Last week: 5 (-1)
Right now, this is one of 6 upper echelon teams right now. They could be higher, but I’m putting Atlanta ahead of them because they won head-to-head and have a 2 game better record than them, but I think if these teams were to have a rematch this week, I’d probably pick Denver. Denver only moves down because I was incredibly impressed Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers were previously below the Broncos. Still, I’m very, very impressed with this team right now and would not be shocked in the least if they won the Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning has been doing his job for a long time, but the past year has to have been the hardest of his brilliant career.
Overcoming two neck surgeries within a year, extensive rehabilitation, and leaving his longtime home Indianapolis for Denver had to be challenging.
Manning doesn't want to hear excuses, he hasn't made any; and because of that, the Broncos sit...
Peyton Manning says he’s not trying to do the things he did at 28. Once again, he’s trying to fake everyone out. Manning is an MVP and Comeback Player of the Year candidate. The latter is pretty much a wrap.
It’s true that he isn’t trying to do the same things at 28; he had 49 touchdowns and a passer rating of 121.1. That would be ridiculous.
Maybe he was talking about...
Even though the Denver Broncos placed running back Willis McGahee on injured reserve, they put him on the designation to return list in hopes that he’ll be back in time for the AFC Championship game. Of course they’re being optimistic that they’ll make it that far this season.

Willis McGahee has been placed on recallable injured reserve by the AFC West-leading Denver Broncos.
The Broncos (7-3) put their 31-year-old running back on the list Wednesday, meaning he can return to practice after missing the final six regular-season games and play in a game after missing two more.
That would bring Denver up to the AFC title game.
McGahee tore the medical collateral...
If only Lance Ball could have found the umpire faster, Matt Prater might just have written his name in the record books.
The Denver Broncos had crossed midfield and Prater was all set to try a 67-yard field goal right before halftime in their 30-23 win over San Diego, but the clock ran out before the umpire could spot the ball for Peyton Manning to spike.
Oh well, maybe next time...
With every free agent running back and his brother wanting to fill the void in Denver’s backfield, the Broncos decided to workout just one free agent, Steve Slaton.
Per Mike Klis of the Denver Post:
The Broncos worked out former Houston Texans running back Steve Slaton on Tuesday morning. As of Tuesday evening, the Broncos had not yet signed the former West Virginia...
