NFL Standings 2011, Week 13: Denver Broncos Marching Right Behind AFC West-Leading Oakland Raiders

The Denver Broncos are waiting for the Oakland Raiders to make a mistake and lose the division lead. After starting 1-4, the Broncos are 6-5 and one win behind the Raiders.

The Denver Broncos (6-5) pulled out a last minute victory over the San Diego Chargers for a 16-13 overtime victory on Sunday. That win has moved the Broncos above .500 for the first time since the team was 8-7 on Dec. 27, 2009. The victory also marked the team going undefeated on the road against the division. Unfortunately, those home losses to the Raiders and Chargers can't be re-done. The Chiefs visit Denver on Jan. 1.

With the victory, the Broncos maintained second place in the AFC West. The division-leading Oakland Raiders defeated the Jay Cutler-less Chicago Bears, 25-20, on the strength of six field goals by Sebastian Janikowski. Caleb Hanie threw three interceptions for the Bears.

The Kansas City Chiefs scored three field goals in a 13-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Tyler Palko threw three interceptions. Kyle Orton is expected to take over the quarterback position for Sunday's game against the Bears.
