1. Denver Broncos

Record: 10-2, first-place in AFC West Remaining schedule: vs. Tennessee Titans (Dec. 8), vs. San Diego Chargers (Dec. 12), at Houston Texans (Dec. 22), at Oakland Raiders (Dec. 29) Skinny: The Broncos are in the driver's seat to clinch the top seed in the AFC and earn home-field advantage in the playoffs by virtue of them sweeping the Chiefs (9-3). With Peyton Manning delivering five touchdown passes in Sunday's win in Kansas City, the Broncos are operating from a position of strength and would have a bye in the first round if the season were over today.
