FOXBOROUGH - Even though his Broncos were broken like show ponies in a 45-10 loss to the Patriots, coach John Fox told his players he was proud of them last night.

Right from the get go the Divisional Rounad match up started out ugly for Denver, especially it’s secondary. Tom Brady started off with a 7 yard touchdown pass to Wes Welker and finished with 6 touchdowns and 1 interception. The one INT was a bright...
Long snapper Lonie Paxton isn't at the Denver Broncos' practice for a second straight day.
Coach John Fox said Paxton was excused from Wednesday's workout for personal reasons. The 12th-year pro was also absent from the 20-minute portion of practice that was open to the media Thursday.
It wasn't clear who would work with kicker Matt Prater and holder/punter Britton...
Last January, Broncos players packed up their belongings and left Dove Valley unsure about who their head coach would be. They found out a few weeks later it would be John Fox, but because of the NFL lockout that stretched into late summer, it wasn’t until training camp that most players got to know Fox.
Today, numerous players gushed about the job Fox did in his first year in...
The Denver Broncos came into Foxboro with hopes of upsetting the New England Patriots and once again send the Patriots home earlier than expected in the post season. But with all the hype about Broncos QB Tim Tebow the sporting world seemed to forget about a man named Tom Brady.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Brady plays best when he is pissed off. He needs...

(Enough caveats?)It's pretty simple, actually: There wasn...
What players and coaches -- and fans and analysts across the U.S. -- were saying after Tom Brady and the New England Patriots routed Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos 45-17 on Saturday in the second round of the NFL playoffs.
“All good things must come to an end.”
One of the most overused quotes in the history of quotes yet it is so fitting in describing the end of Tebowmania and the Denver Broncos, well at least if you consider Tebowmania a good thing (I am still uncertain at this point) , as the Patriots absolutely destroyed the ‘white bronco’ last night, winning 45-10.
It was a magical run...
