Denver Broncos: Week 15 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 5 (+0)

Record: 10-3

Net points per drive: 0.65 (4th)

DVOA: 35.5% (3rd)

Weighted DVOA: 37.9% (3rd)

The Broncos are on an 8 game winning streak, but the Patriots control their own destiny for the #2 seed and if they beat the 49ers this weekend and I think they will win that one. The Broncos have their own huge game this week in Baltimore, which will probably be for the #3 seed if the Patriots win. It looks like the Broncos will be going to Foxboro in the AFC Divisional round for another Brady/Manning game. The Patriots won the first game in Foxboro and they’ll definitely be favored to win the 2nd game.

  1. The Denver Broncos put on what can only be called a defensive clinic the first half of the game. I’m convinced that if the Broncos continue to play defense in the fashion they demonstrated in this game they will go far in the pending NFL playoffs. Knowshon Moreno looked like he gets stronger and runs harder and better as the game progresses that has got to be a plus for Peyton Manning and the Bronco Offense.
