ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Before the season begins, almost every team puts these words near the top of a long list of goals: ``Win the division.''

That's all but a foregone conclusion in Denver, though when the Broncos wrap up the AFC West, there won't be much of a celebration. They didn't bring Peyton Manning to town just to win division titles and, given their six-game winning streak and the soft schedule ahead, this is a team that has every right to be thinking about bigger goals.

Says Broncos coach John Fox: ``Our goals are still alive ... and that is, win our division and get into the tournament.''

A win over the Buccaneers (6-5) on Sunday or a San Diego loss to Cincinnati will wrap up the division for Denver (8-3).
