I hope Denver loses to the Pats, but we have to win the next two games regardless. If we both win or we both lose this weekend, then the winner of the game at Arrowhead will be one game ahead in the standings. Even if we win and the Donks lose, this weekend, we will go into Arrowhead 1 game ahead. A Chiefs loss there would tie us up again and Denver would have the tiebreaker by beating us twice. If we lose this weekend and The Donks win, we will go into Arrowhead one game back. If we win that one we will be tied again and division record and then conference record will determine the leader.
So win or lose, this Sunday, Denver will have the upper hand the next week. We have to win both to be in control of the division.
