Here’s the Denver Broncos’ task for the day: beat the 2-13 Kansas City Chiefs at home and the road to the Super Bowl goes through Denver.
Thanks to a spirited Indianapolis victory over Houston on Sunday, the Broncos are in the position to be the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. If Denver, 12-3, loses Sunday, it could fall to the No. 3 seed and play next weekend.
The Broncos said they would not watch the scoreboard Sunday. But I’d imagine someone might let the cat out of the bag to ensure this team stays focused on the task at hand.
