The Denver Broncos can clinch the AFC West with one more win or one more San Diego Chargers loss. The 8-3 Broncos will win the AFC West title for a second consecutive year and finish no worse than a No.4 AFC playoff spot, if they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. "No. 1, we don't want to worry about all that," Broncos coach John Fox said. "We want to worry about the Tampa Bay Bucs in all three phases. That will be the mantra when we gather the team back up on Wednesday."If the Broncos are either a No.3 or No.4 playoff seed, the first round of the playoffs will be at home.  If they are the No. 1 or No. 2 seed, they will have a first-round bye and will play at home in the second round.   The Broncos and Chargers are the only teams that have a chance to win the AFC West title.  The Kansas City Chiefs at 1-10 have been eliminated, and the Oakland Raiders at 3-8 can't win despite five games remaining, because the Broncos have a better record against common opponents. The Chargers host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
