Dec. 16, 2014

BOISE, Idaho - The NFL regular season is winding down but after Week 15 numerous Boise State alumni are in the hunt for playoff spots.

Ryan Clady and the Denver Broncos downed San Diego, 22-10, Sunday to clinch the AFC West. The Broncos, at 11-3, can clinch a first-round bye with a win this Sunday at Cincinnati.

However, former Boise State safety George Iloka and the Bengals, leading the AFC Central at 9-4-1, will be aiming to maintain their half-game lead over Pittsburgh and Baltimore, both 9-5.
