After passing New England for the No. 2 seed on Dec. 16, Denver (12-3) beat Cleveland 34-12 last week to put itself in position to earn a week off during the league's wild-card weekend. While a win against the Chiefs will be enough to do that, a victory plus a Houston loss at Indianapolis would give the Broncos home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

With the possibility of securing a number one seed in the AFC playoffs, the Denver Broncos are expected QB Peyton Manning to play the entire game on Sunday. Typically in Manning’s career, the last game of the season was a time for the backup quarterback to make his only appearance of the season. Not this year.

If it's true that most players earn trips to the Pro Bowl for what they did the year before, then Demaryius Thomas and Wesley Woodyard of the Broncos should start making plans to be there in 2014.
The Denver receiver, with 1,312 yards and nine touchdowns, and linebacker, who leads the team with 110 tackles, were among the most surprising omissions from the AFC team announced...
Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt is finally getting some much-deserved attention.
Colquitt was voted to his first Pro Bowl this week after averaging nearly 47 yards on 75 punts for the Chiefs, who have just two wins to show for themselves in an otherwise forgettable year.
Colquitt will be joined in Hawaii by running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and linebackers Tamba Hali...

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer They are 16-point favorites against a team tied for the worst record in the league. With each and every victory over the span of a 10-game winning streak, their once-narrow path to the Super Bowl has grown as wide as an eight-lane highway.
But think you'll catch the Denver Broncos looking past the Kansas City...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel knows that there's a possibility he will be putting on a Chiefs uniform for the very last time when he suits up for the final 2012 game at Denver on Sunday.
"I haven't been told anything," Cassel told FOXSportsKansasCity.com after Thursday's practice. "But it's a long off-season and I'm sure there...
The Denver Broncos have Manning and Champ, but their AFC dominance begins with Von, Clady and Koppen in the trenches.
Despite all of the uproar in Kansas City, there’s a chance the Chiefs could keep general manager Scott Pioli after this season, according to Don Banks of SI.com.
The general consensus among the league sources I interviewed was that the high level of fan unrest in Kansas City would probably lead Chiefs owner Clark Hunt to make the personally difficult decision to replace general...

With Black Monday on the horizon in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs could be in line for a change at General Manager. Should that occur who are the guys that might fill that void for the struggling AFC West franchise?
