There will be a lot on the line on Saturday afternoon when the Denver Broncos take on the Buffalo Bills. For one, the Broncos will be eager to prove that last week's blowout loss to the New England Patriots was a fluke, and not a sign that Tebowmania is on the downswing. More importantly, the Broncos can take a commanding lead in the AFC West heading into their Week 17 match up vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, or they may even be able to clinch the division outright.
The Broncos have a few things going in their favor. The biggest match up of the game will be the Broncos running game vs. the Bills run defense, and in that category Denver should have a big advantage. The Bills are fifth worst in the NFL in stopping the run, and their battered defensive line is fresh off of giving up over 200 yards rushing to Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush in Week 15. The second is that the Bills' best offensive weapon— wide receiver Stevie Johnson— has been limited in practice this week as he battles a nagging groin injury.
