45. <p>As a result of dropping two straight games, the Broncos fall outside of the top five this week.</p> <p>The Broncos have no one but themselves to blame for blowing that 27-13 halftime lead in Pittsburgh. They were hot in the first half, scoring four touchdowns on their first four possessions, but the first four drives of the second half were in stark contrast and the struggles only continued. Brock Osweiler will be kicking himself all week for not capitalizing off Big Ben’s late interception.</p> <p>All of a sudden, the Broncos’ stranglehold on the AFC West has slackened and the Chiefs are threatening. So yeah, next week’s game against the Bengals is a pretty big deal.</p>. AFC West. 10-4. Denver Broncos. 6. player

Next: 5. New York Jets
