The Denver Broncos have underperformed since last yearís Super Bowl run and now itís causing rifts in the locker-room. Denver hosted the New England Patriots Sunday afternoon at Mile High Stadium, and with the Broncos in the hunt for a playoff spot they havenít played like they want to be a part of the post-season competition and that seems to be the sentiment of the defense as well. After Sundayís game reports started trickling in that Denverís corner Aqib Talib and offensive linemen Russell Okung had an exchange of heated words after coach Gary Kubiak opened up the floor to the players to address other players.†

Denver started Sundayís game on a turnover after the Patriots punted the ball to Broncoís wide receiver Jordan Norwood who has had some questionable ball handling all year. Norwood muffed the punt and fumbled the ball after catching a pass late in the fourth quarter. Norwood, who is not a starting receiver, was activated as a starter but Norwoodís missed opportunities werenít the reason for Denverís loss. The offensive line has been suspect all season causing Denver quarterback Trevor Siemian to have to throw errant and ill-advised passes before a play can develop, resulting in over-throws, under-throws, and interceptions.†

Aside from the usual cry to bench Siemian, Denver and coach Kubiak appear to be unfazed by the decry of fans and undoubtedly believes in the young QB. Denver, who has faced the potentially number one seed in the Patriots, now will have to face both the number two and quite possibly the number 3 seed in order to determine their post-season fate. The Raiders, who are the only team out of the AFC West, to win this weekend have clinched a playoff birth and will likely win the West when all is said and done. The Kansas City Chiefs lost a heartbreaker in Kansas City when the Tennessee Titans kicked a late field-goal to seal the win. Denver is set to face both division rivals before the start of the Wild Card round.†

Denver will start by traveling to Kansas City to face the Chiefs Sunday night before heading home to host the Oakland Raiders on the last game of the season. The Broncos remain in the hunt for a post-season spot and itís unclear how the offense will respond to the defenseís displeasure with them.†
