There's plenty at stake for the Broncos when they face Tampa Bay this afternoon. A win isn't crucial as far as their simply making the playoffs is concerned, but it certainly could be in terms of their playoff positioning.

The Bucs bring a formidable offense to town. Their star rookie runner, Doug Martin has turned heads around the NFL and has caused many a General Manager to regret not selecting him in the draft. Martin should find scarce resistance this week, as the Broncos have not shown dominance against the run. Another Buc worth keeping an eye on is Peyton Manning's one-time tight end, Dallas Clark. Because the Broncos have a tendency to let TE's run roughshod over them, it's a fair bet that Clark gives them trouble.

Tampa will score in this game. Therefore it's up to Denver to score more. And they will.

The Broncos offense, which sputtered last week in Kansas City, will start the game hot. Tampa ranks dead last in the NFL in stopping the pass. Peyton will take advantage. Old number 18 will rack up three TD passes and about 330 yards on the day. Fantasy players will be pleased. Those scores will be divided equally between Decker, Thomas and Tamme.

Knowshon Moreno won't be asked to do much. He will rack up more yards as a receiver than as a runner today and score on a scramble out of the backfield.

Matt Prater will contribute two field goals in the day. His six, plus Manning's 21 and Moreno's seven will lead to a grand total of 34 points for the Broncos today.

Tampa will post 27.

Vegas has the Broncos as 7-point favorites. They're on the money. This one will be a push, gamblers. Broncos 34, Bucs 27
