Denver Broncos @ Atlanta FalconsThe Denver Broncos (1-0) came away with a huge win in Peyton Manning's return to the NFL defeating the Steelers in front of the Bronco faithful.Peyton Manning was really missed by the NFL last season, it was great to see him out there audibling at the line and carving up the defenses like only Peyton can. The Falcons are down a Pro Bowl cornerback and Manning has to be excited for his first Monday night back. Expect a good game from him this week.Willis McGahee is the clear No. 1 back in the Denver backfield, but as the Broncos try to develop Manning and the receivers the run game is going to have to take a back seat for a few weeks. McGahee is a good guy to target as a trade partner in a few weeks.Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker both had seven targets and each came down with five of them. Just as we thought, Thomas had the big explosive play while Decker was a steady, consistent target. Brandon Stokley had two catches and should not be owned sti...

Well, Peyton Manning-mania is in full bloom in Colorado, as mysterious crop circles emerge in the image of the star Broncos QB. OK, they're not mysterious. But it would better if aliens had left them behind.
Turns out, Peyton Manning does have a favorite wide receiver in Denver - the one who's open.
That's the thing about the Broncos quarterback: He doesn't particularly play favorites. The four-time NFL MVP is so adept at spreading the wealth around that he's not choosy about his choices.
All he demands is a little bit of open space.

There’s a renewed sense of excitement at Random Sporting Goods Chain at Mile High Field. Unfortunately, there’s also scads of pigeon sh*t. That’s right. Some Broncos fans say they can’t enjoy watching Pey-Pey’s NeckAIDS heroics because they’re too busy avoiding the fecal spray of winged rats. Are the waves of pigeon droppings merely the first in a wave of plagues being...
Peyton Manning earned all the headlines and accolades in the Denver Broncos' 31-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Tracy Porter scored the play of the game.It's not that Manning's play was poor.In fact, it was most likely decent enough to earn him another commercial endorsement to add to his current TV ads for Papa John's Pizza, Buick and DirecTV.He threw...

NFP is seeing a lot of similarity to the Denver Broncos offense today and the one Peyton Manning ran when he was with the Indianapolis Colts. I’m not surprised, the Broncos would be fools not to do that. Heck, if they’d do it for Tim Tebow and the option, why wouldn’t they do it for Manning? [National Football Post]
The Atlanta Falcons coaches had some...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By CHARLES ODUM AP Sports Writer The Atlanta Falcons have embraced the no-huddle offense, and Matt Ryan thinks the master of the up-tempo attack will be on the other sideline Monday night.
Ryan says he has tried to pick up lessons on how to work the no-huddle by watching tapes of Denver quarterback Peyton Manning through his years with the Colts.

The Denver Broncos face a tough test in three days when they face the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. A win here could set the tone for very solid season, though a loss likely won’t mean much as the Falcons are dominant in their own house. [DenverBroncos.com]

As long as you didn't do something silly like draft Peyton Manning No. 3 overall because you like his Buick commercial or take a kicker in the 5th round because he went to your college, you still have a good shot at the title.Be active and pay attention and you have a huge advantage against most of your competitors.Last season Cowboys running back Felix Jones suffered a high...
Denver Broncos (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0)
If it wasn’t for Green Bay/Chicago, this would be the game of the week. Actually, scratch that, Green Bay/Chicago was an incredibly ugly game that should have been the game of the week, but wasn’t because teams only had 3 days to prepare and played much worse than they normally do. I hate this new one game on Thursday every week thing...
Denver, CO. Things could not have gone more perfectly for the Denver Broncos in week 1. A lot of the question marks this team had heading into the season seemed to be answered to varying degrees, and Peyton Manning proved he is far from washed up. The young receivers looked outstanding, as Demaryius Thomas running down the field in open space once again will haunt Pittsburgh...
The Falcons offense is riding high after putting 40 points on the Chiefs defense but the defense is dealing with the loss of Brent Grimes for the season. In week two, the Falcons will take on a team that made the playoffs last season and also added a Hall of Fame quarterback to their team. This game takes place on Monday and as Falcons fans know, Monday night has not been kind to...
Affiliate – Will the Steelers rebound after losing to the Denver Broncos in Week 1? They will host the Jets this weekend and are currently the favorites to win. Right now the NFL odds board lists Pittsburgh as a six-point favorite, even though they were beaten pretty bad by the Broncos and the Jets looked dominant against the Buffalo Bills.
Still, people realize the Steelers aren’t...
Last week: 10-6
Bears @ Packers
Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) @ Buffalo Bills (0-1) 1 p.m.
Both of these teams have high expectations for their season, especially the Bills after they rebuilt their defensive line. Last week they looked bad against the Jets on offense, defense and special teams. The good news is that they have no where to...
