Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs History

The first game between these two franchises occurred on October 30, 1960, when the then-Texans beat the Broncos 17-14. Denver would only go on to win one out of the first 20 head-to-head games, including the most lopsided loss of the series, 59-7. Fortune turned for the Broncos from the ’70s through 2000s, winning 45 out of the next 70 games, including a 14-10 win in the 1997 AFC Divisional Playoffs en route to their Super Bowl XXXII championship. Denver won the Super Bowl in 1998 as well.

Kansas City won 11 out of the next 20 games in the 2010s, and took dramatic control of the series in 2016. Between 2016 and 2022, Kansas City won 15 consecutive games against Denver, including a sweep in 2019 by a combined score of 53-9 en route to their Super Bowl LIV victory.

Where Do the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos Play?

The Kansas City Chiefs call GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., their home. As a part of the Truman Sports Complex with Kauffman Stadium (the home of the Kansas City Royals MLB franchise), Arrowhead Stadium has been the Chiefs’ stadium since 1972. With a maximum capacity of 76,416, Arrowhead is the 27th largest stadium in the U.S. and known as one of the best home field advantages in the NFL.

Empower Field at Mile High in the heart of downtown Denver, Colo., has been the home to the Denver Broncos since 2001. Called Mile High because the stadium is located exactly 5,280 feet above sea level, Empower Field gives the Broncos a unique home field advantage because opponents have a difficult time with their conditioning due to thinner air. Empower Field has a maximum capacity of 76,125 for Broncos games.
