The Denver Broncos are sitting at 7-3 going into the bye. I’ll be taking a look at their final six games of the 2016 regular season.
It is crazy to think that the Denver Broncos and the rest of the NFL teams have only six or seven games left in their season. With Week 11 beginning on Thursday with the Panthers vs. Saints, the push to the playoffs begins now.
As of right now, the Denver Broncos are sitting with a 7-3 record. Normally, this would indicate that they would be leading their division or a top three seed in the AFC Playoffs.

This year is different. The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders have surprised me and also sit at seven wins at this point in the season.
Currently, the Chiefs lead the division with a 7-2 mark. The Broncos and Raiders are both tied at 7-3. However, (and it makes me sick to say it) the Raiders own the tiebreaker due to their win in Week 9.
Both the Raiders and Chiefs will catch up with the Broncos by the end of Week 11 while they play and the Broncos take the week off.
Looking ahead to the remaining schedule, the final six teams that the defending Super Bowl champs will be playing is not going to be easy.
In fact, it is believed that the Broncos have the most difficult remaining schedule out of all the other 32 teams. And it makes sense. As of right now, four of the five teams that they play (the team plays Kansas City twice) all have at least a .500 record or better.
It will not be an easy task, but let us take a look at the final six games for the Denver Broncos.
