Week 7 of the National Football kicks off with two AFC West teams with two different streaks.

The Kansas City Chiefs started the season 4-0, but they have dropped their last two games. The Colts were able to silence the Chiefs offense, holding them below 20 points for the first time since Week 12... of 2017. Last week, the Texans took a different approach, with their offense taking the focal point in their victory. With the Raiders close behind, the Chiefs would like to get a victory and re-establish themselves as one of the top teams in the NFL.

The Denver Broncos, meanwhile, are coming into this week riding a two-game win streak. Their victories came against two struggling teams, the Chargers and Titans, but it gives them life after a 0-4 start. The Broncos defense has been stingy as usual, and their offense is driven by a dominant rushing attack led by Phillip Lindsay. They will look to exploit a weak Chiefs defense in hopes to closing the gap in the division.
