The NFL has made some questionable moves over the last few years.
One of the better ones was to end the regular season with divisional games.
It heightens the rivalries and puts even more attention on the NFL. Case in point: Three games on Sunday will determine division winners. Three other games in the AFC will determine which team makes the playoffs as the final wild card.
In terms of the Denver Broncos, it doesn’t get better than ending the regular season against the Oakland Raiders.
Not only will Denver get the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye with a win, it will also cap an 8-0 season at home. With that feat, the Broncos would tie for a perfect home record the second-most times in NFL history.
Plus, with the endless drivel and scrutiny on this team, what better way to end the season than with a thrashing of Oakland?
Though, even if Denver were to drop a 50-burger on the Raiders, it still wouldn’t be enough for some.
Here are the Broncos to watch in the final tune up for the playoffs.
