Open Thread: Sunday Week 12

Enjoy the games, and Go Broncos!

Poll question added: So, Broncos fans - with Denver at 8-3 and the AFCW almost locked up, who are you rooting for in today's Ravens/Chargers game? The magic number for a Denver AFCW title (combination of Broncos wins, Chargers losses) is just two, while the Broncos are battling the Ravens for playoff seeding in the AFC.

We're thinking that Broncos Country should be rooting for San Diego, as difficult as that may be. What say you?

It's a mild, sunny day at Arrowhead, where Caleb Hanie, Andre Caldwell, Tracy Porter, Manny Ramirez, Julius Thomas, and Sealver Siliga are inactive for the Broncos. Porter made the trip after finally receiving medical clearance, but will be sidelined in favor of Omar Bolden. As expected, Chris Kuper returns to the starting lineup at right guard.

Jamey Eisenberg of CBS Sports is reporting that Knowshon Moreno will get the start at halfback for Denver today.

Kansas City will be without LT Branden Albert, DL Jerrell Powe, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Steve Breaston, WR Devon Wylie, DB Tysyn Hartman, and RB Cyrus Gray. Donald Stephenson will start in place of Albert, which spells trouble for Brady Quinn, who will at least have Ryan Lilja and Jon Asamoah helping protect him today.

Sterling Sharpe praises the route running of Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas on Total Access, and what does it mean to "reek" havoc?

Here are the rest of the day's inactive lists.

With the Broncos' magic number now down to just two, are you rooting for the Chargers (quicker AFCW title) or Ravens (playoff seeding) to win today?
