Exactly then Balt is 12-4 and denver loses tiebreaker to NE at 13-3. We NEED. Houston.

That would be the fourth seed. The second seed most likely means we land New England (at home) in the divisional round.

NE could end up losing twice to Houston & SF. I have a feeling SF will beat them. They are a tougher team. St. Louis is a changed team under Fischer. They are not a great team but they are much tougher. Credit to them for a big OT win today.

Denver will win the #2 seed.

While I agree with you to a point, have the Ravens had a major defensive scheme change recently? Because it could still be a somewhat valid point; maybe Peyton just understands what they want to do and has the ability to beat it.

With him calling out the defenses and changes just make the duel between him and Manning that much harder to win.

Not true. Freeman was harassed all day. The Broncos Defense relaxed when we were up 31-13 with 5 minutes left in the game.

Miller, Dumervil, Wolfe, and Unrein all were in Freeman's face. Tampa Bay is 4th in the NFL in sacks given up (Broncos are 3rd).

You're right about getting in Brady's face though. The interior DL is starting to figure it...Von Miller just always gets there first.

It's pretty encouraging that the Broncos are still getting better every week.

1. DT's confidence, routes and ability to catch the ball are getting better all the time.
2. The Defense played great today in stopping the run, although I didn't expect that Doug Martin was fast enough to exploit the Broncos Defense on the outside like Jamaal Charles and Danny Woodhead.
3. Hillman had some nice runs, and seems to be gaining confidence with limited touches, as well.

The Patriots ran it right at Dumervil all day long. The Broncos would obviously be better prepared for it, should they meet the Patriots again...but (like the Chiefs), the Patriots are a good running team (8th in the NFL).

IF that about sums it up.

Just which HOF QB have we shut down with our out of their minds CBs.

When I see us shuting down Brady and company then I will believe it, till then I worry about it.

You seem to forget our OL is getting eaten alive by DT and NTs. Koppen has looked like a revoving door and Kuper does not seem much better. Clady and Franklin about the same.

NE has a great NT in wilfork and they have really upgraded their CBs this year.

They are going to be a force in the playoffs and IMHO our only chance of beating them is a home game at mile high IF manning can train his fans when to be quiet and when to be loud.

IMHO we are a few players away from greatness. Which means we have to get lucky until we get them.

Huh?

They beat them in week 3

I forgot. So that means we have to finish with a better win-loss record than NE...and so does Baltimore.

If NE loses on Monday night, the Denver/Baltimore game in week 15 will have BIG ramifications.

If the Broncos win their last two games and Houston looses their last two which could happen (Vikings, at Colts), we get the number one seed. Wouldn't that be something!!!

So if we beat the Browns and Chiefs we get the #2 seed? Nice.

Well, we are 3-0 against arguably the toughest division in the AFC: the North. We have beat the 3 possible playoff teams from the North in the Ravens, Steelers, and Bengals. With a cleanup of the Browns, we will go 4-0 against a gauntlet of a division.

Breakdown:

Division games (6 total): 5-0
AFC North (4 total): 3-0
NFC South (4 total): 3-1
AFC E/S 1st place 2011 (2 total): 0-2
Total: 11-3

Don't see that happening but you never know, we just need to care of our business!

Me neither. But Minnesot is hanging onto that 6-seed right now, and Peterson is having a monster year. Unfortunately, Houston is good vs. the run and Christian Ponder sucks.

In the final week, Indy might have Pagano back, and that would give them an emotional boost.

One can hope!

I hope Houston goes 0-2, and Denver and NE go 2-0. That way Den/NE would be 1/2 respectively, and we wouldn't face the Cheaters until the AFC title game.

I'm mixed on this. I like where we are right now.

It seems like we would (if we win out) would play NE first at home. I like that, we are are fresh off the bye, get the cheaters out of the way first, keep rolling on through to the SB. I don't think Hou will win a playoff game this year, their D looks soft right now.

I'd still rather not play them at all. They are a bad matchup for us.

The edges of our defense (DEs, OLBs, CBs) are solid. It's the interior of our defense that is average/poor (DTs, MLB, safties).

With Gronk back.....I just don't want to play NE.....ANYWHERE.

I'd be more comfortable going into Houston.

I'm convinced that the winner of the Den/NE divisional game will go into Houston and win.....and then onto the Superbowl.

SF cant even beat teh Rams.

Houston has a much better chance of beating NE than SF does.

Patriots high-tempo schtick won't work in Denver. 2 reasons:


it's really tough to go no-huddle on the road. Crowd noise makes getting the calls out at the line really tough.
Patriots will feel the effects of 5280 much more than Broncos will if they try to play fast. I dare them to try this for 4 quarters...guarantee they will be huffing/puffing in Q4 while we are still fresh.


combine these two reasons with Joe Mays being off the field, DJ Williams being on the field, and I give our D a good chance at keeping Brady & company in check. Hell, I don't even care about Gronkowski. Pitta just hung 7-125-2 on us...BFD. Gronkowski/Herenandez will get theirs, as long as the rest of the team is contained, we will be ok.
