Posted November 06, 2012 on AP on Fox
Just a month ago, Tracy Porter in street clothes on the Denver sideline was a welcome sight for any opposing quarterback. Now teams might actually prefer to see him back on the football field. Porter, who leads the league with three game-sealing interceptions since 2009, hasn't played in a month while dealing with problems related to a seizure he had over the summer. He hasn't been missed on the field by the Broncos (5-3), however, because two cornerbacks sporting big chips on their shoulders after going undrafted out of college are playing so well in his absence. Combined, Chris Harris and Tony Carter have allowed just 23 completions in 59 attempts, and Carter is the toughest cornerback in the NFL to complete a pass against, according to STATS LLC.

Kuper, Tamme, Thomas dinged-up for Broncos

The good news for Denver’s offensive line is that the injury sustained by guard Chris Kuper on Sunday is not as bad as it could have been.  The bad news is that he’ll likely miss a month of football due to a severely sprained left ankle. This is not the first time Kuper has had ankle woes, as a dislocated left ankle abruptly ended his 2011 season in January, causing him to miss...

Denver’s John Fox ready to return to Carolina

(Image courtesy of Streeter Lecka/Getty Images) John Fox spent eight seasons in Carolina from 2002-10, coaching the Panthers to five post-season victories and a Super Bowl appearance (XXXVIII).  On Sunday, Fox will be back on the sideline at Bank of America Stadium — this time coaching the apposing team, Denver. “I have a lot of great relationships there,” Fox told the Denver...

Manning now all-time comeback king

It was early November in Cincinnati. The Broncos quarterback dropped back to pass, found a receiver open for a 30-yard gain. Four plays later, Denver scored the winning touchdown and John Elway, in his 16th and final season, had the 39th game-winning drive of the 40 he would engineer in the fourth quarter or overtime. Fast forward 15 years to another November day in Cincinnati...

Manning sets record, Broncos beat Bengals 31-23

Peyton Manning had no trouble clearing those two interceptions out of his head and leading a fourth-quarter comeback. ''I've been there before,'' the four-time MVP said. And no one's ever been better at it. Manning threw for a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter Sunday, rallying the Denver Broncos to a 31-23 victory that left him 8-0 against the Cincinnati...

What they say in Denver about the win

The focus in the Denver Post is that of Champ Bailey and AJ Green. Of course it is a Denver paper so they praise Bailey as shutting down AJ at key moments (like when Dalton under throws the ball). Bailey got beat by AJ flat out. If the Bengals had anything else to test the Broncos D then they would have won this game. As it stands the playbook should look like this from here on out...

Former NFL running back LenDale White excited about Colorado legalizing Pot

You remember former NFL tailback (read: bust) and USC star LenDale White, correct? White was drafted by Tennessee and also played for the Denver Broncos. He was reunited with Pete Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks, but failed a drug test and got suspended. He was pretty excited about Colorado becoming the first state to legalize marijuana. He tweeted: “Weed is legal” followed...

Holliday makes fast impact for Broncos

The linebacker sprawled out and barely got a hand on Trindon Holliday. Not enough of a hand. Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. The 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati went down as the longest...

NFL Rumors: Is Peyton Manning 2012 NFL MVP At Denver Broncos Midseason?

Peyton Manning has won four NFL MVP awards. The Denver Broncos quarterback is no stranger to what it takes to win the NFL MVP. In fact, although he did not play a single snap during the 2011 NFL season, which turned out to be his final one with the Indianapolis Colts, many felt as if Manning still deserved a few votes for MVP as it proved just how important he was to his team and...

Finding Diamonds In The Rough

The Denver Broncos have a pair of undrafted rookies making an impact, so why can't teams like the Patriots have the same success? One of the Broncos is actually a former Patriot.
