It’s another Super Bowl week, and another Super Bowl without an AFC West participant.
The division has not been represented in the Super Bowl since Oakland lost to Tampa Bay (no, we’re not going to mention Tim Brown or Bill Callahan) in 2003. It is the longest divisional drought in the NFL. In fact, every other division has been represented in the Super Bowl at least twice since then.
What team in the AFC West do you think has the best chance of ending the dry spell?
Because Denver, which was the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs and lost at home to Baltimore in double overtime, was the only team with a winning record in the division in 2012, I’d think it has to be the favorite. And it has one of the best players in the NFL in quarterback Peyton Manning.
Still, anything can happen in the NFL. Please take our poll and express the your thoughts in the comments section below. We will review the poll results Wednesday.
