We don't like to get ahead of ourselves, even when the Broncos are sitting atop the division and the conference three quarters of the way through the regular season. BUT ... this weekend the Broncos will clinch a Playoff spot if:
1. Broncos Win or tie OR
2. Miami loss or tie OR
3. Baltimore loss or Tie
And while we're speculating, If the Broncos win out for the rest of the regular season they will take the #1 seed in the AFC, with the New England Patriots most likely to take the #2 seed. If the Broncos drop a game and the Pats win out, those positions will reverse. The Kansas City Chiefs are well placed to take one of the wild card spots, which could result in a week 2 playoff game against the Broncos in Denver.
Only time will tell. And several other scenarios are possible. As we said, we don't like to get ahead of ourselves, no matter how tempting it might be. And it's tempting.
