Why I’m not buying the Denver Broncos as Superbowl favorites

After a 2-3 start, the Denver Broncos are on an 11 game winning streak. They have the #1 seed in the playoffs, and the best odds of any team to win the Superbowl. However, of those 11 games, only two were against playoff teams (they beat Baltimore and Cincinnati).  Their three toughest games on the schedule all fell within the first 5 weeks of the season, and they lost each and...

Talking on the phone at home while on the porcelain throne? ABSOLUTELY. Let’s...
