Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez will play in the AFC Championship Game after winning his third Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos are currently tied for the NFL lead with a 21-3 record.
This season marks Sanchez’s second MVP award.
The other winner, Ben Roethlisberger, won in 2005 after the Steelers won their first title in franchise history.
Sanchez was a key contributor to the Broncos winning the Super Bowl in 2007, and his four-touchdown performance in the season-opening victory over the Baltimore Ravens earned him MVP honors.
Sanchez will be reunited with his brother, Aaron, who helped guide the Broncos to two Super Bowls in four years, but this will be Sanchez’s first MVP.
Sanchez has been one of the league’s best quarterbacks this season.
He completed 77 percent of his passes for 2,092 yards and 21 touchdowns.
Sanchez led the Broncos in completions and passer rating.
Sanchez is the first player to win MVP in two consecutive seasons since Steve Young in 2002 and 2001.
Sanchez’s teammates believe the Broncos can compete for the Superbowl this year.
Coach Gary Kubiak said he believes the team is on track to finish with a winning record for the first time since 2005.
Kubiak’s team has the league lead in passing efficiency and tied for third in passing touchdowns.
He said Sanchez has a strong arm, has a knack for finding holes in the defense and has been a consistent performer.
The team has a great chance to win this Super Bowl.
Kubz said the players are excited to get the chance to face Sanchez and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The win would clinch the AFC West for the Broncos, which is their second straight title.
Kubitz said he expects to see a lot of Sanchez’s play this season, which should help them get to the postseason.
The quarterback will be able to watch his teammates as they battle for the title.
Denver is tied for first place in the division with the Los Angeles Rams.
Kubzinski will have his team back in the playoff picture after the Chargers lost to the Carolina Panthers in Week 4.
The Chargers are 4-1 heading into Sunday’s game.
Kubs offense has been the reason why the Broncos are in the playoffs.
He’s scored 21 touchdowns and only one interception this season as the Broncos rank third in the NFL in scoring.
Kublitz said Sanchez’s ability to run the ball and make big plays is something the Broncos should benefit from.
Kubbets offensive coordinator Wade Phillips will need to take a look at his team after last week’s loss.
The Chiefs were the only team that could stop the Broncos offense this week, holding them to an average of just over 28 points.
The teams were tied in points scored after Week 6 and were tied again before that.
Kubas ability to throw the ball downfield is a concern for Kubbetts offense.
The defense allowed just 11 points on 28 plays in a win against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3.
Kubbons defense held the Chargers to 38.5 percent of the team’s offensive yards after halftime.
Kubls defense has allowed just 21.6 points per game this season and has given up more than 300 yards in three of its four games.
The 49ers are 1-3 with a 3-1 record heading into the playoffs and Kubitz is counting on the offense to keep them in the hunt.
