Broncos still alive

After a painful home loss to da Bears two weeks ago, the Bronco’s post season hopes had to be put on life support. And even after yesterday’s 218 yards and 5 TD effort by Clinton Portis and the white-hot Patriots shutout of the Dolphins, the Broncos only have a tenuous grasp on the final AFC playoff berth.

The Broncos remaining opponents are the Browns, Colts and Packers (home, road, road); while the Dolphins take on the Eagles, Bills and Jets (home, road, home). The tie-breaker (conference record) favors the Broncos. But I think that the schedule favors the Dolphins. It’s going to be a tight race to the wire.
