Broncos, Manning happy with current seed
A Houston loss and a Denver win would give the top seed in the league to the Broncos. However, if both teams lose and the Patriots win, the Broncos will tumble to third place behind the Patriots and the Texans and miss out on a first-round playoff bye.
Quarterback Peyton Manning said that he didn't care what seed the Broncos had, as long as they continue to improve and grow as a team: "The fact that we have a chance to improve is important to me ... This is another chance to work on something."
Few believe the Broncos will have trouble with the lowly Kansas City Chiefs, who are 2-13.
