Few things in sports are cooler than a snow game. It sounds like we might get a good one in the National Football League this weekend.

The Denver Broncos are scheduled to host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. Kickoff between the two AFC West contenders is set for 4:25 p.m. E.T. on CBS.

According to the weather forecasts, there's a solid chance of major snow in the Denver area on Sunday afternoon.

The forecast could change, but right now, it seems possible that up to five inches of snow could fall. There's currently a 60 percent chance of snow with temperatures expected to be in the low 20s and high teens.

Broncos quarterback Drew Lock is ready for the contest. He described his mindset when facing the Chiefs earlier this week.

"The measuring stick there is that it's a division game," Lock said Wednesday. "That's big. If you're going to look at it in from the heart of Broncos Country, it's even bigger. It's the Kansas City Chiefs. And if you want to look at it from my heart, it might be pretty big too. It's my hometown — and at the same time I can't let that change the way I play. It's just a regular game. [I'll] go through my reads, try to push us down the field to score points. This is just another week this week. We're going to come out and prepare the same way, extremely hard, and be ready to go Sunday like it's any other Sunday."

The Chiefs and the Broncos are scheduled to kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on CBS.
