How the Seattle Seahawks offensive line cooled off Pot Roast

Denver Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton is a big, bad man. It’s probably never a good idea to mess with a man who is nicknamed “Pot Roast”: Knighton can be terrifying beyond his nickname. According to Football Outsiders, offenses only gained 0.6 yards per play in 2013 when Knighton made the tackle, good for 7th-best at that metric in the league at his position....

Denver Broncos: week two review

Another game, another 30 minutes of play for the Denver Broncos. They followed up a 21 point first half against the Kansas City Chiefs with a 3 point second half.

The Denver Broncos are one of the most talented teams in the NFL, making it all the way to Super Bowl XLVIII last season before their demise at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.
