To Jeff Rodgers a roster is a puzzle. The Broncos' special-teams coordinator tinkers tweaks. He looks at the list of heights weights and positions not as classifications but as possibilities. To Rodgers Joel Dreessen isn't a tight end. He's 6-foot-4 and 245 pounds of mass agile enough strong enough fast enough. Kayvon Webster is 5-11 and 198 his position as a cornerback irrelevant. Can he block? What's his speed? What else can he do? Then there's David Bruton. Until last weekend when he ran a fake punt 35 yards from scrimmage avoiding a Denver three-and-out offensive series late in the third quarter against Jacksonville you might never have heard of him. Technically he's a safety but he's played only 39 snaps at that position this season. In reality he's a puzzle piece. A very important one. The puzzle when put together properly is the Broncos' special teams a unit that this season has been the best in the NFL. Sure there have been the eye-pop...

NFL Week 7: Manning Returns to Indy

Seattle 34 Arizona 22 - Well, yesterday I told you I liked the Arizona Cardinals to cover the 6.5-point spread and the under of 40 against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football.  I went full Brittany Spears on that one because oops, I did it again.  Seattle smashed Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer and the Cardinals, 34-22.  Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with...

Denver Broncos: 2013 Week 7 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 1 (+0) Record: 6-0 I can’t blame the Broncos for not getting up for the Jaguars before a big game with the Colts on deck. Even still, they won by double digits. What’s been especially impressive about the Broncos’ start is how they’ve done this without winning the turnover battle, as their turnover margin is zero on the season. This is in spite of the fact that...

The Broncos and Colts will be the most watched regular season game in the history of the NFL. Week 7 picks.

Where to start in the Broncos and Colts game?  Manning comes back to Indy in the middle of a controversy with the Colts mouthy Owner.  The Broncos are on pace to break all of the offensive record.  But, Andrew Luck and the Colts are no push overs.  The Colts are putting together a solid season and look to be headed back to the playoffs. At the end of the day, the move to Denver...

Indy veterans hope to slow down Manning's Broncos

Robert Mathis and Reggie Wayne have seen Peyton Manning's high-flying act. As longtime teammates, they played a part in Manning's gaudy stats, record-breaking quests and even the distracting pursuits of perfection. This week, as outsiders, they will put all that inside knowledge to use as Andrew Luck and the Colts try to derail Manning and the unbeaten Broncos. '&...

Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts: 3 Not-So-Bold Predictions

Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts: Week 7 NFL Pick

Denver Broncos (6-0) at Indianapolis Colts (4-2) The Broncos have failed to cover in their last 2 instances, barely winning in Dallas and sleepwalking to a 16 point win over the Jaguars at home. However, the odds makers continue boosting the spread on them as if they are some kind of perfect, invulnerable opponent. I never bought that they could continue this level of play all season...

Jim Irsay Owes Peyton Manning Some Respect!

“The Return of Peyton Manning to Indianapolis” story that will eat up the media coverage until the game on Sunday Night Football has taken a sour, snippy, soap-opera turn and before it gets better, Jim Irsay has to inset his foot into his mouth. It’s on. It’s sooooooo on now! We still have four days until Peyton Manning will return to his original NFL home as a horse of a...

What are the odds the 9-0 Chiefs and Broncos play in Week 11?

Only two unbeaten teams are still standing in the NFL, and both are in the AFC West. That means that even if the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs continue to tear the opposition apart, something will eventually have to give. "Eventually" is actually capped at Week 11, because that's when the Broncos and Chiefs will meet in Denver.  If the Broncos and Chiefs...

The Broncos are off to maybe the best start in NFL history, whereas the Colts are 4-2 coming off a tough loss against the Chargers. The match features a battle between the young...

ZB Game of the Week: Broncos at Colts

This is one of the games you circle on your calendar when the schedule comes out. Peyton Manning returns home to Indy to play against the guy who replaced him. It would have been an even better storyline if the Colts had handled the Chargers on Monday and gone into the contest just one game behind Denver for the conference lead.
