The most important game every week is the one your team in playing in. Fact.

However, this Sunday’s contest between the Broncos and Steelers should be coming in a close second on your radar. Why? Because this game may have more impact on the Chiefs’ playoff chances and implications than any other single game.

It has been going around the sports world that the Chiefs now have an opportunity get the AFC West crown with Denver’s loss to Oakland.

The Broncos still maintain a two game lead in the division, which is not usually great odds with only three games left in the season. But due to the circumstance, K.C.’s odds are better than  normal in this situation.

Denver has been reeling of late. They managed to play well enough to keep winning (mostly thanks to a stout defense) in spite of losing Peyton Manning to injury. But there offense has looked shaky. So shaky that last weekend they blew a halftime shutout where the opponent had been held to negative 12 yards. So the horse men are looking vulnerable with two games against tough opponents in Weeks 15 and 16.

Next: Winning the AFC West?
