Eric Decker didn't make excuses. He didn't hide from the media because he dropped a couple of passes.
The Broncos' fourth-year receiver who had 85 catches last season admitted disappointment in his latest personal performance.
"Greatly" he said at his locker Monday. "The TD and the one across the middle — just ridiculous. Painful."
By TD Decker was referring to a potential touchdown pass he dropped from Peyton Manning near the left corner of the end zone in the third quarter of the Broncos' 49-27 victory Thursday night against Baltimore. Nothing hurt there for on the next play Manning hit Wes Welker for a 2-yard touchdown pass.
There also was a skinny slant drop by Decker late in the third quarter that would have given the Broncos a first down.
"For me it's more about focus than anything attention to detail" Decker said. "All of that will carry over to the game."

There was a lot of skepticism going into Thursday’s game about the Denver Broncos defense. With Von Miller suspended, and Elvis Dumervil in a Raven’s jersey, I think people were fearing the unknown since Dumervil and Miller were such household names last year, combining for 27.5 sacks.

As stated in my season preview, the Peyton vs Eli sibling rivalry record is 2-0 Peyton. The first matchup in 2006 at New York was a 26-21 victory, the second at Indianapolis in 2010 38-14. The last time the Broncos and the Giants faced off was in 2009 with a 26-6 blowout by the Broncos. Just looking at history it’s pretty obvious who are the favorites in this matchup.

''It was a young mistake. I was just in the moment,'' Trevathan said. '...
Admit it. At some point in our pasts, we all considered the possibility that superheroes may actually walk among us, but as we grew older we realized the imaginary beings of comic books and movies didn’t truly exist, leaving us with no choice but to compare our own personal heroes to the likes of fiction. What better to compare them to than NFL quarterbacks, some of the most talented...

A record-setting performance has Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos flying high as they roll into MetLife Stadium. Eli Manning can't say the same as he and the New York Giants look to get back on track after a disheartening season-opening effort.
