Poisonous messages laced the Broncos' insatiable quest for peak performance.
The toxins first leaked in from the wise guys in Las Vegas who made the Broncos a whopping 26 ½-point favorites on gameday.
The given was the Broncos would beat the Jacksonville Jaguars. The question was at what point in the game the Broncos would cover.
The Broncos did win. Even if they may have played one of their worst games and Jacksonville played one of its best the Broncos had enough margin for error to prevail 35-19 on a perfectly cool fall afternoon Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
But they didn't win.
Peyton Manning threw two early touchdown passes to set another NFL record and Knowshon Moreno set a personal record with three second-half touchdown runs.
The Broncos improved to 6-0 as expected. The Jaguars fell to 0-6 as every breathing human presumed. What surprised many however was the Broncos had to sweat. Far as the gamblers who took Jacksonville and the points are co...

As Manning prepares to lead his Denver Broncos into Indianapolis next Sunday, now is the perfect time to revisit the fact and fiction of one of the most controversial...
Peyton Manning is playing like a man possesed this year and tomorrow it should only get better. Peyton has 20 passing touchdowns this season already and only one interception.

When Peyton Manning retires, he will have only Johnny Unitas to contend with for the honor of greatest quarterback in Indianapolis (or Baltimore) Colts history. The numbers speak for themselves. Manning is probably the best regular season quarterback in NFL history, and he has a Super Bowl ring to go along with his incredible statistics. […]
As Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning gets ready to travel to Indianapolis to take on his former team, Colts owner Jim Irsay told USA TODAY Sports that Manning advised him to draft Andrew Luck prio to his released in 2012.
“He said, ‘You’ve got to take Andrew,’” Irsay said. “‘You have to. You’re crazy if you don’t.’”
Manning certainly helped Irsay make the right...
I’m not a big believer in bulletin board material, but if Peyton Manning ever needed any to motivate him just a bit for this weekend’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, Jim Irsay has provided it. The Colts owner is busy…Read more →
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Jacksonville was never going to be too much of a problem, except for those who love favorites and bet on the Denver Broncos against the biggest underdog in NFL history.
The bookies in Vegas were always a bit uncomfortable about the 27-point spread, though even they wouldn't have given odds that the Broncos would be reduced...
Peyton Manning threw for two scores and Knowshon Moreno ran for
three to lead the Denver Broncos to a tougher-than-expected 35-19

DENVER (AP) -- For an uncomfortably long time Sunday, it was a matter of "if" for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, not "how many."
Their supposedly lopsided matchup against the winless Jacksonville Jaguars turned into quite a tussle for much of a surreal afternoon. Not until Knowshon Moreno ran for his third touchdown did the Broncos have any sense of security...
The Colts have to regroup quickly with unbeaten Denver coming to town next weekend, and that's just the way they seem to like it.
Less than 24 hours after an uncharacteristically sub-par performance at San Diego, coach Chuck Pagano started to turn his attention toward the return of Peyton Manning with the surging Broncos.
Pagano couldn't quite explain what happened in Monday...
1. Denver Broncos - Peyton Manning could have thrown for six touchdowns against the Jags, but he decided to hand off three goal line plays to Knowshon Moreno. No matter how the Broncos score, they are far and away the best offense in the NFL. I do have some questions about the defense, which is what cost them in the AFC Divisional Playoff game a year ago. They will get better...
