Most years, the Denver Broncos couldn't scramble out of the doors fast enough for a little rest and relaxation on their bye week. That's hardly the case this season.
The NFL's most surprising team at 6-0, the Broncos are hesitant to put football on the back burner for a weekend, lest they lose their edge.
They'd prefer to keep their foot on the gas after a convincing 34-23 win over San Diego on Monday night.
Why would they want to get away from this?
The bye almost comes at an inconvenient time for the Broncos, who are quite mindful of keeping their momentum after building a 3½-game lead over the Chargers in the AFC West.
