The Denver Broncos are focused and ready for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs — one that’s not only the last game at home against a division rival, but one that also means an unexpected AFC West title. Given the recent struggles of the Broncos to capitalize on chances for success, that’s good news that the Broncos have forgotten those days.
It was just two years ago that the Broncos started out 6-0 and seemed to be the class of the NFL under first-year coach Josh McDaniels. Instead, the team tanked in the end and missed the playoffs. Tim Tebow says that the team is motivated and ready for the goal ahead this time around.
“We’re a very motivated team,” said Tebow. "We had a good practice today. We’re going to be extremely focused. This is what you play for. It’s just like another playoff game for us. We are excited about it and we’re motivated. I believe we’ll go out there and leave everything on the field.”
The Broncos can also get in via a Raiders loss, but Tebow and company are likely to want to take matters into their own hands. As for the Chiefs, they’re playing for Romeo Crennel’s chances to remain head coach on a permanent basis and end-of-year pride and momentum.
