The Broncos are a team that's going to keep getting better. Manning and the offense are starting to gel. Going 3-3 against one of the toughest schedules:
Losing by 6 at Atlanta
Losing by 6 against Houston when Houston was rolling
Losing to New England
And rounding out the bye with a comback against the Chargers on MNF
Now the Bye week, and it gives Peyton and the offense time to gel. What do they do? They come out and stomp the Saints. Although not the saints of a couple years ago, but to not allow Brees and his stable of wide receivers was dominating. The Broncos also put up 530 yards of offense (305 yards passing, 225 yards rushing).
Denver's schedule for the rest of the year:
Besides, Baltimore, this team could end up 12-4 or even 13-3. This all barring there are no injuries to key players. But this team is improving every week and have shown they can hold a commanding lead as well as dig themselves out of a major hole. Peyton arm is getting stronger and has thrown for over 300 yards in 4 out of 7 games. Del Rio's defense has only allowed 7 points in the 4th quarter all year.
Tebow is better than Manning.
Tebow may get the nod in NY. If he leads the jets to a winning record here on out you wont hear the end of it. ESPN and the haters will be out in full force.
Personally I loved Tebow. He did something that Josh McDaniels couldnt, and that was make it fun to watch the Broncos again. So anyone can hate on his stats and fundamentals all they want, but he was the face of the team while Denver won the division and a playoff game against the Steelers.
They should have a pretty decent record considering they play in the weakest division in the NFL and play the 2nd worst division with the NFC South (short of Atlanta). The only one they should maybe lose is Baltimore.
Considering way Baltimore's defense is playing and the inconsistancies of Flacco going into a pass first offense, it could be a winnable game for Denver. Then again it is about 7 weeks from now.
This statement is a little confusing. Thye are 1 game above .500 @ 4-3, and could easily be 2-5. They are like 6th or 7th in a pretty weak AFC, including Mannings old team the Colts, and in a really weak AFC West. They are the only team in that division that has a winning record, but yet you claim they are the best in the AFC? There are at least 6 teams in the AFCwith the same (2) or better (4) record as Denver.
Not saying they can't go aways in the playoffs if they make it, you never know, but the best in the AFC!
They won't lose to Baltimore because they aren't very good, and Denver is getting better. But I don't think they will beat the Patriots if they have to play them in the playoffs. Texans also probably better
I still think it's Dallas vs Denver in The Super Bowl. Call me crazy. But I think the NFC is wide open, nobody is running away over there. Dallas can squeak into the playoffs and make a run. It starts with beating the undefeated Falcons Sunday night.
I'm not a Broncos fan, but I've always been a Peyton Manning fan. Truly one of the best quarterbacks of all time, and it's great to see him establishing himself in Denver. There's a long way to go, and anything could happen. The NFL is difficult enough on a weekly basis that the Broncos could end up below .500, but they could also win out. It'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
I would like to bump this thread.
Denver is getting the #1 seed in the AFC. They were also last weeks #1 in the Power Rankings, and will probably be #1 this week.
Now, would anyone like to dispute that Denver is not the best team in the AFC?
Upvoted you. Good call Millah.
Good team, easy schedule. It's not like whipping the Chiefs at home is hard.
If beating all those teams were easy, how come Denver is the only one to do it?
If you want to look at wins, you have to look at losses as well.

Denvers hasn't lost since week 5 on October 7, nearly 3 months ago. They've jelled and they've won every game in 11 weeks by at least 7 points.
