The Denver Broncos won their 11th straight game on Sunday and will not have to leave the City of Denver, unless they are headed to the Super Bowl in February. The Broncos will head into the playoffs as the number one seed in the AFC; as a result of their win over the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans loss earlier in the day. It’s quite a story for a team that was 2-3 in early October.
The Broncos will now sit back and watch next weekend as four other AFC teams vie for the right to go to Denver the following weekend. In one wild card match-up, the number sixth seed Cincinnati Bengals will travel and take on the Texans. If the Bengals pull off the upset, then they would travel to Denver to take on the Broncos in the divisional round. If the Ravens hold serve at home, then the Bronco would play the winner of the game between the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens. Whoever comes to Denver on the weekend of January 12-13, they are going to have their hands full with the Broncos.
The Broncos are rolling and that might be an understatement; yes they have Peyton Manning but they also have a defense that is the best in football. In addition, they are running the ball as well as they have all season and that only makes Manning better. People can say whatever they want about who the Broncos have played but the bottom line is this; the Broncos a riding an 11 game winning streak and all three phases are rolling. If anyone is going to go into Denver and win in the playoffs, it’s going to take a supreme effort.
From 2-3 to the number one seed; the road to the Super Bowl goes through Denver.
