17 ex-Broncos players involved in divisional round of NFL playoffs

The NFL playoffs continue this weekend with four games in the divisional round, and 17 former Denver Broncos players are involved.

The Houston Texans will utilize fullback Andrew Beck and tight end Eric Saubert on offense with Case Keenum serving as a backup quarterback. On defense, Houston has safety Kareem Jackson and practice squad defensive lineman McTelvin Agim.

The Texans will face the Baltimore Ravens, who have backup quarterback Josh Johnson and cornerback Ronald Darby.

Over in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers with running back Emanuel Wilson will take on the San Francisco 49ers, who have backup quarterback Brandon Allen and pass rusher Randy Gregory.

Elsewhere in the NFC, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and pass rusher Shaq Barrett will face the Detroit Lions and offensive lineman Graham Glasgow, wide receiver Kalif Raymond and backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

To wrap up the divisional round, the Buffalo Bills have running back Latavius Murray, pass rusher Von Miller and punter Sam Martin on the roster ahead of a clash with the Kansas City Chiefs.

With former Denver players on all but one team still alive in the playoffs, the two conference title games next weekend are guaranteed to feature ex-Broncos.
