The Wild and Wacky AFC West Division, of which the Denver Broncos are a proud participant, is getting crazier and harder to predict every week.
Unfortunately, national television prime appearances haven’t proven good the Broncs, who got spanked on Sunday night.
The Broncos now will get an easier tamer opponent, as they square off at home against the Detroit Lions this Sunday afternoon. The Lions are sitting at 1-10-1, so Denver should pick up the win, unless the Lions decide to roar again. And based on recent trends, Denver appears to play well after a brutal loss.
Game time for the Dec. 12 showdown 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 the Broncs want to compete in the AFC West.
