Terrell Davis on the value of a late-season loss
Back in training camp in August, I had the opportunity to speak with Broncos Ring of Famer Terrell Davis. One comment he said resonated with me, and I'd like to share it now.
Washington (+6) at Atlanta
San Francisco (-5.5) at Tampa Bay
Arizona (-2.5) at Tennessee
New Orleans (-6) at St. Louis
Seattle (-7) at New York Giants
Chicago (-1) at Cleveland
Houston (+5) at Indianapolis
Buffalo (-2.5) at Jacksonville
Miami (+1) at New England
Philadelphia (-6.5) at Minnesota
Who to root for
Houston. At 8-5, the Indianapolis Colts are not officially outside of the Broncos' vision yet. Should (somehow) the Colts win out and the Broncos lose out, they could potentially trump Denver in seeding. While situations like this are extremely unlikely with five total games left to play between the two teams, and the Broncos should be just focusing on what they need to do, I'm just adding some educational flavor to your Sunday morning slate of NFL games.
Washington, Tennessee, New York, Jacksonville, and Philadelphia. These teams all fell to the Broncos, meaning the better record they have, the better position the Broncos would be in strength of schedule tiebreaker scenarios.
