NFL Week 14 Predictions: Denver Broncos Will Build on Lead in AFC West

Two months ago, if I would have told you that Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos would be the top team in the AFC West, you probably would have laughed in my face.

In fact, if I tell you today that the Broncos are going to win the AFC West, you'd probably still laugh in my face.

Laugh all you want, that statement is close to becoming a reality.

After a 1-4 start to the season, the Denver Broncos made a change at quarterback that has had everyone talking since.

With Tim Tebow under center, the Broncos have won six of their last seven games, putting them at the top of the AFC West with a 7-5 record.

Now, they control their own destiny with four games remaining in the season.

It's looking promising in Denver.

The Oakland Raiders currently hold a 7-5 record as well. However, they play the undefeated Green Bay Packers this weekend. They also face Detroit and San Diego in two of their final three games.

The Chargers and the Chiefs are each sitting at 5-7, which is fantastic news for Denver.

The Broncos face off against Chicago, New England, Buffalo and Kansas City in their final four games.

Assuming Oakland falls to Green Bay this week, the Broncos can lock the division with just three wins.

Chicago, Buffalo and Kansas City are all games that Denver should have the upper hand.

At 10-6, there is no way that the Chargers or Chiefs can catch them.

Even if the Raiders manage to win their final three games after a loss to Green Bay, they will still lose the tiebreaker with Denver, who would have the better record against common opponents.

This weekend they should extend their lead in the division with a win over the Bears. This isn't the same team that took the field earlier this year.

Without Matt Forte and Jay Cutler, this Bears team doesn't stand a chance. They managed only three points a week ago against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Who knows if Tim Tebow will be the quarterback for this team a year from now?

What does seem like a possibility right now, is that Tim Tebow will be the quarterback who leads this team to the playoffs this season.
