The Denver Broncos sit at 11-2 and have the inside track to earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Broncos are averaging 39.8 points per game and are outscoring their opponents by more than 13 points per contest.
So what can stop them from winning the Super Bowl? Several things, actually.
While the Broncos are arguably the best team in the league, there are still plenty of obstacles they'll have to overcome to complete their goal of winning a championship and getting Manning another ring.
Despite a career that has easily been one of the best that a quarterback has ever had, Manning has not been overly successful in the postseason, where he has a 9-11 record.
But just like any other championship team, it won't all be on the shoulders of the quarterback to win a title. It will take every player on the roster to help overcome these roadblocks.
