1. Denver might be able to win games without relying heavily on the passing game.

Compared to Peyton Mannings’ 7 touchdown passes in week one, the first half against the New York Giants did not include any of that action: it only included one rushing touchdown. Wes Welker only went 3 for 8 in the game and for a while it seemed the catches easily made in week one weren’t possible in week two. With Knowshon Moreno making two touchdowns as well as being the rushing leader of 93 yards, it is comforting to know that Manning has options on the ground.
2. Trindon Holliday’s performance last season wasn’t just a fluke.
In his fifth overall special teams return touchdown it would appear that the Denver Broncos stole Holliday around this time last year from the Houston Texans. Judging by his 81 yard touchdown I’m sure they’re regretting that decision.
3. Having to accept a Champ Bailey-less defense isn’t so bad.
Denver will have to face this probably sooner rather than later and the corners have stepped up big time to prove we they can still succeed. Chris Harris had yet another interception, tying Bailey’s record for having a pick in two consecutive games in 2009.Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also had an interception and a few memorable tackles. Without Bailey the Broncos still lead the NFL right now with six interceptions.
4. When Denver Broncos Analyst, Brandon Moore, described the team’s defense as “eviscerating,” which Merriam Webster Dictionary defines as: to take out the internal organs of an animal, I think they’re doing something right.

Danny Trevathan, Chris Harris and Duke Ihenacho were the leading tackles including a sack from Trevathan. The Denver D limited the Giants to only one third down success out of 11 attempts as well as just one red zone success.
5. The Denver company needs to stop making dumb mistakes.
Denver had 13 penalties counting for 132 yards. The Giants had only four with 16 yards. This is the most penalty yardage ever for a winning team. On the bright side at least their talent outweighed this but facing a different opponent and these penalties could have deeply impacted the game result.
