DEN-NE: AFC title preview?

What seemed like a runaway win for the Denver Broncos -- they led 24-0 at halftime -- turned into one of the season's more back-and-forth battles, with the New England Patriots forcing overtime and winning 34-31 thanks to a late muffed punt. New England now is 8-3, the third-best record in the AFC and three games up on their two closest division rivals. Denver (9-2) is tied with Kansas City for the AFC West lead, with those teams facing off in Missouri next Sunday. Will Tom Brady and Peyton Manning meet again with a Super Bowl trip on the line?
