Last week: 9 (-1)
I have a feeling the Broncos are going to be one of those teams with big home/road disparities in their records this season. They have a huge advantage at home, running the no huddle against defenses not used to playing in the thin air, but on the road, not only do they not have that advantage, but in noisy atmospheres like Atlanta last week, it’s tough to communication your signals on audibles at the line. Expect something like 7-1 or 8-0 at home and 3-5 or 4-4 on the road. The biggest test to their home dominance might come this week as they head home to face Houston.
RT Orlando Franklin: Allowed 1 quarterback hit on 45 pass block snaps, 1 penalty, run blocked for 50 yards on 5 carries
RB Willis McGahee: 113 yards (63 after contact) and 2 touchdowns on 22 carries, allowed 1 quarterback hurry on 5 pass block snaps, 2 catches for 11 yards on 2 targets
CB Champ Bailey: Allowed 1 completion for 16 yards on 2 attempts, 2 solo tackles, 2 assists
BEST OF MAXIM
Towards the end of Monday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, the Denver Broncos told rookie quarterback Brock Osweiler to warm up. You might be wondering, why would the Broncos even think about benching Peyton Manning? Don’t worry they weren’t going to bench him.
“I was going in for the Hail Mary,” Osweiler said. “I’m not sure what the dividing line was as far as...
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 [...]
Even while he was trying to tamp down expectations, Peyton Manning couldn't have envisioned this scene playing out.
Three times, the Broncos quarterback dropped back to pass. Three times, he threw into a seam near the numbers down the right side of the field.
Three times, a defensive back followed Manning's eyes, cut over and turned whatever small opening the quarterback...
For those of you who hate NFL replacement refs, this might be the video for you. During tonight's Atlanta Falcons/Denver Broncos game, a mini-fight broke out after a fumble recovery and it appears that one NFL replacement ref took one of the chin. While Atlanta defensive end Ray Edwards was engaged with Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson in an altercation, Edwards takes...
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 was watching the Broncos at Falcons game last night and I had a few thoughts. My first thought was I can't wait for Skip Bayless to say the Broncos should have kept Tim Tebow. Among other thoughts, I wondered if Willis McGahee could end up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.Let's examine.McGahee is 30 years old, and is playing in his ninth season in the NFL. I'm not counting...
Most of you are probably sick of hearing about the replacement official situation in the NFL by now, but it is only getting worse. The officiating crew lost control of Monday night’s game between the Broncos and Falcons on multiple occasions. Knowshon Moreno fumbled in the first quarter and it was ruled that the Falcons recovered, despite the fact that a Broncos player came out...
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...
Peyton Manning's second game with the Denver Broncos looked nothing like his first.
Manning threw interceptions on Denver's first three possessions, and the Broncos could not recover from the poor start in a 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.
In a 3-hour, 27-minute game marred by questionable decisions from replacement officials and long clock stoppages...
Running back Michael Turner has been charged with a DUI following Monday night's win over the Denver Broncos, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Turner was charged with speeding at around 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, and was booked and released on $2,179 bond. He is not expected to be suspended by the NFL, but perhaps Atlanta head coach Mike Smith will punish...
After a weekend full of exciting football matchups, I was excited to watch the Monday night game featuring the meeting of two undefeated teams, the Denver Broncos visiting the Atlanta Falcons. Ok, the league has only played one week, but Denver was impressive in beating Pittsburgh 31 to 19 at home on September 9 in the Sunday night game while Atlanta used a dominant second half in...
The Denver Broncos committed four turnovers in the first quarter and Matt Ryan's Atlanta Falcons took advantage with a 27-21 home victory.
