Week 11 was a good week for the Denver Broncos.
Not only were they able to pull out a close victory over the Minnesota Vikings, but, as reporter Zac Stevens points out, they were the only team in the AFC West to win this week.

The Chiefs, Raiders and Chargers all lost.

The Broncos’ win brought their season record to 5-5, which is good for second place in the division.
While they have a long road to catching the Kansas City Chiefs as the divisional leaders, their recent play is encouraging.
After starting the year poorly, the Broncos have started to figure it out, resulting in a four-game winning streak, the longest active streak in the NFL.
Russell Wilson has started to play like a former MVP candidate, and all levels of this team seem to be functioning well.
With that being said, their streak could be in jeopardy based on their upcoming schedule.
The Broncos’ next three games are against the Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, and Los Angeles Chargers.
The Browns have one of the best defenses in the NFL, a difficult test for even the league’s best offenses.
C.J. Stroud has brought the Texans back to life, making them a tough out as well.
The Chargers are struggling lately, but any divisional game presents its tough task.
If the Broncos want to make a surprising run to the postseason, they’ll need to keep their winning ways alive.
The AFC remains strong, and it is incredibly top-heavy.
There will be limited spots for other teams to sneak into the playoffs.
Will the Broncos be one of them?
