Denver, CO. Although the Denver Broncos have lost more games than they have won through five weeks of the regular season, they have to feel ok about where they are at this point. 2-3, losing to three of the best teams in the NFL, and just one game behind the leader of the AFC West. If you are a glass half full sort of fan, you could point out how this Broncos team has been very...
