The FGR Week 15 Thursday Night Pick

At Denver by 10.5 over San Diego: The Pick - Broncos

This is Sam. I think she could actually
 sell me on the green eggs and ham thing.
With Gronkowski now out for the season, it would certainly appear that the AFC is the Broncos' for the taking. Consider that if the playoffs started today, their toughest scenario would probably be hosting an offensively challenged Ravens team followed by a conference championship game against the banged-up Patriots or the overmatched Chiefs.* No problem right? I mean John Fox and Peyton Manning don't gag away playoff situations where they're heavy favorites (hmmmm). But we don't have to pick that game yet. The one thing we do know is that the Broncos are trouncing teams at home on their way to the top seed and it's time for the Chargers to finally crush the playoff dreams of their fans.

* Yes, this playoff scenario is predicated on the Ravens beating the Bengals in Cincinnati but I don't care where the game is being played if you're giving me John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco against Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton. That is simply a matchup of two guys who find ways to win against two guys who find ways to lose.
