Broncos await their next opponent

January 01, 2015 18:26:23 UK

Denver Broncos have enjoyed another strong season in the AFC West.

The Denver Broncos will celebrate their AFC West Division title this weekend with the second seed in the Conference and a bye following another successful campaign.

An early November defeat to the New England Patriots in Foxboro meant that the Broncos were never really candidates to claim the top seed and it would be no surprise if Peyton Manning and Tom Brady met in the AFC championship at Gillette Stadium after guiding their sides to 12-4 records.

Both teams await the outcome of Wild Card weekend, which somewhat surprisingly is devoid of any other AFC West Division side. The San Diego Chargers had the best opportunity to join Denver in the post-season, but came unstuck against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

Four Cairo Santos field goals and a fumble recovery in the end zone were enough for the hosts to run out 19-7 winners. Chase Daniel in place of the injured Alex Smith completed 16-of-27 for 157 yards with no touchdowns, but equally no interceptions as the Chiefs looked to sneak into the playoffs on the final day of the regular season.

Over on the visiting sidelines Philip Rivers was picked off twice and that ultimately was the difference in the ball game as the Chargers blew an excellent chance to make some noise in January for the second consecutive season.

Both the Baltimore Ravens and the Houston Texans needed to lose for Kansas City to get the sixth and final seed in the AFC. However Baltimore’s triumph over the Cleveland Browns was enough to send the Ravens into the post-season and a match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Broncos are 6.50 to win the Super Bowl, while the Ravens can be backed at 34.00.
