Broncos Take 2 Game Lead in AFC West

Posted on: November 16, 2008 8:30 pm

(I have posted this on the Broncos Team page as well)

The Broncos are 6-4 after the win against the Falcons and have a two game lead over the Chargers (4-6) who lost a close one to the Steelers.  I think if we go 4-2 over the next six games or 3-3 if the last win is against the Chargers we win the division.  What is your projection over the next six games?

Week 12 OAK @ DEN

Week 13 DEN @ NYJ

Week 14 KC @ DEN

Week 15 DEN @ CAR

Week 16 BUF @ DEN

Week 17 DEN @ SD

I think if we go 3-3 that still forces the Chargers to win out and that's going to be tough.

Broncos Take 2 Game Lead in AFC West

Well after the end of week 15 the Broncos still have a two game lead over the Chargers.  The Broncos could have clinced the AFC West with a win or a Chargers loss but niether happened.  The Broncos had a tough game on the road against the Panther and lost 10 to 30.  The Chargers had a nice come from behind victory and actually one the game in the last few ticks of the clock.  A good on side kick near the end of the game leading to a TD.  The Chiefs kicker had a shot with a 50 yard FG with seconds left but just couldn't get it to go.

So back to where we started 4 weeks ago.  The Broncos can clinch the division with one win in the last two games or any loss by the Chargers.  Week 16 the Broncos have the Bills at home while the Chargers travel to Tampa Bay.  If the Broncos were to lose and Chargers win, then it would come down to a winner take all game in Week 17 as the Chargers host the Broncos.

Well the loss to the Raiders made it a race again, but the Chargers couldn't capitalize so its still a two game lead.  Both teams have difficult matchups next weeks.  Jets looked good against the Titans.  I hope this isn't a repeat of the NE game.

Broncos Take 2 Game Lead in AFC West

I agree with the 3-3 projection, for a playoff spot.  Win 3 and we are in.  For SD to get in they most likley will have to win min. 5 games and I don't see that happening. 

Look out Cutler if that is the case there D will be blitzing every down and looking for blood. 

Playoffs are right around the corner, get everyone healthy and there will be some playoff wins. 

Hillis is a better fit than selvin young in my opinion.

Broncos Take 2 Game Lead in AFC West

JC.  I'm certainly optimistic and after 2 wins in a row and I may have let my emotions get the best of me.  Maybe that's a shame, its' not like we ran off 10 in a row like the TEN or are sitting pretty at 9-1 like the NYG but I like our odds.  I think the Broncos have the same record at the Colts which in the past several years I would have been very pleased with.  I don't know what the expect against the Jets, that game has me baffled.  Do we get the Jets team that showed up against New England or Oakland?  One thing for sure, its going to be an interesting ride for the next six weeks.  - Boozers

Cats2.  I gave the Chargers the benifit of the doubt so to speak.  My point was even if they go 4-2 the Denver Broncos only have to go 3-3 to win the division.  The Broncos may not have anything to play for and be resting the starter in Week 17, so I gave that game to the Chargers.  With the number of injuries this year it just make since to take a game off if you can. 

Defense is playing better and it looks like Champs close to coming back so I'm optimistic.  Thanks for the comments. - Boozers.

The Chargers are 4-6, so what makes you think they will even win 3 more games?  The Colts are playing well so that's not an easy game.  The Chiefs almost beat them at home, the Falcons with Turner looking for a little revenge.  There's three games they could lose easy

I say they go 3-3 and the Broncos win the division by 2 games.
