In a must-win game, the Denver Broncos put out a dominant performance in Week 14 on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers. Not only did they win, but they smothered the Chargers offense and exploited their defense with several key big plays to move themselves into a six-way tie in the AFC at 7-6.
That AFC playoff picture is insane. Those 7-6 teams are all vying for the final two playoff spots, but I could see some of those 8-5 teams losing some games to further complicate the situation down the stretch. The only thing Denver can control is staking wins and after this ‘most important game of the year’ they have another ‘most important game of the year’ next week against the Detroit Lions. Even so, it’s fun to have Denver winning important and relevant games in December.
