Broncos Playoff Picture

Posted Dec 29, 2013

A look at the opponents the Broncos could face in the Divisional Round of the AFC playoffs.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Broncos are the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

Their first game will come in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, and their opponent will be the lowest seed remaining between the fourth, fifth and sixth seeds.

This year, that means Denver will face the winner of the game between No. 4 Indianapolis Colts and the No. 5 Kansas City Chiefs, or the No. 6 seed San Diego Chargers if they upset the No. 3 seed Cincinnati Bengals.

The Broncos have played all three of those teams this year, going 3-2 in those games. Two of Denver's three losses in the regular season came at the hands of the Colts and Chargers.

The Chiefs-Colts matchup in the Wild Card Round is a rematch of a Week 16 tilt between the two clubs, when Indianapolis won at Arrowhead Stadium.

It would be just the second time the Broncos and Chiefs have ever met in the postseason -- the first meeting was a 14-10 Broncos victory in the Divisional Round following the 1997 season en route to a Super Bowl XXXII championship.

If the Colts are the opponent, it would be the third playoff matchup between the two squads. In both 2003 and 2004, the Broncos lost in the Wild Card Round to Peyton Manning-led Indianapolis.

Denver and San Diego have never squared off in the postseason.

"You’ve got to be ready to go," cornerback Champ Bailey said, "because whoever you face is going to be a really good football team.”

The game will take place on Sunday, January 12 at 2:40 p.m. MST.
