Denver Broncos power rankings from around the web. How did Monday’s 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons affect the Broncos’ power rankings? Let’s find out.

Was Peyton Manning really wearing a Broncos jersey? Looked like he could’ve been rocking the Colts’ horseshoe. Impressive.

Forgive the non sequitur, but the funniest thing I’ve heard in the last week came from Archie Manning, when I asked him the other day what Olivia Manning — Peyton’s mom — thought of that hilarious United Way spoof commercial that Peyton did on “Saturday Night Live” back in 2007? “She thought he was really banging balls off those kids,” Archie said in his ear-pleasing southern drawl. “I had to tell her those were Nerf balls with sound effects. She was pretty concerned about him beating up on those kids.”

The Broncos were the first team since 2002 to have four turnovers in the first quarter, including three Peyton Manning interceptions on the first three possessions, and they still only lost by six points.

Don’t dare do it. That is, wish for Tim Tebow to come back. Peyton Manning just had a bad quarter against Atlanta. He will be fine.

Monday night’s game was underwritten on the first three drives, when Peyton Manning tossed three picks. While brother Eli pulled off a comeback after three first-half picks of his own, he wasn’t on the road against one of the NFC’s best teams.

Turn the ball over on the road and you will usually get on the plane with a loss. Poor night from Manning and the Broncos.

BEST OF MAXIM
If Peyton Manning is sore, he's not saying. If his confidence is waning, he'd be the last to let anyone know.
Back on the practice field following his first loss as a Denver Bronco, Manning wouldn't offer much Wednesday when asked if the hits he took against Atlanta had any lasting impact.
''I don't really get into that,'' Manning said. ''...
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said that players in Denver Broncos offense are still in the process of getting to know each other and “all continue to learn” as he discussed the substandard offensive output — at least for an offense led by him — during Sunday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Discussing a [...]
When word got out last year that Peyton Manning was not going to play in 2011, I for one was devastated. I'm not a Colts fan just a huge NFL fan that knew I would miss the man, if for anything, his pure passion and knowledge of the game.I'm not going to throw a bunch of stats or anything to really make you think in this article, anyone who is a football fan knows, his stats...
The best way for the Houston Texans to defend Peyton Manning in Denver on Sunday may be to keep him off the field.
The Texans (2-0) dominated possession with a punishing running game in last week's 27-7 victory over Jacksonville.
Sure, the defense played well again, holding the Jaguars to nine first downs and 117 total yards. But thanks to the well-executed ball-control game...
HOUSTON Wade Phillips took a preemptive strike at the "Peyton Manning is finished" angle Thursday.
"I know it's going to be asked so I'm going to go ahead and make my statement," the Houston Texans defensive coordinator said. "Peyton Manning looks like the same guy he's always been."
No sense poking the bear, even if it does have a neck...
DREAMS CAN COME TRUE
Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has one thing in particular he wants to accomplish when facing the Broncos on Sunday: “I want to have No. 18 on my sack list."
I understand the economy is rough, but converting an old Peyton Manning Colts jersey into an Andrew Luck jersey isn’t a very good luck, as you see from the picture above.
It would have been better to just wear the Manning jersey and not alter it, or buy a Luck jersey.
Who converts a Manning jersey to a Luck jersey? #ThisRedneck @nflrt twitter.com/AndrewLucksHea…
HOUSTON (AP) -- The way Houston is dominating possession time, Peyton Manning might expect to spend lots of playing time on the sideline Sunday.
The Texans (2-0) kept the ball with a punishing running game in last week's 27-7 victory over Jacksonville. Sure, the defense played well again, holding the Jaguars to nine first downs and 117 total yards. But thanks to the well-executed...

Denver had a late second half rally to get with in a one possession game, but at the end of the game, the unspeakable, horrendous, first half play of the Broncos was too much for Manning and the team to overcome. As always, when the day is over we have to have a winner and a loser and yes, a hero and a zero.Let’s start with the zero today. It would be easiest to point the finger...
Michael Turner's DUI arrest last night after his Falcons beat Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos treated fans to another soothing yet empty team statement that tells nothing. Most NFL franchises have the routine down pat. For those that don't, This Given Sunday shares this template of what to say when the fertilizer hits the ventilator.
The [insert team name...
Arian Foster and the powerful Texans offense have not been broken a sweat through two games this season, but they will be grasping for some air at the Mile High.
Peyton Manning is back and is not better than ever since everybody feels as if they are an expert of some sort when breaking down arguably the greatest quarterback that has ever lived.
Manning struggled miserably against...
