It took Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos a few weeks to gel, but once they found their rhythm they were pretty much unstoppable in 2012. At least in the regular season.
Denver should be considered a favourite in the AFC and for the Super Bowl again this season.
Barring a catastrophic injury or two, the Broncos should have no problem wrapping up a weak division early in the year giving them plenty of time to gear up for the playoffs. And that's when games will start to count.
Another top seed would be nice, but it won't mean anything if the Broncos go one and done.
