a starter for the Kansas City Chiefs, he has never lost to the Denver Broncos. That’s a perfect 12-0 since 2017, with win number 12 coming earlier this season in Week 6. But the Broncos are hoping this NFL live stream will be the first blemish on Mahomes’ record against them.

The Chiefs vs Broncos live stream has Mahomes looking to stay perfect against Denver!
This season's Week 6 game is one Denver would like to forget. The Chiefs won that Thursday night prime-time matchup, 19-8. Patrick Mahomes completed 30 of his 40 passes for 306 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while Russell Wilson was held to under 100 yards passing for the first time since 2018. Wilson threw for 95 yards on 13-of-22 passing with a touchdown and two interceptions. He was also sacked four times.
And Kansas City has only looked better since then. The Chiefs enter this week’s game fresh off Mahomes’ best game of the season. He threw for 424 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-17 win over the Chargers. Tight end Travis Kelce reeled in 12 catches in the win for 179 yards and a touchdown while wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three balls for 84 yards and a score. Kansas City’s offense is now ranked 6th in the league averaging 25.4 points per game.
Kansas City’s offense — and perhaps their tight ends’ love life — grab the headlines, but their defense does the dirty work. While Mahomes hit four different receivers for touchdowns last week, the K.C. defense had four different players come up with sacks in the win. Now the Chiefs’ defensive unit has the fifth-highest sack total in the NFL (22) and they allow the second-fewest points per game on average (15).
Unfortunately for Denver, the Broncos (2-5) continue to struggle in the Russell Wilson era, an era where the team has not won back-to-back games since Week 2 and 3 of last season. Despite the team’s numbers, Wilson is individually having a bounce-back season. He’s thrown for 13 touchdowns with only four interceptions en route to a passer rating of 99, a top five rating in the league.
DraftKings has the Chiefs as big 7-point road favorites against the Broncos. The over/under is 46.5points. The weather will be a factor today as Denver is expecting 6-12 inches of snow at Mile High.

The Kansas City Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, meet the Denver Broncos, led by quarterback Russell Wilson, in a regular season game on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2023 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colo.
If the Denver Broncos finally figure out how to beat Patrick Mahomes and end their 16-game losing streak to the Kansas City Chiefs, don’t expect Sean Payton to be the life of the party.
He was surprisingly surly after the Broncos held off the Green Bay Packers 19-17 last weekend for his first home win and snapped a streak in which they’d lost an NFL record 10 consecutive games when leading at halftime.
Three of those blown leads came this season under Payton, who took exception when asked about it during an oddly combative postgame news conference.
Mistakenly thinking a reporter said your team when he actually said this team, Payton retorted, MY team hasn’t lost 10 straight, then admonished the reporter to rephrase his question accordingly.
Payton dismissed the redirected question about the Broncos getting over the hump.
It wasn’t OUR hump — it wasn’t OUR hump, retorted Payton. I’m saying that respectfully — it wasn’t our hump. We’re trying to win.
After making a halftime lead finally hold up, the Broncos (2-5) have a much bigger challenge this weekend when they host the Chiefs (6-1) just 17 days after their 19-8 loss at Kansas City.
Maybe the quick turnaround for the rematch will help the Broncos, who haven’t beaten the Chiefs since Week 2 of the 2015 season and haven’t beaten Patrick Mahomes in 11 tries.
It’s a challenge playing a division rival twice in less than three weeks, Mahomes said, because there’s so much familiarity. They know what we want to do. We know what they want to do. And now, how can each team execute at a high enough level to have success?
Payton relayed during the week that his perfectionist nature makes it hard for him to enjoy success sometimes and also leads to him snapping at reporters or chewing out his coaches like he did Sunday.
When he and his family went out to dinner to celebrate the big win, Payton said he found himself circling the restaurant parking lot asking himself, All right, why can’t I be happy?
Well, you’re searching for the perfect game, and so I’m just that way, he concluded. I’m gonna wear my emotions on my sleeve.
Like it or not, when he accepted owner Greg Penner’s $100 million over five years, the broken Broncos became Payton’s team and the long losing streak to the Chiefs became his problem to solve.
Kansas City has won the West seven straight seasons and already has a three-game lead over the second-place Raiders this year.
Mahomes is an astonishing 16-0 on the road in the division over his career and on Sunday will seek to become the first quarterback in league history to beat an opponent 12 times without a loss.
If Mahomes makes it a dirty dozen, the Broncos would tie the Rams’ futility against the 49ers from 1990-98 for the second-longest losing streak to one opponent in history and inch closer to the record 20 consecutive losses by the Bills to Miami during the 1970s.
The Chiefs’ second-leading rusher behind Isiah Pacheco happens to be Mahomes, who has 214 yards on a whopping 6.5 yards per attempt this season. There are plenty of reasons for that success, beginning with his uncanny internal clock to know when to tuck and run, and his vast knowledge of the pass routes, which help him know where to run.
I’m always looking to throw first knowing the guys are faster than me and can make the big plays, Mahomes said. And then whenever I run, I run scared, and try to get the first down and get out of bounds as fast as possible.
Nobody has figured out a way to slow down Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who is coming off a 12-catch, 179-yard effort in last week’s win over the Chargers. The Broncos even tried to rotate cover ace Patrick Surtain II onto him two weeks ago, and Kelce still had nine catches for 124 yards.
Maybe we see a little more of that, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. Teams are taking and putting good players on Travis, or doubling him, but he and Patrick have a unique chemistry there.
The Broncos have held the Chiefs to 19 points and the Packers to 17 after allowing a whopping 36.2 over the first five weeks.
They’re playing good football, Reid said, crediting Payton with shaking up the roster and defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, formerly a Broncos head coach, for making effective adjustments. They know how to maneuver. They’ve done a good job.
With Broncos safety Kareem Jackson serving the first week of his two-game suspension for a vicious hit on Green Bay tight end Luke Musgrave, PJ Locke is expected to get his first start in his 51st career game. He made the game-sealing interception in the closing minutes Sunday after Jackson was disqualified for his fifth illegal hit of the season.
Kansas City (6-1) has not lost since dropping the season opener to Detroit. The Chiefs rolled over the Chargers 31-17 last week, picking up their second consecutive win over a divisional opponent. QB Patrick Mahomes balled out yet again, accumulating 424 yards through the air with four TDs and a pick.
NFL followers may be getting sick of all the Taylor Swift coverage, but if you're a Chiefs fan, you want to continue to see the music star supporting Travis Kelce. The tight end had 12 catches for 179 yards and a touchdown last week, as Kelce is averaging 108 yards receiving per game when Swift is watching on in the stands. When his love interest hasn't been there, he has averaged 46.5 per game.
Denver snapped a two-game losing streak last week, picking up a 19-17 win over Green Bay. The run game was effective for the Broncos, as Javonte Williams had 82 yards on 15 carries, and Jaleel McLaughlin added 45.
QB Russell Wilson was fine against the Packers. He didn't turn the ball over, however, it was his third straight game without hitting 200 yards passing. If the Broncos hope to take down Mahomes and the Chiefs, the passing game has to be better.
