As the Denver Broncos prepare for the third week of the preseason against the St. Louis Rams a lot has changed and a lot of differences should be seen Saturday.
The main difference is that the game is expected to look like a regular season game. Coach John Fox wants the starters to come back into the game after the half. This is the last opportunity for players to show their worth and go full speed because they can have enough time to heal for the regular season if any common, but not serious, injuries occur.
Peyton Manning said that “from an offensive standpoint we’ve worked on things in training camp and you want to see guys taking it from the practice field to the playing field.”
Some of those things being worked on this past week was controlling the ball and offensive coordinator Adam Gase said that last week against Seattle “for us to have three fumbles in the first half was totally unacceptable. We’ve been working on it again, and the point of emphasis has to be that we cannot...

The Denver Broncos come into the 2013 season facing some problems with their defense. There is one thing that could help this situation. Peyton Manning could control the football game. He has to increase the team’s time of possession. Manning has to keep the Broncos defense off the field. He has to control the pace of play that would allow the Broncos to control the games that...
Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker returned to practice on a limited basis, but he's not expected to play again this preseason. Welker suffered a mild ankle sprain last week against the Seattle Seahawks, but coach John Fox doesn’t want to take any chances.
Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe must feel like he dodged a bullet last week. After being strapped to a board and taken by ambulance to the hospital, fans and teammates geared for the worst - a career ending, perhaps even life threatening spine injury.
Less than a week ago, Denver Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe was being strapped to a stretcher before being taken from a football field in an ambulance. There was initially concern that Wolfe suffered a potentially devastating neck injury, but he was eventually cleared to return home with his teammates. Now, having survived an early-season scare, Wolfe is hoping that he'...
Denver Broncos wide receiver got slapped with a $7,875 fine for grabbing and twisting a facemask while covering on a punt return in the first quarter last Saturday at Seattle, reports NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
It was the only fine levied from the game that Seattle controlled, winning a lopsided 40-10 (the high-low blocks that led to Derek Wolfe’s neck injury incurred no fines).

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball stood out for all the wrong reasons last weekend.
Denver's young running backs want to atone for their big blunders when the Broncos host the St. Louis Rams on Saturday night in what's essentially the final dress rehearsal for the regular season.
Hillman fumbled when he tried...
Greatness is rare in the NFL. It’s just a function of the sport. It’s really hard to put together a team of 53 guys that’s significantly better than 31 other teams of 53 guys. It’s not like basketball where you can luck into three great players who give you dominion over the league for half a decade.
You need almost everything to break your way to reach that level. You need...

The 2012 New England Patriots and the 2013 New England Patriots are two completely different teams, yet there are few exceptions; with Aaron Hernandez, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, and Danny Woodhead gone, and a Rob Gronkowski that's made of glass, how successful will Brady be in leading the Patriots to the postseason or beyond? It isn't very likely that the Patriots will make...
