He leads all running backs this season with 8 rushing TDs. He's rushed for 413 yards at an average of 4.3 YPC. Ever since McGahee went down with an injury in 2012, Moreno has been the guy behind Manning. His numbers last year were outstanding. Filling in for McGahee, he had 692 total yards from scrimmage and 4 TDs. And fortunately for the Broncos, he's...

Denver Broncos: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#2)

Last week: 1 (-1) Record: 6-1 Remember when people thought the Broncos were definitely going 16-0 because they looked so dominant for the first 4 weeks. It was clear that was an unsustainable level of offense and that their defense would eventually be exposed. I’m kind of disappointed in myself for moving them up to #2. I think they’re better than the Chiefs and could easily...
