2. Denver Broncos (9-2, Previous 1)
With a chance to finally snag first in the AFC West from the Chiefs, the Broncos blew it big-time in an overtime loss to the Pats that came down to a special teams blunder. Peyton Manning was sluggish for most of the game in frigid Foxboro, but Knowshon Moreno made up the difference with a career-high 224 yards on 37 carries. In the end, though, they blew a 24-0 halftime lead and lost a winnable game. Next week’s showdown at Arrowhead Stadium looms large. (Getty Photo)
