The NFL week got underway on Thursday night with the Chicago Bears handing the New York Giants their sixth straight defeat of the regular season. Turnover continue to plague QB Eli Manning. The teams continue their path towards and undefeated season. Kansas City hosts the Oakland Raiders. The New Orleans Saints travel to take on the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos host the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. The Broncos set a Vegas record this week by opening as the biggest favorite in an NFL game, giving the Jaguars 28 points while shattering NFL scoring records after five games. Lets look at this weeks picks and predictions against the spread. Oakland Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs (-8) 41 The Chiefs defense leads the NFL in takeaways and is playing a smothering opportunistic style this season. This is one of the storied rivalries in the NFL. While Terrelle Pryor has shown improvement this season, I don’t believe he’s ready to play in Arrowhead. Chiefs 26-13 Philadelphia Eagle...

Eight myths surrounding Peyton Manning's departure from the Colts

The Indianapolis Colts cut Peyton Manning. A year and a half later, those words are still surprising. While both parties have fared well since parting ways, the move is still shrouded in misinformation and controversy. As Manning prepares to lead his Denver Broncos into Indianapolis next Sunday, now is the perfect time to revisit the fact and fiction of one of the most controversial...

Denver Broncos are averaging 46 points a game; Can they get it to 50?

Peyton Manning is playing like a man possesed this year and tomorrow it should only get better. Peyton has 20 passing touchdowns this season already and only one interception. The team has been putting up crazy points and are averaging 46 a game. @AdamSchefter: Broncos are now averaging 46 points per game – 16 points […]

Giants must remove pressure from Eli to improve

There are a lot of terrible teams in the NFL, and by and large, it’s easy to see why those teams perform so poorly. Still, there are a few teams in the league’s cellar that really make no sense at all. The New York Giants may be the best example of such a team this year. The Giants are led by a head coach and quarterback pair that have won two Super Bowls together, beating...

Giant Legacy: Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin are Legends

As of today October 11th, 2013, the New York Giants have the worst record in the NFL at 0-6 as a result of their 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football.The national audience saw the Giants allow 25+ points and have 3 turnovers for the sixth straight game.The sports world views the Giants as a laughing stock and Eli Manning threw three interceptions, including...

Column: Broncos have no reason to apologize

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Jacksonville was never going to be too much of a problem, except for those who love favorites and bet on the Denver Broncos against the biggest underdog in NFL history. The bookies in Vegas were always a bit uncomfortable about the 27-point spread, though even they wouldn't have given odds that the Broncos would be reduced...

Broncos beat pesky Jags, move to 6-0

Peyton Manning threw for two scores and Knowshon Moreno ran for three to lead the Denver Broncos to a tougher-than-expected 35-19 victory Sunday over the winless Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Best Moments From Giants-Bears

New York made Chicago work a little harder than expected for the win everybody presumed the Bears would get. If anything, it just made Eli’s mistakes more dramatic. Which is kind of nice. Eli Manning interceptions in the second half of 30-point blowouts aren’t nearly as fun. So thanks for that.Cheers to Jay Cutler for kicking his history of Thursday Night Football struggles,...

Johnny Manziel Just Doing Work

Pimpin ain’t easy, Johnny Manziel is just smashing chicks and winning football games. Cheyenne looks like she just got freshly piped and ready to make that walk of shame. Just another day at Johnny Football’s House. Peyton Manning Bronco Jerseys Available in Indy DeSean Jackson and LRG Collaborative T-Shirt

Justin Blackmon electric, but Jaguars fall to Broncos

DENVER (AP) -- For an uncomfortably long time Sunday, it was a matter of "if" for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, not "how many." Their supposedly lopsided matchup against the winless Jacksonville Jaguars turned into quite a tussle for much of a surreal afternoon. Not until Knowshon Moreno ran for his third touchdown did the Broncos have any sense of security...

Broncos Aren't As Invincible As Everyone Thinks

The Denver Broncos are 5-0 and are the best team in the National Football League (NFL) according to many of the power rankings on various networks. This probably shouldn't come as a surprise seeing how the odds-makers in Las Vegas had the Broncos as the favorite to win this year's Super Bowl. Before last Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, some analysts were even...

NFL Power Rankings Week 6

1. Denver Broncos - Peyton Manning could have thrown for six touchdowns against the Jags, but he decided to hand off three goal line plays to Knowshon Moreno.  No matter how the Broncos score, they are far and away the best offense in the NFL.  I do have some questions about the defense, which is what cost them in the AFC Divisional Playoff game a year ago.  They will get better...

Who Is Taysom Hill Really?

To say that Taysom Hill has been playing ugly, would be accurate. To say that he has the keys to improve, that is truth. You can’t teach a player speed, but you can teach a player accuracy. That is what is holding Taysom Hill down, is his accuracy. Lets be honest, the comparisons to Steve Young is a bit overreacting. Physically, Taysom beats Steve Young and he also has the better...

Colts drop ball, take a step back, in loss at San Diego on Monday Night Football

No sense trying to find colorful words to describe it. Put simply the Colts stunk Monday night. As is the case with any loss against a supposed inferior team there’s plenty of blame to go around after a 19-9 loss at San Diego on Monday Night Football. A bit of perspective before the quickie analysis: As much as this game was agonizing to watch trying to stomach an offense that...
