Which Teams a Broncos Fan Should Cheer For (week seven)

 

question marks you rtardQuestion marks the spot question marks

 

So you're sitting there wondering which game to watch, and Denver isn't available.  Which team do you cheer for if you want the outcome to help Denver?  No problem; MileHighReport.com has you covered.

Remember, this has nothing to do with which teams we like or hate.  It is purely based on what outcomes best position Denver for the playoffs, and a good seeding once there. 

We're also rating the games on how important they are for Denver fans.  For instance, a Denver game, or a game that features a Denver division rival, gets near a 5, while a less important game gets a 1.  So given a choice of several games, you now know which one is more important to watch!  (Teams for Denver fans to cheer for are in CAPS). 

Let's feed the schedule into MHR's Super Computer and see what results we get...

sd at BUF (4.5) - Always cheer against an AFC West rival.

NO at car (2) - We've beaten NO already, so we want them to have a good record (for the "common opponent" tie-break).  Also, they have a lesser record than car.

MIN at chi (1) - chi has the lesser record.

pitt at CIN (3) - We want any potential wild card team's chances (or playoff contender) to have as bad a record as possible for seeding purposes.

TEN at kc (4) - Always cheer against an AFC West rival.

bal at MIA (3) - We will be playing MIA, and would like for them to have a good record for the common opponent tie-break.

dal at STL (1.75) - Anything that makes it harder for a good NFC team to get a good seed helps a potential Denver SB drive.

DET at hou (2.75) - Always take the NFC team over an AFC team to help Denver's chances.

ind at GB (3.25) - Always take the NFC team over an AFC team to help Denver's chances.

NYJ at oak (4) - Always cheer against an AFC West rival.

cle at WAS (3) - Always take the NFC team over an AFC team to help Denver's chances.

sea at TB (2.25) - We want TB to have the better record because we've already beaten them.

DEN at ne (5) - Always cheer for Denver.
