Default Broncos looking positively Super after crucial win

It's only the first day of December and winter is still weeks away, but this is the win that should do it for Denver. This is the win that sets up the Broncos to finish with an AFC West crown, the conference's top seed and home-field advantage in the postseason. Sure, there's a month of football still to be played in the NFL's regular season, but Sunday's 35-28 comeback at Kansas City should be the one that clears Denver's path to the Super Bowl and puts Peyton Manning in position to play on the game's grandest stage for the first time in four years.

I know. I know. There's Manning's mediocre playoff record and those pesky New England Patriots (9-3) to contend with, and those are no small concerns. History has proven that. Again and again.
But when I look at the current order of things in the AFC, the list of elite teams starts and ends with 10-2 Denver. There's no one else who seems as poised and primed for a Super Bowl run than this record-breaking Broncos team in a 2013 season that seems to give us a new and impressive statistical accomplishment to ponder almost every week...

I don't see how the broncos getting home field is anything close to a sure thing. That's absurd

I think it is vital to get DRC back healthy. We need him, and actually we really need Julius on offense.

D needs to get healthy more than anything. Pretty much all their tires have blown out at this point.

I probably shouldn't speak for SI as they can be band wagoners to sell mags, but I don't think that is what they saying. However, the Broncos do control thier destiny with 4 very winnable games ahead.

I can easily see us getting lucky with the weather in Denver. That's Colorado weather. Lots of mild, sunny days in the middle of winter. But if we get to New York? Yeah, it's going to require an act of god to get a Manning-friendly day there.

Defense didn't record a single hit on the QB officially. That's not going to get it done in the playoffs. Have to improve or it's going to be another long offseason.

We were without a lot of impact players who will all be coming back, and won. And outplayed them, at their house. I like our chances more than any other team.

I saw a Rahim Moore like whiff on that throw by Smith to McCluster for 28 yards. I don't think anything is a lock.

As long as we continue to draft running backs really high, I can see great things for this team over the next few years.

Look at the box score. Officially not a single QB hit and no sacks. When Alex ****ing Smith throws for 293 yards and 2 TD's against you you're not getting it done.
