The only negative thing I can say is that the Broncos cannot afford to fall into the trap game that this provides. With so much possibly at stake (division, first round bye, home field advantage) this is one game the Broncos should win if they can stay focused and not score board watch.
With Osweiler starting the final game of the regular season, it is key that he has a lot of confidence going into the playoffs. The running game will also need to get going because it will be important once January playoff football begins.
For some bold predictions, I think Sanders and Thomas will each record one touchdown and 125 receiving yards. C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman will combine for 125 yards rushing. Brock will throw for around 300 yards.
And just for good measure, I think the Broncos will have this game in hand at a certain point that we see Peyton Manning take a few snaps.
Since I said the game will be in hand, I guess that does spoil how this game will shape up. With a division title in sight and a well deserved one week rest, they won’t let it slip away.
