Should the NFL and the Players' Association reach a new collective bargaining agreement in order to stave off a canceled season in fall 2011, we now know who the Denver Broncos will play. All things being equal (though they never are), the Broncos should have an easier go if it this time around. Here's the breakdown.
All three of the AFC West companions finished with .500 or above records, while the Chicago Bears (11), the New England Patriots (14) and the New York Jets (11) finished with above 10 victories. The Green Bay Packers had 10 wins. All the other teams had below .500 records. Both the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals finished the season with a 4-12 record, the same as the Broncos'.
Times, date and broadcast info will be released in April.
