Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Denver Broncos Preview
This Sunday in the NFL we have two teams who are looking like they could be potential playoff teams, but only one of them is within striking distance of locking in their playoff spot. This team is the Denver Broncos, who are a nice 8-3 thanks to six straight wins to get them to this point. You can’t complain about the ridiculous work that Peyton Manning has done in his time with the Broncos. They are one win away from locking up a below average AFC West which features the disappointing San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, and Kansas City Chiefs. On the other side, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were almost counted out earlier in the season, but they’ve gone 4-1 in their last five games and are now 6-5 and looking to be right in the heart of the wild card race.

Can the Bucs Get a Road Win?
The Bucs are going to be on the road against Peyton, and their defense is going to need to be in top form on Sunday. It’s not going to be easy, especially with the crowd ready to roll in Denver. Fortunately for the Bucs though, Doug Martin has been killer this season, and they’ve been led by strong play by Josh Freeman over the past few weeks. This team has shown that even if they end up going down early in the game, that they are more than capable of making a comeback late. Here’s to hoping that the Bucs don’t have to make that comeback on Sunday though.
Peyton Manning Continuing His MVP Season
Now for the Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning, they’ve been incredibly strong over the past few games. The thing is though, they have been winning some close games as well, including their last one against the Kansas City Chiefs. The key here is which Broncos team is going to show up, it seems that they are either putting quite a few points on the board and the defense is struggling a bit to slow down opposing offenses, or games turn into defensive battles between the Broncos and their opponents.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Denver Broncos Betting Prediction
The Broncos come into this game as -7 home favorites. In all honesty, with the Denver Broncos one win away from locking up the division in the AFC West I can’t see them losing this game on their home field. I also can’t imagine a Tampa Bay Bucs team who has been playing very well getting dominated and pushed out of this game easily by the Broncos. With that being said, I’m expecting a tight one that could go back and forth, and will feature the Broncos getting the job done by around a field goal or four points at the end of the day. Expect a big day from Manning against this Bucs secondary, but also for Doug Martin to have a big day and help the Bucs be able to keep pace with the Broncos. My prediction for this one is the Denver Broncos 28 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24. Which means you should bet on the Bucs +7 this Sunday.
