Denver Broncos players watched as the San Francisco 49ers beat the New England Patriots Sunday night moving the Broncos into AFC's No. 2 seed for the playoffs.  But the Players know they still need to win two more games before anything is set.   The Houston Texans (12-2) presently hold the AFC's No. 1 playoff spot while the Broncos (11-3) hold the No. 2 spot giving both teams a first-round bye if they can hold off the Patriots.   But Broncos players say they are only focused on Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns (5-9) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. "There's a lot of ball left to be played," Broncos receiver Eric Decker said Monday. Decker added: "Cleveland is a very good team.  They beat Cincinnati, they beat Pittsburgh. Those are two teams contending for the playoffs. "Our focus isn't on the bye. It's to make sure we take care of this week." The Broncos are on a nine game winning streak after Sunday's 34-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.  Fox said he expects the team to keep the momentum going against Cleveland. "Right now I know we control our own destiny," Fox said. "But if we don't play our best game this week against Cleveland, it will be all for naught." Broncos final two regular season games include the Browns and the Kansas City Chiefs at home Dec. 30, while the Patriots go on the road Sunday to Jacksonville, and then host the Miami Dolphins for their final regular season game.   The Texans Host the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, and then finish the regular season in Indianapolis Dec. 30.
