This is the first time in many years that I haven't checked the power rankings on a weekly basis. These Broncos are so good that it really doesn't matter to me what some Poindexter behind a laptop has to say about them. The playoffs will determine who is number 1 or 2, etc.
That all being said, the Broncos & Pats are the two best teams in the AFC, and the NFC has 4 legitimate teams that can make it to the Bowl, IMO (GB, SF, Seattle, & Atlanta). There will be no 9-7 team that makes it this year; again, IMO.
This team is a legitimate SB contender, and in the coming month, we will find out just how legitimate they are.
