Denver Broncos: Making sense of possible playoff paths
Indianapolis Colts (6-6): How Denver surpasses them
For the Denver Broncos, the Indianapolis Colts are similar to the Dolphins by way on how they need to pass them. They both have the same record. But the Colts hold a half game lead based on conference tiebreakers. (5-5 vs. 4-5)
Denver got a huge boost on Sunday when they beat the Bengals and the Colts shockingly got shut out by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Like Miami, Denver just needs the Colts to lose at least one more game than them to surpass them.
Here is the Colts remaining schedule:
at Houston Texans
vs. Dallas Cowboys
vs. New York Giants
at Tennessee Titans
Two home games right in the middle of two road games. Houston is likely winning the AFC South, and the Colts could struggle to beat them. The two NFC games against the Cowboys and Giants at home will be intriguing.
The loss against the Jaguars hurt with just two games against AFC teams left, both in the division. It could be likely the Broncos get past the Colts. But that is why you play the game.
