This has all the indication of a trap game for the Denver Broncos. With the team banged up and the two big bad NFC North teams in the following weeks, the Broncos can’t overlook their AFC West rivals.

With a chance to clinch a playoff birth before two challenges ahead, I do not see the Broncos squandering that opportunity, especially if the teams that they need help from end up helping out.

For my bold predictions, I am going to say that Talib ends up getting himself back on the map and records two interceptions. Sanders will rebound and score over 100 receiving yards in the game.

Next: Peyton Manning to return soon?

The biggest bold prediction, the Broncos will rush and get just enough to go over 100 yards. I will say 110 yards on the ground. Mostly due to the injuries to C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman.

However, that will be made up for when Brock Osweiler has his first ever 300 yard passing performance. This won’t be easy, but I think the Broncos move to 4-0 under Osweiler going into Pittsburgh.
