Lets see whats left in the AFC west.

Denver still has: 2 home 1 away
New England
@Buffalo
Kansas City

Oakland 2 home 1 away (trail Denver by 1 game)
Detroit
@Kansas City
San Diego

San Diego 2 away 1 home (trail Denver by 2 games)
Baltimore
@Detroit
@Oakland

Denver is currently 3-2 against the division, SD is 2-3 Oak is 2-2

Denver is in the playoffs with 2 more wins if one is against KC.

Anyway you look at it, it is the Broncos to lose right now.

Raider fans best hope to compete for a wildcard spot with the Steelers, Jets, Titans and Bengals, good luck with that.

Charger fans can only hope for the stars to align themselves up somehow they get it.




To be honest the only reason I omitted the option of all 3 teams losing all 3 remaining games is the fact that the Chargers play the Raiders to close the season. Because I really do not think any of them can win a playoff game today, maybe in 4 weeks but we already know who the elite teams are and this group has none of them.

The skins are horrible, and they almost beat N.E.
They were right in that game....so I'm not mailing it in for Denver on that one, but should win vs K.C. and Buff.

Agreed, but maybe, just maybe the Pats may have overlooked the Redskins.

That is not possible this week.

The 'Skins are playing the spoiler role now, since they've been eliminated.

Denver......not sure what to say about them, but they're doing more than expected anyway. I can't say the same for the Cowboys.

It's definitely the Broncos division to lose. Even with a loss next week and a Raider win - they still hold the tie breaker. I see Denver winning their last two games and the Raiders missing the playoffs. Hope I'm wrong, but that's what I see happening.

The Broncos are 7-1 with Tebow at QB. They were dead in the water with Orton.

Lots of folks wanted Orton when he was waived, tho...............lol..........

I would say Oakland and Denver are neck and neck. It will be fun.

The Pats D or lack thereof can be exploited...by anybody it seems.
If Denver can play mistake free football, this could be a nail biter.

The Pats defense is vulnerable but their offense is very explosive and hasn't had many off games.
