If this was a preview of January for the Denver Broncos, it’ll be a long, sustained one indeed.
The Broncos dominated the New Orleans Saints Sunday night, in all phases, for four quarters.
The defense was stifling, holding Drew Brees and the Saints to under 200 yards offense until the game was far out of hand late in the fourth quarter. The special teams was clutch, not allowing Darren Sproles to wreak havoc while making key field position plays. The offense, led by Peyton Manning, was dynamic, as Broncos rushers Willis McGahee and Ronnie Hillman combined for over 200 rushing yards and Manning threw three touchdowns. Denver made the Saints look soft as they rolled over New Orleans 34-14 in Week 8 NFL action.
The Broncos improved to 4-3 with the win, taking sole possession of first place in the AFC West as they head to a pair of road games at Cincinnati and at Carolina.
BEST OF MAXIM
You all know the drill by now, I’m going to give you some players you should try to get while their value is still low. I try to also include a player that could be a potential trade option, but most of the time you won’t own that player. If you can’t figure out a player that is in the same “tier”, then never hesitate to post a question(or answer one) in the forums.
Anyone who pays attention to sports had to know that replacement referee costumes would be popular this Halloween. However, you would have to be pretty bold to be an NFL star and go down that road, but Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas clearly had no problem doing that recently. As you can see from the photo above that Peter Burns shared with us on Twitter, Thomas went with...
Peyton Manning. 6'5", laser-rocket arm...Papa John's Pizza franchisee.
Peyton Manning is continuing to show his commitment to Denver on and off the field, as he was recently named a franchisee within the Papa John's Pizza brand. As the newest franchisee of Papa John's -- which is the official pizza sponsor of the NFL -- Manning, in partnership with Papa John...
The Denver Broncos are relieved Peyton Manning wasn't seriously injured on a hard hit by New Orleans Saints defensive end Martez Wilson.
The Broncos are expected to have the NFL look at the play from Sunday night's game in which Manning banged his right thumb on Wilson's helmet just before the crown of that helmet hit the quarterback in the chin.
Although no flag was...
The Denver Broncos can ill-afford an injury to Peyton Manning. And Peyton Manning surely doesn't want to be sidelined again after missing time due to his surgically repaired neck. Fortunately, his thumb is doing alright after being struck by the helmet of New Orleans Saints defensive end Martez Wilson.
According to a report released by the Associated Press, Manning&...
About half the season is already over in the NFL and now is a good point to sort of reflect on the season.To take a look at some teams that are in good shape, and some that aren't in good shape. Right now, I want to focus on the Denver Broncos and talk about them for a little bit.The Broncos are one of the teams that are looking really good, and should continue to look even better...
NO FUN LEAGUE
The Broncos brought in Brandon Stokley to provide veteran leadership, and that's exactly what he did for Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker on Sunday.
The dinged-up thumb. The New Orleans defense.
Neither came close to slowing down Peyton Manning on Sunday night.
Despite banging his throwing thumb on an opponent's helmet in the second quarter, Manning passed for 305 yards and three scores, led a pair of 90-plus-yard touchdown drives and easily outplayed Drew Brees to lead the Denver Broncos to a 34-14 victory over the Saints...
Drew Brees came to Denver and surpassed John Elway. He was no match for Peyton Manning.
Brees welcomed back New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt from his bounty banishment by extending his NFL record to 50 straight games with a touchdown toss, the 300th of his career. He added another just before the 2-minute warning that surpassed Elway for sixth on the career list.
