Peyton Manning made sure John Fox’s return to Carolina was a successful one, throwing for 301 yards and a touchdown to lead the Denver Broncos to a 36-14 win over the Panthers on Sunday.
Eight players show up on Denver’s injury report this week, but the Broncos should be without only two starters in Tracy Porter and Chris Kuper this Sunday in Carolina.
While the Broncos are well versed at playing against pass-heavy offenses, the Panthers’ run-first offense will cause adjustments.
Guard Chris Kuper and Tracy Porter were again out of Broncos practice Wednesday. Luckily for Denver, the Panthers like to run, which will limit the impact of Porter’s injury if he is indeed held out.
Broncos linebacker Wesley “The Lumberjack” Woodyard has been a beast on the field for Denver so far this season totaling double-digit tackles in each of the last four games. He says it’s all about defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio’s scheme.
He tackled pro football players for 12 years, but former NFL linebacker Chris Draft is now battling a disease that took his love, and changed his life.
