DENVER BRONCOS - The Denver Broncos lost at Philadelphia last night on a last-second field goal. The Eagles took the game 30-27.
At 8-7, the Broncos still have a chance to get the AFC Wild Card, but they need a lot of help: they first must win at home Sunday against Kansas City. Then the Broncos need to have two of these three teams lose: Pittsburgh, Baltimore and the NY Jets. There are also four other scenarios that could get the Broncos into the post-season, but it all starts Sunday when they must win against Kansas City.
There will be no unbeaten teams in the NFL this season. When the Indianapolis Colts fell to the New York Jets yesterday, the Colts pulled many starters, allowing the Jets a better chance at a victory. Colts head coach Jim Caldwell.
