DENVER (BleacherReport) — The Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams face unique challenges in 2013 as they endeavor to win an NFL title.

For the Rams, it’s going to be a struggle just getting into the playoffs.

The NFC West is arguably the toughest division in football this year. The San Francisco 49ers won the division by a slight margin over the Seattle Seahawks, and both teams figure to be players in this year’s postseason scrum.

Even the Arizona Cardinals, under new head coach Bruce Arians, can’t be taken lightly.

Still, the Rams posted the best divisional record of all four teams in 2012, going 4-1-1, and general manager Les Snead has done a brilliant job bringing in players that can help his team continue to improve.

For the Broncos, getting into the playoffs should be easy, as the AFC West is perhaps the weakest division in the league.

However, with Von Miller’s six-game suspension, and a suspect offensive line, it remains to be seen what kind of impact the Broncos will have once they get into the postseason tournament.

Kickoff is at 6 p.m. MST at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
