Why Denver is correctly #1

19 Dec

Consistency. That’s what makes a team transition from just good to great, from ordinary to elite. The Denver Broncos have been in a nine game winning streak and sure, they were against teams that the Broncos should have won but nine NFL games none-the-less. I don’t care which team you are playing but a division game is not as easy as they seem even if they are against the Chiefs and Raiders.


You’re telling me that the Giants couldn’t beat the Redskins last year because the Redskins are good? No, division games are extremely hard to win.


The three teams that Denver has lost to have all had extremely good seasons this year with all three being the best in the NFL at one point this year. The Falcons have lost to the Panthers and Saints this season with great victories over the Giants and Tampa Bay in week 12. But these are the same Falcons that lost to the Panthers, barely beat the Raiders and Cardinals. How do we not know that these Falcons will not pull another game like the ones against any of those previous three teams in the playoffs?


Houston was absolutely dismantled by both the Patriots as well as the Packers, both offensive juggernauts. Is Denver not an offensive juggernaut with second in the league in scoring (guess who number one is) and second in the league in touchdowns? Challenge the Houston secondary and, they will have no response, whatever happened to Matt Schaub? 


The Pats are a different story than those other two teams because they have lost to both good teams and bad teams or should I say team. The San Francisco game was something that will probably never happen with so many offensive fumbles by the New England running backs have not been accustomed to fumbling. The games against Baltimore and Seattle have been bad games by the defense that shows that the defense is inconsistent in a few games with making Joe Flacco and Russell Wilson look like Tom Brady.


The Broncos have not lost any games like those faced by those three teams and shows why the Denver Broncos are the best team in the NFL and will be the favorite to represent the AFC in the Superbowl, not saying they will win because San Francisco is a very scary team as well as the Packers.
