New England Patriots
Last week: 5 (+0)
The Broncos sit at 5-3 and rank 2nd in yards per play differential and 9th in rate of sustaining drives differential with momentum on their side and they’ve done this despite one of the toughest schedules in the league thus far. From this point on, they have one of the league’s easiest schedules, with games against Tampa Bay, Carolina, San Diego, Oakland, Baltimore, Cleveland, and two against Kansas City. They could challenge the Patriots’ for the 2nd seed in the AFC, but the Patriots have the tiebreaker, so they have the advantage there. That would leave Peyton Manning the Broncos in the 3rd seed and possibly facing his replacement Andrew Luck and his greatest rival Tom Brady in the first 2 rounds of the playoffs.
QB Peyton Manning: 27 of 35 for 291 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions, 4 drops, 108.0 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 3 of 35 drop backs (2 of 3, 1 interception)
C Dan Koppen: Didn’t allow a pressure on 37 pass block snaps, run ...

As anyone who has watched any amount of television over the past few weeks knows, Peyton Manning appeared in a commercial for Papa John’s in which he creepily calls the pizza chain’s owner “Papa” instead of John for some reason, and attempts to get him to give away two million free pizzas. What you may not know, however, is that Manning has gotten into the pizza business...
Want more evidence of Peyton Manning’s superior intellect and business acumen hidden beneath that awe-shucks hillbilly exterior?
@darrenrovell: A week before Colorado legalizes marijuana, Manning acquires 21 Papa John’s franchises in the state. Guy can do no wrong.

Will the Arkansas economy improve with the next Arkansas football coach hire? That might sound crazy, but Peyton Manning has apparently helped the economy in Denver.
Well at least the Bengals were competitive in this one. For a while there it didn’t look great. After the 105 yard kickoff return to start the second half you start to wonder if this team will EVER get it together. Then they reel off 14 points to take the lead. Peyton Manning and the Broncos were on the ropes! This was their chance, and they let it slip away. Also, don’t forget...
Even the greatest quarterbacks can’t overcome bad teams, especially not in their rookie year. It’s something that I have always believed and will continue to believe until forever. Look at Peyton Manning, one of the most prolific passers of our time, and a number one overall draft pick. He came into a team that was legitimately terrible in 1998, and the Colts were capable of...
The NFL 2012 regular season has already been filled with a wide array of records, and more can be set this weekend. Television viewership is setting all time records while the league is setting a variety of records each and every week with new stars entering the league. However, some veteran players could find themselves moving up in the record books after this weekend’s slate...
Before the first NFL game kicked off in 2012 everything was sliced, diced and broken down for us by all the experts who raised questions and made predictions as well. Right now entering week 10 of the NFL season, many questions have been answered, some predictions have come true but currently, these three players not only exceeded expectations, they are leaders in their respective...
LAST WEEK: 9-4
SEASON: 85-46 (65%)
The Colts lost to the Jags already, but this seems like a much better team now. This is a game they need to win to be in the playoff hunt.
Eli Manning has had a really rough stretch, but the Bengals secondary is just what he needs to rebound. Expect some big numbers coming from this offense.
The Peyton Show is on the road this week as the (5-3) Denver Broncos go into Carolina to take on Cam Newton and the (2-6) Panthers. On paper, this game doesn’t appear to be close as the Broncos have been rolling lately, with Peyton Manning coming back to MVP form. It also brings former Panthers head coach John Fox back to take on his former team for the first time since being canned...
Last week: 9 (+2)
If the playoffs were to start today, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts would travel to the Denver Broncos to play Peyton Manning, who through 8 games, has exactly the same amount of passing yards as his replacement Luck, 2404. The Colts are 4-1 in their last 5, since Chuck Pagano had to leave the team to undergo treatment for Leukemia, with that...
