If Denver gallops into New Jersey this season and wins, it would be the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory since 1998.

Denver Broncos Playoff Schedule
Week 16 finalized a lot of playoff contenders and locked in all AFC division champions: the Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and Denver Broncos. Thanks to incredible regular season play, the Broncos already clinched a first-round bye, so their first playoff game will be in the Divisional Round at Mile High. To finish out the regular season with a bang and No. 1 seed, they must win their final game against the Oakland Raiders and the Patriots (who hold the tiebreaker) must lose to Baltimore Ravens for Denver to gain home field advantage throughout the postseason. At worst, the Broncos will finish as the No. 2 seed, which may mean a playoff game in Foxboro against the Patriots, where Denver has struggled before, including last month’s loss.
We all know anything can happen in playoffs, but the Divisional Game is projected to feature the Broncos against the Kansas City Chiefs, followed by the penultimate AFC Championship game on January 19. This game is projected to feature the ultimate quarterback rivalry of the era: Peyton Manning against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Can Brady upset the Broncos’ offensive powerhouse? Can Manning shake off his poor playoff history this year?
