Week 6 of the 2023 NFL season is starting tonight with Taylor Swift and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football. According to reports, Swift is expected to be at Arrowhead Stadium for the game as she watches the Chiefs and tight end Travis Kelce, who is questionable for the game with an ankle injury. Swift’s attendance will be the main storyline for tonight, but of course, there is also a football game being played.

The Chiefs come into tonight’s game with a 4-1 record and sitting comfortably in first place in the AFC West. Their division rivals, the Broncos, have struggled to a 1-4 record and are in the basement of the division. The Chiefs have beaten the Broncos the last 15 times the teams have met, a streak reaching back to 2015.

As kickoff for the game, scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET tonight, gets closer, the line for the game has moved just a little. It had been sitting at 10.5 points given by the Chiefs, but recently shifted to an 11-point spread, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total for the game is set at 47, with the Broncos +455 on the moneyline, while the Chiefs are -625.

Each week, a group of contributors here on The Phinsider make their predictions for each game on the schedule. We run this picks pool from opening night of the season through the Super Bowl, eventually crowing a season-long champion. We primarily focus on the straight-up winners for our season-long pool here on the site, but we can also make spread and over/under picks.
