ESPN.com’s playoff predictor, an Insider piece, believes there is no chance the Denver Broncos will be watching the playoffs from the outside. It gives Denver a 100 percent chance to make the playoffs and predicts the Broncos will be the No. 2 seed and receive a bye in the first round of the playoffs.
If Denver can get the first-round bye, it would have to be considered a serious Super Bowl contender. The key game is Week 15 at Baltimore. If the Broncos want to secure a bye, they may need to win that game.
