Here's why:

Essentially, their pass protection is still shaky, and this could lead to Manning making mistakes in the playoffs.

Yes this could also lead to Mannning playing a physical defensive team and get injured.

This article means nothing. Manning has the highest completion % or his career. 4000 yards, 31 TDs and only 10 picks. His team is headed for a first round bye in the playoffs and his defense is playing much better than it did early in the season. Denver is certainly a threat to win it all.

NEXT!

I agree Mondo. I guess there are some Broncos haters here.

In the words of the immortal Bill Parcells, "you are what your record says you are..."
and the Broncos record of 11-3 puts them at the second seed in the AFC.

Sounds pretty good to me.

All doctors who have a knowledge of Peyton's condition have made it clear that he's at no more risk of getting injured than any other QB in the NFL.

And that "article" was one random fan's opinion. Yeah, that's a good source to use when judging a team.

The Patriots and Broncos are the two best teams in the AFC in my opinion.

Yeah, sure the Broncos pass protection is shaky.
There are 32 teams in the NFL.
26 quarterbacks have been sacked more than Peyton Manning.
Aaron Rodgers has been sacked the most (45) while Manning has only been sacked 21 times.
I think just about every team in the league is envious of Denver's pass protection.
