The game on Sunday gave me gray hair. At 24 years old, I was pulling them out, one by one. Although seeing the Dallas Cowboys on our schedule didn’t scare me at first, by the time it came to a Matt Prater field goal as the clock ticked down, I was scared.
For those of you who were unfortunate…actually, fortunate (no more new gray hair) to miss it, the Denver Broncos overcame a couple deficits to beat the Dallas Cowboys 51-48. Danny Trevathan celebrates his interception against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday (Photo Credit: Denver Broncos/AP)
“I thought this was probably our best character victory as far as coming from behind,” Head Coach John Fox said. It’s tough to win in this league on the road. Very tough. We’ve gotten to 2-0 on the road and we count our blessings.”
Peyton Manning threw his first interception of the season, also marking the first interception out of 244 throws. Manning passed Dan Marino for the second-most passing yards in NFL history, finishing the day 33-of-42 for 414 yards, he now has 61,371 in his career, according to denverbroncos.com
Though a win is still a win, it was the team’s closest victory of the season and snapped a 15-game streak of wins by seven or more points.
We all remember linebacker Danny Trevathan, who had an interception the first game of the year, but was so excited, he dropped the ball right before the goal line to start celebrating…well, he got his second chance last night, picking off Tony Romo.
“I was baiting him but I saw (Derek) Wolfe rushing him and put his hands up. Romo threw it and I felt like, man, it’s that time. Hopefully I don’t drop the ball when I get in the end zone this time. But you know I fell to the ground, so forget it.”
There is only one more game to play until we get defensive tackle Von Miller back, pending that he doesn’t get into anymore trouble. The Broncos play the Jacksonville Jaguars at Sports Authority field this Sunday, kickoff is at 2:05 MDT.

Peyton Manning is a machine folks, the guy now has 19 touchdowns in just 4 1/2 games. Manning even rushed for a touchdown today. The last rushing touchdown of his was 62 games ago when he was a Colt. He is the best quarterback to ever play the game. If you have an opportunity to […]
The 5-0 Denver Broncos have already been installed as 28 point favorites over the 0-5 Jacksonville Jaguars next week in what will be the largest point spread (and biggest mismatch) in NFL history. The Broncos may score 12 touchdowns before the Jaguars complete a forward pass. It's going to be such a blowout, it'll make Ohio State vs Florida A&M look like an instant...
Peyton Manning can add the story of the secret naked bootleg to his long list of I can’t believe he just did that moments.
Manning of course fulled everyone when he faked a handoff, and ran left towards the pylon untouched for a touchdown. What we didn’t know until after the game was that Manning didn’t call the play in the huddle, and his teammates had no idea he was keeping...
Arlington, Texas — In a game which featured 99 points, 1,039 total yards, and NFL records broken, it was a key defensive interception by the Denver Broncos to set up a 28 yard field goal from Matt Prater at the end of regulation in Denver’s 51-48 victory over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday.

Knowshon Moreno continued his breakout season on Sunday in the Broncos’ win. Fellow running back LeSean McCoy wasn’t impressed.
McCoy, who leads the NFL in rushing through five games, tweeted back at ESPN’s Skip Bayless on Sunday night saying that Moreno “sucks” in the message. The Broncos’ running back saw the tweet after the 51-48 win and tweeted back in response, choosing...
Great football teams beat the opponents they’re supposed to beat and limit mistakes against other top-tier teams. Then, there’s the Denver Broncos.
Against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, the Broncos were able to absorb the best the Cowboys had to offer, yet it still wasn’t enough for Dallas to overcome the Broncos’ offense.
Peyton Manning had an off day too. He threw...
The Denver Broncos are starting to remind people of the 2007 New England Patriots. After hanging 51 points on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Peyton Manning and company are now averaging an incredible 46 points per game. The Patriots were “only” averaging 36 points per game after five games in ’07. Things get much easier […]
If you’re an athlete and you’re on Twitter, chances are the social media site hasn’t always brought out the best in you.
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy caused a stir online on Sunday afternoon when he voiced his opinion about Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno, stating very eloquently that he thinks he “sucks.” While the Broncos and Cowboys were in the midst of a shootout...
While everyone on the Dallas Cowboys defense piled on Knowshon Moreno at the goal line, Peyton Manning faked out everyone by moseying in for his first rushing touchdown in five years.
Manning already had three TD passes in the first half and — after this third-and-goal jog — the Broncos quarterback even did a little fist pump as he crossed the goal line.
The undefeated Denver Broncos are set to play host to the winless Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and it appears as though the Broncos are quite confident.
Following a riveting victory in Dallas, this tweet was sent out by the Broncos early Monday and the Jaguars were none too pleased about its message.
Although Jacksonville may get pushed around on the football field...
Tweet In case you haven’t been paying attention, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos offense has looked like something out of a game of Madden over the first five weeks of the season. Up next in the Broncos line of fire is the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, who have in contrast looked like one of the […]
