I asked the same question yesterday. It's tough, the easier game would no doubt be @ Houston but it sucks that we would be on the road and not be division champs

Division and Baltimore. We match up well I think.

id rather just get into the playoffs.

We've all watched enough broncos historic collapses over the past few years. It'd be nice to actually get in for once.

Yup.....I'm glad Baltimore lost.....because now they will likely be the 5 seed. Not that either game will be easy.....but based on what I saw last night....Baltimore is an easier team to beat than Pitt.

Baltimore's defense got shredded.....which shocked the hell out of me. And Flacco sucks.

Win the division. Both for the sake of pride, and to give the fans in Denver another game.

I actually think we match up really well with the Steelers and Ravens.

First Division title in over half a decade. Home game. Baltimore team that has looked vulnerable on the road.

Also, would take some pretty wacky scenarios for us to both lose the division AND have a good enough record for the WC.

This. I was only bummed about the game yesterday because it reminded me of all those "must win to get in losses" again. If this was week 6 I would have felt ok about yesterday. Now, a collapse is in my mind. It sucks.

I am more afraid of an ultra-conservative approach by Fox and Co during a playoff run than by any team.

The Broncos for whatever reason have largely sucked at home the last few years. This year, they're 3-4 at home and 5-2 on the road.

Gimme the road game.

Division win all the way...I think we can take the Ravens in Denver, but on the road ( even though most of our wins were road games) in the Playoffs is different. We don't have enough of a traveling fan base to take over other stadiums ( tebow buys some though) , and we are a young inexperienced team.

Why am I so terrified that we will blow this thing? Orton axing us will haunt me. I don't think I could handle the long off season.

Because it has happened before. It's why I hated Cutler. It's why I was ready for Shanny to go. It's why I hated Orton and Mcd. We start ok and then can't stand up to the pressure or get a single ****ing win to get in.


I swore it be different now with a QB who steppes up in crunch time. If Tebow and Fox stumble in these next two games, I will become a cutter. i won't recover.

I want them to beat the Ravens I heard Flacco whining that Tebow is getting to much media attention. . . Sorry they aren't devoting more air time to how much you suck Flacco, you unibrowed POS.

This team is better on the road than at home and I'd be ok with a wildcard birth and all road games in the playoffs.

This team bites ass at home.

Because we've epically blown it often over the past few years

Home Game and I'd prefer Ravens or Pitt. Ravens are so hot and cold and seem to play like **** on the road (Jags, Seahawks, last night). That being said, whoever said "to be the best, you have to beat the best" is bang on.

Play a home game in Denver.. maybe the home crowd plays a part in the game.. crowd noise.
Not to mention to a little Mile High 5280 Altitude.

Look at our home record over the last few years. There's been no mile high altitude advantage.

And pray it's not against Pittsburgh or you won't even have the crowd on your side.

Houston is the #2 defense in the league.
