The playoff picture became a little clearer on Sunday... and by clearer, I mean the Broncos could end up with any playoff position but the 4th seed, or they could miss the playoffs entirely. If Denver wins out in these last two games, they will win the AFC West.
It all comes down to Monday Night football against the Cincinnati Bengals. Denver needs to take care of business for a shot at the bye. Lose tonight and Denver will be battling San Diego next week for a shot at a wild card. If they lose both remaining games, no playoffs for Denver and 2015 ends in disappointment.
If Denver is a playoff team, it's high time to show the world in prime time. Dropped balls, missed tackles, and poor play calling need to take a backseat to scoring and a return of stifling defensive play. I know the Broncos have it in them and I will be rooting for them to let it out on Monday night. The time is now.
The playoff scenarios are many going into Monday night's tilt with the Bengals. Here are a bunch of articles that go in depth as to how it can all shake out.
