Week 15 NFL Power Rankings: Have The Denver Broncos Reached Their Apogee Before Game Against New England Patriots?

The Denver Broncos might not move up all that much, if at all, in the latest NFL power rankings, but it might be the team's highest rating this season if they lost to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Will the Denver Broncos see its highest position for the season when the Week 15 NFL power rankings come out on Tuesday morning? Winners of six straight games, 7-1 since Tim Tebow took over as quarterback and 8-5 overall for first-place in the AFC West, the Broncos are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. They came in between being the No. 8 team and the No. 10 team last week. But, unlike last week, there aren't any teams that lost badly enough to drop below the Broncos.

Obviously the 13-0 Green Bay Packers are going to be the No. 1 team again and the Baltimore Ravens are like to be No. 2 behind them. However, the San Francisco 49ers are likely to drop down a spot or two, but now below the Broncos. The New Orleans Saints, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans all won, which would make it hard for them to be moved below the Broncos.

The Dallas Cowboys were ranked ahead of the Broncos in a couple of places and should fall in those rankings after a loss to the New York Giants.

This could be the high point for the Denver Broncos should they fall to the Patriots on Sunday, but are Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos really going to let that happen?
