Going into Week 15, the 8-5 Broncos are actually trying to secure a Wild Card spot. After falling 13-10 to the Tennessee Titans (just two weeks after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime) the Broncos are on the verge of elimination. If they miss out, it would be the first NFL postseason without the Ponies since 2010, per ESPN. The plan to avoid the fate?
“We’re going to have to play exceptional from here on, especially this week,” head coach Gary Kubiak, 55, said, before adding that Denver’s upcoming opponents are “the best team in football.” His feelings were echoed throughout the rest of the team.
“I don’t care who we play, we need to win these next three games,” T.J. Ward, 30, a safety for Denver, said. “We’ve been in some tough games and come out on top and we’ve been on the bottom of some tough games. We’ve played two of the teams already. One was close and one was not.” T.J. must mean the Chiefs and Oakland Raiders, who are the last two teams the Broncos will face in the regular season.
The Broncos lost to Oakland, 30-20, on Nov. 7, and that defeat by their AFC West divisional rivals set Denver back. Even if both Kansas and Oakland lose their last three games (while Denver wins) the Broncos may lose out due to how many wins the Raiders have over their division rivals. Yikes. Even before the 11-2 Patriots take the field, the season might just be over for the Broncos.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Denver will make the postseason?
