The NFL World, especially Broncos Nation, is not amused by their lack of consistency. Wilson’s move to the Broncos has not been successful. He has fallen short of the mark all season.

The Chiefs are currently ranked well above the majority of the league. Before they take on the Broncos, Mahomes and Chiefs will face the Cincinnati Bengals.
