The Broncos are on an 8 game winning streak, but the Patriots control their own destiny for the #2 seed and if they beat the 49ers this weekend and I think they will win that one. The Broncos have their own huge game this week in Baltimore, which will probably be for the #3 seed if the Patriots win. It looks like the Broncos will be going to Foxboro in the AFC Divisional round for another Brady/Manning game. The Patriots won the first game in Foxboro and they’ll definitely be favored to win the 2nd game.
RB Knowshon Moreno: Rushed for 119 yards (87 after contact) and a touchdown on 32 attempts, 2 broken tackles, caught 4 passes for 48 yards on 5 attempts
LT Ryan Clady: Allowed 1 quarterback hit on 44 pass block snaps, run blocked for 24 yards on 4 attempts
WR Eric Decker: Caught 8 passes for 88 yards on 9 attempts on 43 pass snaps, 2.4 YAC per catch, 1 penalty

BUT NO TEBOWING!
Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, on how the success the team is enjoying this season with Peyton Manning differs from last season's run with Tim Tebow: 'It feels real."
The Ravens haven’t had much luck against Peyton Manning during his storied career and Sunday will mark another match up versus the MVP candidate.
The Raven defense is struggling, in a tight AFC race; the Ravens have fallen out of the number two seed with the loss to the Washington Redskins.
Things get magnified when Manning is involved, but the Ravens defense hasn’t measured...
The Broncos are playing great football and are one of the best teams in the AFC. Can they make it all the way to the Super Bowl?
With only three weeks left in the season it's time to teams to step-up and secure a playoff spot or start looking forward to next season.
After a rough couple weeks I'm sitting at 132-76, I need to step it up.
Here's a quick look at...

So, all year, or at least since everyone realized Matt Ryan was a fraud, Peyton has inexplicably been leading the MVP race. This has made NO sense to me whatsoever. I could not understand how Peyton could possibly be ahead of TB12 in the race. Like did people forget about turnovers all of a sudden? It just made no sense to me. Like yeah, I get it media, Peyton is such a nice guy...

Yesterday, we jumped into the Broncos / Patriots talk with a quick examination of their match-up in Week 5. Now, we’re going to talk about how the game would go if they met today! There is one thing that we automatically know going into any Manning versus Brady match-up; the game will be close, and more...
(Eds: Adds background, quotes. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The last time the Denver Broncos won a game in Baltimore, a baby-faced John Elway was making his second NFL start and producing his first career fourth-quarter comeback.
That was way back in 1983, before the Colts left for Indianapolis. The Broncos are 0-5 in Baltimore since the Ravens entered...
The Denver Broncos' five previous visits to Baltimore haven't gone very well, but they also didn't have Peyton Manning under center.
With the teams battling for AFC playoff positioning, Manning looks to help guide Denver to its ninth straight victory Sunday while winning his ninth consecutive start against the Ravens, whose offense is now being run by one of Manning...
The sense heading into the 2012 season was that if Peyton Manning could come back to anything resembling his earlier years, the Denver Broncos would be in position to have a pretty good season.
Manning has answered any doubters he may have had to the tune of 3,800 yards and 30 touchdowns heading into week 15. And the Broncos have won eight in a row, running away with a division that...
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Almost any time Ray Lewis has lined up over the last 17 years, he has been the best linebacker - if not the best player - on the field.
If Lewis is in uniform Sunday when the Ravens play the Broncos that might not be the case.
With his rare combination of around-the-corner speed and nimble footwork, Denver'...
