The Denver Broncos have their issues on third down. Goal-line stands are another matter altogether.
With Chris Harris Jr. still working his way back from ACL surgery and Kayvon Webster sidelined by a sprained ankle, Bradley Roby capitalized on his increased snaps in the preseason.
Wes Welker angrily declared he was “as shocked as everyone” when the NFL banned him for the first month of the season for violating the league’s drug-abuse policy.
General manager John Elway wanted more of an edge on defense after Denver’s shellacking in the Super Bowl, so he went out and signed free agents DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward.
The Denver Broncos look like they’re ready to start the season. They had an impressive preseason debut against the Seattle Seahawks, and they christened San Francisco’s new stadium with a 34-0 shutout of the 49ers.
Peyton Manning threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Julius Thomas and dominated in his two series, leading the Denver Broncos past the San Francisco 49ers 34-0 on Sunday to spoil the NFL debut at sparkling $1.2 billion Levi’s Stadium.
Peyton Manning seems to be having a lot more fun this summer. He’s still grinding through training camp like always but he’s also showing a loosey-goosey side that he rarely flashed in Indy or in his first two seasons in Denver.
There was a time when Brock Osweiler wanted to seek out Aaron Rodgers to pick his brain about how he waited so patiently for his shot while serving an extended apprenticeship under Brett Favre.
The Broncos defense is playing with more of an edge during training camp so far, and it’s a good bet Jack Del Rio’s squad will put in a better performance than last season.
Julius Thomas missed the Denver Broncos’ annual summer scrimmage with a bruised thigh, so Jacob Tamme stepped up and played the starring role alongside Peyton Manning.
