(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer It's the same drill in almost every football game: The ball hits the ground, players follow. Fingers get pried, eyes gouged, sometimes worse. Eventually, a referee dives into the pile trying to figure out who's at the bottom with his arms around the ball.
So far in 2012, that player is almost certainly not a member of the Denver Broncos.
Over their first five games, the Broncos have scrapped for 13 fumbles - seven by their own offense, six when the defense is on the field. Of those 13, the Broncos have recovered two.
''It's correctable,'' coach John Fox said of the Broncos' growing turnover problem. ''But you've got to get it corrected.''
Fox said they'll put more focus on that starting Thursday, when they return to practice to get ready for next Monday's game at San Diego.
Part of Denver's turnover problem is luck, part of it is not bei...

Is there an athlete out there who does more commercials than Peyton Manning? I really don't think there is. From Oreos to Gatorade to Buick, Manning is front and center in the world of athlete endorsements. We decided to compile the "Top 10" Manning commercials. Some, quite frankly, are awful, where others do a great job. With Manning being the only constant...
They say the shortest path to the unemployment line is poor play. In Tony Carter’s case, however, it may be his warped sense of “humor.”
On Monday night, the Broncos cornerback was at a local movie theater and tweeted a reference to the July shooting in Aurora, Colo. that left 12 dead and 58 injured.
“At a late night movie in Denver yall pray for me!” Carter tweeted, via...
Denver, CO. The NFL is full of stats, as anything and everything that happens on the gridiron is tracked without fail. Numbers rule this game, and many times it is these numbers that explain why a given team is not living up to expectations, or on the other hand, why another given team is surprising everyone and getting the job done. A lot of the stats truly do end up being somewhat...
The Denver Broncos suffered one key injury during Sunday’s
loss to the New England Patriots. Veteran linebacker Keith Brooking sustained a
concussion in the third quarter and was not able to return.
It’s not clear if Brooking will be available this weekend or
when he’ll be able to return, as he’ll have to first pass the National Football
League’s concussion tests...
Nobody has been better than the Denver Broncos in the fourth quarter of games this season. They've scored 58 points and allowed just six, and they haven't been scored upon in the final quarter since Week 1. They've figured out how to manage the endgame. It's the rest of the game they have yet to decipher. "I'd like to start it the other way, to start...
There are some really tough match ups this week that don’t favor wide receivers that normally are consistent in their fantasy scoring. Sorting through the tough schedule, these are the three guys that will be on top for fantasy scoring in a PPR format league in Week 6.Demaryius Thomas – Denver BroncosTo start the season there were many question marks surrounding the Denver...
All fans believe they are the most devoted group. Fans of the Denver Broncos recently had the opportunity to speak with Rant Sports outside Sports Authority Field as part of the Bud Light NFL Tailgate Series about their Orange and Blue pride. Their fervor is just as you would expect prior to game time.
Save for one shaky performance, Peyton Manning has done most everything the Denver Broncos expected when they signed him to a lucrative deal in the offseason.
He can't do much if Denver can't hang onto the football, though.
Manning hopes his rough recent history versus the host San Diego Chargers doesn't play a role when the turnover-prone Broncos look to even the division...
Last year, about this time, it happened. The underperforming Denver Broncos removed Kyle Orton from his position as starter and anointed Tim Tebow to his spot. Without getting into details, we know the story from there. With Tebow at quarterback the Broncos reeled off a number of impressive late game victories and found themselves in the playoffs … Continue reading »
