Peyton Manning is having a ridiculous year. Not that that is anything new to hear. If Manning continues on his pace, not only will he be the third player to ever win the MVP unanimously, but he will also shatter records and quite possibly be labeled as the best season a player has ever had.Some people may refute the latter of those predictions claiming the NFL is now a pass happy league in which defenses can no longer keep up. That may be true, but the point is moot.None of this, however, matters to Manning. He could break every record in the book. But if he does not win the Super Bowl, the season will be a disappointment.So far in this young season, the Broncos are Super Bowl favorites by a long shot. They have steamrolled every opponent they have faced, except for last week. Last week, the Cowboys nearly pulled an upset and beat the Broncos. Although the Cowboys ultimately lost 51-48 in the fourth highest scoring game of all time, they may have gave some teams hope that they can beat the Broncos. All they have to do is out duel them and play mistake free offense. With that being said, here are the five teams that I believe can beat the Broncos in the playoffs.
