The only similarity between the 2011 Denver Broncos and this year’s squad is that both are playoff teams. After an 8-8 regular season last year, only the most dedicated of Tim Tebow fans actually believed Denver had a shot at making it to the Super Bowl. This season, the 11-3 Broncos have won nine straight and are heading for a first round bye. Unlike Tebow, Peyton Manning makes them a legitimate championship contender. Most of us can agree that the Broncos are a more dangerous team with Manning under center, but nothing compares to the hype that is known as Tebowmania, right? According to Demaryius Thomas, Manning has created more buzz. “It’s not quite the same,” Thomas explained after Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens when asked about last year’s team. “We’ve got Peyton Manning, so of course it’s different.

Beaten by their own offense, Ravens lose to Denver, 34-17...

On a day when a Baltimore defense inundated with injury was able to give Peyton Manning everything he could handle and more, the Ravens offense did not show up like the cavalry they were supposed to be. In fact, Flacco and company gave points away to Denver. It was a disgraceful performance. It wasn't all on Joe Flacco, although Joe admitted after the game the pick-6 he...

Bill Belichick Made Right Decision to Go for It on Fourth-and-Short, No Matter How Badly Patriots Executed

You’d think it was Peyton Manning and the Colts out there with the season on the line. It wasn’t. It was the 49ers in a late-season slugfest, in a game the Patriots had no business winning but had somehow fought their way back into.
