After one year with Peyton Manning at quarterback the Denver Broncos quickly learned they were among the best in the NFL. It was all for nothing as the Broncos who had the best record in the AFC lost at the hands of the eventual Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens in their Divisional Playoff game. Year two with Peyton now holds a ton of expectations. Here are the teams the Broncos will take on in their quest for a Vince Lombardi Trophy in 2013.
