Denver Broncos: Huge Opportunity to Clear Up the AFC Playoffs

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are in prime position to make some noise in the postseason. Next weekend is their first shot.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Broncos can clinch a playoff berth this Sunday if they defeat the Tennessee Titanswhich in turn could put the Titans on thin ice if not end their playoff hopes. The Broncos could also clinch at least a wild card spot in the playoffs if the Pittsburgh Steelers can defeat the Miami Dolphins early on in the day. So, the Broncos might have a spot in this year’s playoffs before their game can even begin. However, this brings about an interesting situation if the Broncos are already in. They have the opportunity to clear up the playoffs if they take care of business and defeat the Titans.

I believe that the Broncos will take care of business in beating the Titans. They are a team on a mission while getting John Fox back and starting to slowly but surely get healthy. The Titans have also been inconsistent this season. They looked to be a team on a mission with Jake Locker. But since his season-ending injury, they have not been the same team. This is the Broncos’ chance to punch their ticket and place whatever the Titans have left on life support, maybe even doing the deed themselves and deliver the knockout blow. The last thing the Broncos will need is to allow the Titans to upset them, giving them the motivation to fight for the last spot and get in.

There are only four weeks left in the regular season. The Broncos have all but the playoffs wrapped up. It is now time to make it official next weekend so that they can check one task off their list. There are a lot of items on that list that need to be checked, but it’ll be nice to check off “clinch a playoff berth” from that list.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
