The Wild and Wacky AFC West Division, of which the Denver Broncos are a proud participant, is now practically dead even. Figure that one out.
Luckily, the Broncos get a week off to heal from their devastating loss on Sunday, with some pundits even calling for major coaching changes and taking the ball away from quarterback “Steady” Teddy Bridgewater and handing it to Drew Lock.
When the Broncos return from their needed sabbatical, they will face the L.A. Chargers in Denver. These are two teams that plain and simply don’t like each other much
Game time for the Nov 28 Broncos/Chargers duel is 2:05 p.m., a great time for a hearty meal, a drink or two and a hopeful Bronco victory. In fact, beverages of choice may be a requirement for this Bronco viewing, a must-win if Denver wanst to compete in the AFC West.

For extra pigskin predictions, check out the choices of TMJ sportswriter and Community Celebrity Trevor Phipps. And due to popular demand, we now feature the predictions of the infamous “Philly Joe,” one of the High Country’s more charismatic characters, and a staunch Philadelphia Eagles fan. (Everyone has their weaknesses.) We must give credit, though, where it is due. Philly Joe predicted Sunday’s Broncos upset earlier. But he forgot to disclose that the Broncos were going to self-destruct.
Disagree with Joe on any of his picks, and you can probably discuss your views with him at McGinty’s.
These picks can be viewed every week by visiting www.mountainjackpot.com and our Facebook page, and if space provides, in our printed editions. See this week’s TMJ for Philly Joe’s comments on Week 11.
