Broncos hoping week off doesn't stop momentum

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- More than 15 years later, the words "Jacksonville Jaguars" still hit like a cold splash of water around Denver, especially during playoff time.

And if you want to bring back bad memories for Peyton Manning or any of his former teammates, ask them about what happened against Pittsburgh in the 2005 playoffs.

In both instances, the Broncos and Manning roared into the AFC playoffs with top seeding and a week of rest after a bye.

In both instances, the Broncos and Manning were unceremoniously dumped by a team that came into the game as a touchdown-plus underdog.

Which brings up a good question this week in Denver: Does the team that comes into the divisional round fresh off the bye week have an advantage over the team that comes in off the high of a victory the week before?
