The Denver Broncos have moved up one spot in ESPN's Power Rankings. After winning three straight games against the likes of the Chargers, Saints and Bengals, the Broncos currently sit at No. 8 in ESPN's latest Power Rankings. It's hard to argue against ESPN's rankings. The Broncos currently stand at 5-3 and of the teams with such a record, they are the highest ranking team on the list. They're even a spot ahead of the Patriots, who defeated the Broncos earlier this season rather convincingly. Teams that are currently above the Broncos on the Rankings are the Falcons at No. 1, the Texans at No. 2, the Bears at No. 3, Niners at No. 4, Giants at No. 5, Packers at No. 6 and Ravens at No. 7. The Broncos have a rather cupcake schedule to close out the season, as they have the easiest remaining schedule in the NFL. Seven of their remaining eight opponents are either at .500 or below. The one exception? A Week 15 visit to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. Be sure to check out other great articles at Broncos 101.

Kuper, Tamme, Thomas dinged-up for Broncos

The good news for Denver’s offensive line is that the injury sustained by guard Chris Kuper on Sunday is not as bad as it could have been.  The bad news is that he’ll likely miss a month of football due to a severely sprained left ankle. This is not the first time Kuper has had ankle woes, as a dislocated left ankle abruptly ended his 2011 season in January, causing him to miss...

Undrafted CBs make Broncos' Porter an afterthought

Just a month ago, Tracy Porter in street clothes on the Denver sideline was a welcome sight for any opposing quarterback. Now teams might actually prefer to see him back on the football field. Porter, who leads the league with three game-sealing interceptions since 2009, hasn't played in a month while dealing with problems related to a seizure he had over the summer. He hasn...

Manning now all-time comeback king

It was early November in Cincinnati. The Broncos quarterback dropped back to pass, found a receiver open for a 30-yard gain. Four plays later, Denver scored the winning touchdown and John Elway, in his 16th and final season, had the 39th game-winning drive of the 40 he would engineer in the fourth quarter or overtime. Fast forward 15 years to another November day in Cincinnati...

Former NFL running back LenDale White excited about Colorado legalizing Pot

You remember former NFL tailback (read: bust) and USC star LenDale White, correct? White was drafted by Tennessee and also played for the Denver Broncos. He was reunited with Pete Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks, but failed a drug test and got suspended. He was pretty excited about Colorado becoming the first state to legalize marijuana. He tweeted: “Weed is legal” followed...

Holliday makes fast impact for Broncos

The linebacker sprawled out and barely got a hand on Trindon Holliday. Not enough of a hand. Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. The 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati went down as the longest...

Denver Broncos at Carolina Panthers: Three Bold Predictions

If you strictly look at records going into the matchup between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers in Week 10 of the NFL season, this looks like an incredible mismatch between a 5–3 record versus 2–6. As with many situations in football, however, the numbers don’t even begin to tell the story.Carolina has been one of the most snake bitten teams in the 2012 season, as...
