Broncos battle rival Chiefs in race to catch Raiders (AFP)

The Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos embark on the closing stretch of the National Football League season with a marquee contest on Sunday against another 7-3 team, the Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos will be well-rested as they are coming off a bye week which helped some of their injured players get healthy ahead of their first meeting of the season against the Chiefs. “It’s a new year and a new battle,” Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said.
