Breaking Down Every Potential Playoff Matchup for Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos currently stand at a record of 10-3 through the first 14 weeks of the NFL season. With the Patriots' 42-14 blowout victory over the Houston Texans on Monday night, the Patriots are also at 10-3, with the Texans at 11-2. The Ravens are right behind them with a 9-4 record, with the Colts and the Steelers currently slotted in the Wild Card spots.

If the playoffs were to start today, Denver would be slotted as the No. 3 seed. The Broncos lose the head-to-head tiebreaker based upon their Week 5 loss to the Patriots. The Texans would be the No. 1 seed, with New England at No. 2. The Ravens would be the fourth seed, with the Colts as the fifth and the Steelers as the sixth seed.

The Broncos would end up hosting Pittsburgh on Wild Card weekend for the second straight year. With three weeks left in the season, a lot can change still. Denver still has to visit Baltimore in Week 15, and all Denver needs is one loss by New England in the final three games of the regular season to have a chance of overtaking them for the No. 2 seed.

Denver has already clinched its division and will be no worse than the fourth seed entering the postseason. The Broncos will host at least one playoff game.

What are Denver's chances against the rest of the AFC playoff contenders?
