After fifteen years in the NFL, Champ Bailey will play in the Super Bowl. “It feels very special,” wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said, via the team’s official website. “This is my fourth year and Champ has been in the game so long, so long. And all we talk about when I talk to him is, he wants to go to the Super Bowl. I’m so happy for him.” The 35-year-old Bailey has...
Demaryius Thomas: The big-time receiver took over the game late in the second quarter and finished the game with seven catches for 134 yards and a TD. Thomas was quiet early in the championship contest but once the Patriots’ Aqib Talib went out of the game, DT was able to exploit the mismatch.
Terrance Knighton: The man they call “Pot Roast” was a handful on the defensive line...
Peyton Manning is taking the Denver Broncos on a trip to New York for the Super Bowl after another of his impeccably crafted victories — this time, a 26-16 win over the Patriots on Sunday in the AFC title game. Less than three years after being unable to throw a football because of his surgically ravaged neck […]The post Peyton Manning could be the first quarterback to win...
It was certainly a big game for Broncos WR Wes Welker when he faced off against his former team in the AFC Championship game against the Patriots. After contract talks with the Patriots took a turn for the worse and he bolted to Denver. For that reason it must have been satisfying for Welker to get a win.
“It’s sweet, no matter what,” Welker said after the Broncos won the...

This guy in the stands at the Patriots vs Broncos game LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE PEYTON...
Why do I get the feeling that Welker made this statement with a huge grin on his face.
Welker is head back to another Super Bowl, this time with the Denver Broncos. Welker also played a huge part in preventing the team that no longer wanted him, from reaching the Super Bowl as well.
Welker told USA Today that the victory is sweet, but he also feels bad for New England.
Matt Prater's 27-yard field goal gave the Denver Broncos a 3-0 lead after one quarter in the AFC championship Sunday at sunny Sports Authority Field.
The much-anticipated 15th matchup between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning took a while to get going as the Patriots went three-and-out on their first two possessions and the Broncos couldn't finish promising drives on their first...
After Sunday’s AFC title game, Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker told reporters that he didn’t intentionally injure Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib.
“It was one of those plays where it’s kind of a rough play, and I was trying to get him to go over the top, and I think he was thinking the same thing and wanted to come underneath and we just kind of collided,” Welker said...
Welker may have laid the smack down on Aqib Talib on the field, ultimately forcing the stud cornerback out for the rest of the game. But the head coach of the Patriots, Welker's former team who departed on negative terms was smacked with the words the legendary coach had to say.Early in the game Wes Welker hit Talib pretty hard on what is called a "Pick" or a "...
The Denver Broncos defensive game plan was executed to perfection in yesterday’s AFC Championship Game.
The reason why the New England Patriots offense was clicking so well prior was because of the teams ability to run the football.
LaGerrette Blount was playing at a crazy high level. In the Pats previous 2 games, Blount ran for a combined 355 yards and 6 touchdowns.
He was averaging...
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will sit outside in the stands –– and freeze along with everyone else –– in what could be the coldest Super Bowl in history. Super Bowl XlVIII will be played at MetLife Stadium at East Rutherford, NJ. The AccuWeather forecast: A high of 37 degrees and a low of 25 degrees.
This game didn’t go the way we hoped.
The Patriots simply never got on track on defense, and the offense took far too long to come alive. The Broncos scored only 13 points in the first half, despite gaining massive yardage and dominating the time of possession. The Pats’ defense bent all the way down the field but didn’t quite break in the red zone. But the offense accomplished...
Publisher Nick St. Denis, associate editor Dan Begnoche and senior contributor Sean Donovan pick the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.Sean's take:For all that's made about the offenses and the quarterbacks in this game, the best defensive gameplan is likely to win. Lacking its best slot cornerback and fielding a weak overall secondary...
