The Broncos can clinch a playoff spot this weekend.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos can be the second team in the NFL to clinch a playoff spot this season. Last night the Seattle Seahawks were the first team to clinch a spot in the big dance.

The Broncos do control their own destiny. They're 10-2 after defeating their division rival Kansas City Chiefs, and have the fast track to the #1 seed in the AFC, and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Here's how the Broncos can Clinch a Playoff spot this weekend...

Denver Broncos

Denver clinches a playoff spot with:

  1. DEN win/tie OR
  2. MIA loss/tie OR
  3. BAL loss/tie
  • It's simple, Denver wins and they're in the playoffs. The Broncos can get in even with a loss. Miami plays Pittsburgh, and Baltimore plays Minnesota. Another team to keep an eye on is the New England Patriots. They're the only team that can challenge the Broncos for the #1 seed. The Patriots host the Cleveland Browns this week.
If you want to mess around with Playoff scenarios for the entire NFL i recommend to play with ESPN's Playoff Machine. It's a cool tool to mess around with.
