Well folks, as much as it pains me it looks like the playoffs will be going through Denver. At 5-1 they are in the drives seat in the AFC west, the have beat the Chiefs, Chargers and have yet to face the awful Raiders.

Sun Oct.23 at New York Giants Giants
Sun Oct.30 vs. PHILADELPHIA
BYE WEEK
Sun Nov.13 at Oakland
Sun Nov.20 vs. NEW YORK JETS
Thu Nov.24 at Dallas
Sun Dec. 4 at Kansas City
Sun Dec.11 vs. BALTIMORE
Sat Dec.17 at Buffalo
Sat Dec.24 vs. OAKLAND
Sat Dec.31 at San Diego

I can't see them being worse than .500 for the rest of the season, so that puts them at atleast 10-6, but I think its more likley that they finish with 11 or 12 wins.

This puts the Chiefs in a tough spot, to Win the division they will have to play great football, something we have yet to see this year, and to win a Wild Card spot there are a bunch of teams to beat out. I think we have the talent to make the playoffs, but every game is important now with the Broncos leading the division with Wins over the Chiefs and Chargers.

Don't jump to conclusions just yet, Denver has started 5-1 I believe 3 straight years now. They generally start strong and then fade as the year progresses.

Yup! Besides... they have not had a division game on the road yet. We have at least won one division road game.

4-0 at home. 1-1 on the road.

Of their 10 remaining games:
6 are on the road including @KC, @SD, @Dallas, @NYG

Of the 4 at home, they play Philly & Baltimore.

I wouldn't give them the division, yet home field advantage, just yet.

Ok, while it's early... I see this as a finish:

Sun Oct.23 at New York Giants Giants (TOUGH)
Sun Oct.30 vs. PHILADELPHIA (TOUGH)
BYE WEEK
Sun Nov.13 at Oakland (TOUGH)
Sun Nov.20 vs. NEW YORK JETS (WIN)
Thu Nov.24 at Dallas (TOUGH)
Sun Dec. 4 at Kansas City (TOUGH)
Sun Dec.11 vs. BALTIMORE
Sat Dec.17 at Buffalo (WIN)
Sat Dec.24 vs. OAKLAND (WIN)
Sat Dec.31 at San Diego (TOUGH)

I could see them losing at NY next week b/c they have a talented team and it will come down to the offense playing more consistently than they did against the Pats.

If McNabb is as hurt as he appears, then I like their chances of knocking off the Eagles in Denver.

@ KC, @ Dallas and @ SD are potential losses

I fear the BALT matchup even though they suck and the Ravens' defense is dinged up.

I could see Denver finishing the final 10 games at 6-4.

My preseason predictions in the division have played out so far:

Denver starts 6-2 or 7-1, but goes 3-5 or worse in their second half.

KC starts 4-4 or 5-3, but goes 6-2 or 7-1 in the second half.

Oakland starts 0-5 or 1-4 and finishes 6-10 or worse

San Diego finishes around .500, no better than 9-7, no worse than 7-9.

They're only 5-1 because they've played 4 of 'em at home. I can see them losing their next two in a row and maybe 3 since they've got to go to Oakland. They play 4 of their next 6 on the road, things could change a lot in the West Div. standings. They still have to play here and SD and two games against the Raiders, the Raiders can beat them in Denver. I don't see them running away from the Chiefs in the standings. I'll probably be more concerned about SD than Denver in another 6 weeks.

That and the fact they're getting everything at home.

KC has all 3 divisional opponents on the road within the first half of the season, setting them back potentially.

We'll rack 'em up later in the year.

Historically, you're correct and until they prove otherwise ... that is their albatross. However, they did have a nice win at Jax a few weeks ago.

We'll see what happens. Denver has done what they're supposed to do so far - win at home and close out games when carrying a lead. Last year they didn't do that enough, like the Oakland game in Denver.

I like what this defense is doing a lot and the Bailey injury is very concerning, but so far - so good. I hate the RBBC, but I can't hate the results so far.

I think the Giants will test them hard next week and so will the Eagles in 2 weeks. However, I like Denver's chances of going 1-1 at the very least and heading into the bye week with a 6-2 record.

The come out of the bye with 3 of 4 road games - @ Oak, @ Dallas and @ KC... those are all 3 big games and right now I only give Denver a strong chance of winning at Oakland. I chalk up the KC game as a loss for Denver and it all depends on the health of Julius Jones regarding the Dallas game.

Denver will beat the Jets in Denver... so as long as they can enter the bye at 6-2 and come out 2-2 after those 4 games following the bye, I'll take 8-4 as they haad into the final 4 games vs Ravens, Bills, Raiders and Chargers. I can see them beating the 2005 version of the Ravens and the Raiders (both in Denver) and I like their chances vs the Bills.

That looks like a 10-11 win season... which would be fine as long as they win the AFCW... KC doesn't have an easy road either, so win out at home and go .500 on the road and Denver has 11 wins.

Don't misunderstand me, now. The Donks have been pretty impressive thus far; much more so, overall, than we have been.

I've gotta say, lookin' the remainder of our schedules though.....I like our chances--especially if the "Offense" comes around.

It's a long season, to be sure.

The AFC is just a freaking madhouse right now. Its a cliche to say it but basically any team has a shot at making the playoffs, at least as a wild-card. The only teams I feel can start to be ruled out are the Jets (by no fault of their own really. When your starter and top back up its hard to bounce back), the Texans, the Fade, and the Browns.

All that said, the play-offs go through Indy. KC squeaks the division title or makes it as a WC.

Why are Indy's wins more impressive? It can't be the opponent's win-loss record?
Still, IMO Indy is the class of the AFC.
What scares me most about Indy is Dwight Freeney. They may have finally added the missing piece that makes them a legit SB team.

Indy (5-0) has defeated...
Ravens (2-3) / Jags 4-2) / Browns (2-3) / Titans (2-4) / 49ers (1-4)

Combined W/L of 11-16

Broncos (5-1) have defeated...
Chargers (3-3) / Chiefs (3-2) / Jags (4-2) / Skins (3-3) / Patriots (3-3)
Lost to the Dolphins (2-3)

Combined W/L of 17-16 counting all 6 games. Denver has 5 wins against 5 teams at .500 or greater.

By no means am I suggesting that Denver is the best team in the AFC, I'd put them behind teams like the Colts, Steelers and Bengals right now.

Very true and I'm not getting overly excited about 5-1 ... been there, done that... it's all about winning road games now. Nothing has been proven yet and it's only 6 games. The scheduling is brutal and injuries can sneak up and kill a team.

Wow. You really sound like someone who knows what he is talking about.

So, tell me. Which of these games are the impressive wins you are talking about?

@Baltimore - Won 24-7
Jacksonville - Won 10-3
Cleveland - Won 13-6
@Tennessee - Won 31-10
@San Francisco - Won 28-3

The only common opponent they have with the Broncos so far is Jacksonville - the Broncos beat them 20-7 in Jacksonville.

Otherwise, Baltimore has pretty much sucked so far. Cleveland isn't any better. San Francisco is abysmal. Tennessee has surprised me, but they are still 2-4.

The Broncos, on the other hand, have lost to Miami, then beat San Diego, you, Jacksonville, Washington, and New England.

You're right, though. The Colts wins look better. The 13-6 win over Cleveland in Indianapolis was one for the ages.

29 points, I dont care how much of a homer you are that is remarkable...

Denver has had four home games already, and beat us and a marty-choked team at home.. They also beat Skins and Pats at home who are dangerous, but not like years before for the pats.. they had to be given the game agianst the Skins.. Then add the fact they lost to miami...

The Miami game was scary. Coupled with the first half of the Chargers game, I was starting to think this might be a tough year.

The home thing is a valid point. Although I would argue that the home field advantage has narrowed since they moved to Invesco. Nonetheless, it has been correctly pointed out that the Broncos have started strong lately, then faded as the year went on. I think there are elements to this team that will prevent that from happening, but only time will tell.

I think Indy should be considered the best team right now - if nothing else, they are the only team with 0 losses. I just wonder how that defense will do for the year. Dwight Freeney has been a beast so far - what he did to Jonathan Ogden was just scary. But what will happen when they start playing some teams that have good offenses - especially teams that pound the ball with the run?:shrug:

Indy has only given up 29 points through 5 games... but, they've played some less than mediocre offenses in that stretch. The Ravens have been horrible. The 49ers threw out Alex Smith to start that game. The Browns have been good in moments, but their offense is nothing to get excited about. The Titans have struggled.

Again, I would likely rank Denver behind the Colts, Bengals and Steelers (with a healthy Roethlisberger and Ward) right now.

Denver has played a few offenses (KC, SD, NE) that have had the ability to go off, and while they aren't the Ravens of recent years or the Steel Curtain of the 70s - the defense has done very well.

We'll see how it holds up down the stretch.

I'd rank them behind the Colts, but that's it.

Actually, I consider them the equal of the '85 Bears. But I have considered them that every year since the '85 Bears - so there is a nearly-infinitesimal chance that I could just be letting the Broncos fan in me out.

Wow... I don't know that I would go anywhere near that one.

I would rank them behind Cincy for 2 reasons: 1) their offense is consistently putting up points, yards and working the clock and 2) their defense is opportunisitic with takeaways, scoring and smothering the opponent's offense.

The Steelers with Ben and Ward are very good on offense and they have a great defense. I'm not ready to put Denver ahead of either of these teams or Indy at this point, not with 4 home games. I want to see Denver prove they can pound the rock, not commit turnovers and consistently pressure the QB defensively on the road.

5-1 is old hat and I have to be convinced they can win the tough games down the stretch. If Denver is different from the previous two 5-1 teams that have been BLOWN OUT by the Colts, they'll beat the Giants next week - they'll be the Bills in Buffalo and win out at home.

Do those things and I'm convinced that they can advanced and do more than just show up.

I am a Broncos homer - there is no question about that - but there is no way they finish like that.

I'm willing to concede that you MIGHT beat the Raiders in Oakland.

Other than that I stand by my prediction.

You crack me up...

The NYG game will be tough, but if Denver has changed their tune, they should win it. The Eagles - it all depends on how healthy McNabb really is, b/c this defense will hit him and if they can frustrate him like the Cowboys did, then Denver wins by double digits.

F*ck those B1tches. The only reason they're winning is that they are at home and Jake the Fake hasn't been chucking his passes at the opponent like he always does. They'll lose on the road, remember Miami?

As long as it's not in round one, that means Denver would have advanced and won a playoff game... I could live with that, but it's too far away to get worked up about it.

Dude... a KC fan started the thread, plus ... as a reminder, Broncos' homerism is the ONLY homerism allowed on ChiefsPlanet. Go ask Titus.

Denver is winning thanks to being at home (although the Jags was on the road) and Jake has been error free, which is a shock. However, don't discount the defense - they're a huge part of this as well.

You seem to have a lot of pent-up anger. Have you thought about seeing a therapist? I'm just saying.

Saying that they have only been winning because Jake Plummer isn't throwing bad passes is sort of stating the obvious, isn't it?

The Chiefs only won yesterday because they ended up with more points than the Redskins!:D

I think its good to have a reality check.

The Broncos are 5-1. I don't care who they played, and where they played. If you win all your home games, you have a great shot at the playoffs.

The Chiefs are 3-2, which is fine, but we are a game and a half back which is worry some when you look at how we have played.

I think we will really learn about the Chiefs in 2 weeks when we play the Chargers.

Why don't you explain to all of us why KC has the better defense because no Denver d-lineman has as many sacks as Jared Allen?

That will be a good game. IMHO if KCs O-line can gel back to their form of last season the Chiefs will do well the rest of the year. If not the O will struggle.

Agreed, and like I said earlier... they lost in week 1 to the Dolphins who are now 2-3. The Broncos have defeated 5 teams with at least 3 wins... all have winning records, granted 4 were home, but... that's part of it. The scheduling is brutal down the stretch. I'd rather have the bulk of the home games AFTER October and not PRIOR. But, we'll see over the next 6 weeks if anything has changed with Denver or if they're the same type of team as the last 2 seasons.

Razzing is good and I don't disagree with the naysayers... Denver has had 5-1 before and they've not done much with it down the stretch. I think it will be different this year as long as they continue doing what they're doing and building steadily on offense each week.

The Broncs only won the week prior in the same manner that KC won. Don't step on your woodie on the way out, pal. Better yet, hang around. You can give us an update each week on your road game results.

I commend Washington for making it a game. They only did what they came here to do. We created more luck for ourselves than our opponent, had the 12th man working, and wrangled out a win.

I think you missed my point. A comment was made about how the Broncos were only winning because Jake Plummer wasn't making bad throws. I said that such a statement was stating the obvious. I then said that the Chiefs had beat the Redskins because they scored more points than them - also stating the obvious.

It wasn't a jab at the Chiefs. It was a comparison.

But, for the record, I agree with you.

Still, the current Broncos ARE the best team since the '85 Bears. You have to at least concede that, right? :D

Totally agree with this thread. Next week's game against Miami is crucial for us to win given that Denver loss to Miami at the beginning of the season. If we have a chance to win the division we have to win in Miami! Beat Denver at home and then we have a good chance (tiebreaker implications will favor us)! Lose next week, then I see us falling short in the division. As I said in an earlier post, these next 4 games are going to tell the tale of the tape! We're 1-0. IMO we have to be no worse than 3-1 to make the playoffs, but given the current circumstances it looks like 4-0 will give us the best chance of winning our division. Losing to either Miami and/or San Diego will be disasterous!

I like our second half schedule. I'm thinkin' no worse than 6-2, and reasonable chance at 7-1. If we go 2-1 over the next three, that's 11-12 wins.

That should win the division--unless the Donks or Chargers play better on the road, than their histories indicate.

That's just how their division schedule happened to break this year. Jacksonville has a really favorable schedule also based upon that. If you run through and look at the schedules Indy,Cincy,Pitt and Jacksonville are going to make it really hard for any other teams to make it without winning a division.

By the way are the Denver fans sweating the Ravens game? I know they look horrible this year but that team has owned the Broncos in recent history.
