[1:00 PM] Broncos @ Titans

Who will WIN this matchup?

Denver Broncos (8-4)

@ Tennessee Titans (6-6)


With their quarterback situation still up in the air, the Denver Broncos attempt to keep alive their hopes for a sixth consecutive division title when they visit the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Denver entered Week 14 two games out of first place in the AFC West but can draw within one with a victory thanks to Oakland’s loss on Thursday to Kansas City, which claimed the top spot by virtue of sweeping the season series with the Raiders.

The Titans’ quest for their first AFC South title since 2008 could take a hit if their recent trend continues, as the team has alternated wins and losses over the last seven weeks and is in line for a setback. Tennessee, which is coming off its bye week, will visit the Chiefs and woeful Jaguars before finishing the regular season at home against the Texans.

If Siemian is unable to play, Paxton Lynch will make his second straight start Sunday. The 22-year-old rookie out of Memphis didn’t exactly light it up against Jacksonville last week, completing 12-of-24 passes for 104 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Linebacker Von Miller leads the league with 12.5 sacks and needs 2.5 against Tennessee to tie Bruce Smith as the third-fastest to reach 75 in his career by doing so in his 85th game.

DeMarco Murray, who is second in the league with 1,043 rushing yards, hopes to have a big game against Denver after using the bye week to heal his sore toe. “It’s feeling a lot better,” he told the team’s website on Thursday. Defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, who hasn’t seen action since suffering a sprained foot on Nov. 27, did not practice Wednesday or Thursday but expects to play against the Broncos.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota has thrown multiple touchdown passes in eight consecutive games.
