Last week: 5 (+0) Record: 10-3 Net points per drive: 0.65 (4th) DVOA: 35.5% (3rd) Weighted DVOA: 37.9% (3rd) 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.
