The NFL is back. Peyton Manning threw around 38 TDs and Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, and Julius Thomas were all studs. The Broncos RBs were a mess and Eric Decker struggled. Joe Flacco realized he doesn’t have any weapons as Ed Dickson dropped more passes than Manning had incompletions (not true). There are going to be a lot of overreactions to this game, but at least we have the GIFs to prove it all happened:
The night started with Adam Schefter attempting to do the Ray Lewis dance, but looking very white. VERY white.
I know NFL games have stepped up their security, but this is a little ridiculous.
Jacoby Jones gets taken out by his own player. We have all heard that you need to keep your head on a swivel, but this could not have been avoided. The only thing worse than getting knocked out of the game by the opposing team, it getting knocked ou...

Not quite yet. Although the game was incredible feat getting a little revenge on the Super Bowl champions, which entailed the 49-27 score, the most the Baltimore Ravens have ever given up in a game, there were a lot of “rookie” mistakes that still need to be resolved before the Broncos can be considered a Super Bowl caliber team, although they are one of the top contenders...
Welcome to the 2013 season, folks. The Broncos put it to the Ravens in the season opener on Thursday Night Football (or Sunday Night Football on Thursday Night or whatever it was called). I’ve already gone into some detail on some shining performances from the likes of Julius Thomas and other under-the-radar players. But, this […]The post Peyton Manning was a monster for the...

Here are four fantasy revelations from the Broncos' 49-27 thumping of the Ravens on Thursday, which included an NFL-record-tying performance from Peyton Manning.
1. Even in hindsight, it's hard to feel guilty about Manning's No. 8 ranking for the week
Of his nine previous season openers, Manning (462 yards passing, seven TDs vs. Baltimore) had thrown for 2,529 yards...
Peyton Manning won the Poster War. Manning was hanging in banner form back turned to his enemy pictured in the classic quarterback pose a glove missing from his right passing hand.
The other poster controversially hanging outside the stadium that Denver-area taxpayers and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen built was Joe Flacco. He represented the bane of what Denver fans wish for.
You know when you are playing Madden and you are unstoppable, well last night Peyton Manning has that feeling. At least in the second half. Believe it or not the Denver Broncos were actually losing at halftime 17-14. If you stopped watching the game after the first quarter when you saw the miscommunication between Peyton Manning and the Broncos wide outs, you would be stunned when...
Broncos fans have to be encouraged by the performance of Peyton Manning and the Denver offense, particularly in the second half of the opener Thursday night. Manning joined rare company in having thrown for seven touchdowns in a game – only five others have accomplished that feat.

The New York Giants quarterback downplayed Thursday night's brilliant performance by Peyton as only a younger sibling could.
“Yeah, he did okay...
The editor at the Columbus Dispatch obviously was asleep at the wheel when they were going through this article talking about the Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens game. The title of the article said “Elway Throws For Seven Touchdown passes” and the first two words of the article are “Peyton Manning.” Then the next paragraph starts with “Elway” and the following one...
The Broncos have three tailbacks competing for playing time. The
winner may be the one who best protects Peyton Manning.
Seriously, who? It wasn’t me, though I do think they’re quite tasty. This season has started out with a bang for sure but of all the bangs I expected, this wasn’t it. Julius Thomas led the offensive charge for the Denver Broncos on the opening night of the season for the Denver Broncos, scoring 2 touchdowns on passes of 23 and 24 yards and finished his fantastic night...
