Champ Bailey showed he still has it by helping keep V-Jax in check.
The Broncos Thursday game is a bigger game than it seems. A win this week could potentially have the Broncos in the number two seed alone after this week. The Patriots have a tough game against the Texans and the Redskins I think have a great shot at beating Baltimore. We need to win this game. How sweet would it be to have an opportunity to sweep the division. If I had to pick a team to play in the first round I am not sure who I would want that to be. I feel like Indianapolis would be our best bet but but they can score points. Pittsburgh has the ability to beat every team in the league. It is exciting times in Bronco land.
