Can the Chiefs win in Denver? Here's a nice stat from Bob Gretz of BobGretz.com (http://www.bobgretz.com/): The last time the Chiefs notched a November victory in Denver, Len Dawson was the QB. No November victories in Mile High since 1974. The Chiefs are leading the division but they need this game very badly. They need to hold onto their lead. To do that, they'll need to win in Denver for the first time in 36 years.
Can the Chiefs offense be productive without Dexter McCluster (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/109122/dexter-mccluster)? This is a big one and hopefully one we don't have to worry about outside this week (it doesn't sound like McCluster will play Sunday against the Broncos). If he can't go, the Chiefs are going to need to find another take-it-the-distance type of player outside of Jamaal Charles (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/34464/jamaal-charles). The Chiefs offense is getting better but not having McCluster -- averaging just a few touches per game -- has been hurting them the last two weeks. The Chiefs will likely be run heavy on Sunday so Charles may get his chance to be the take-it-the-distance guy.
Will the Chiefs run, run, run? The fans answer to this would be a resounding yes. As a fan, I'm hoping KC just hands it off time and time again to Thomas Jones (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/1243/thomas-jones) and Charles. The Chiefs got away from that last week and we saw the result. Matt Cassel (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/1659/matt-cassel) said this week that the Chiefs are going back to doing what got them to this point and I'm interpreting that as a healthy run game.
Will Dwayne Bowe (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/18956/dwayne-bowe) continue the streak? Bowe has caught a touchdown in four consecutive games. If touchdowns matter to you, then this is the most productive four-game streak of Bowe's career (by a long shot). Bowe's supposed to be the No. 1 receiver so I like that he has some chemistry with Cassel. If fans have anything to say about it, Bowe's streak won't continue because the Jones and Charles will be handling the ball every play.

Active doesn't mean he will really play though. I hope he does!!!
