If the Broncos are going to reach the playoffs, they will need to win their final three games of the season and get some help from other teams. Here’s a look at the current playoff teams in the conference.
There are five teams standing between Denver and the seventh and final seed in the AFC, including the Baltimore Ravens (8-6) and Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6-1). With those teams ahead of them, the Broncos will not control their own destiny in the hunt for a postseason berth.
This week, fans in Denver should root for a Patriots win over the Bills and a Cardinals win over the Colts. The Broncos, of course, also have to beat the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive.
