(Justin Edmonds/Getty Images) 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.
