Peyton Manning has thrown his 500th career touchdown pass, joining Brett Favre as the only members of the exclusive club.
Football fans tend to overlook Green, a member of the same 2011 draft class as Julius Thomas, a fantasy player’s dream who has caught an AFC-high 17 touchdown passes since 2013.

In the aftermath of another letdown against the Seattle Seahawks, Denver coach John Fox was asked if he could nevertheless take some positives out of the Broncos losing in overtime rather than getting blown out as they did in the Super Bowl.
Three weeks into the season and the Denver Broncos are doing well at 2-1. But which players have lived up to expectations and which ones are leaving something to be desired?

With positive changes, there usually come negatives. And while the Broncos have enjoyed seeing new receiver Emmanuel Sanders catch on, it’s meant a drop in production by their veteran wideouts.

While the last time the two teams met was a blowout, the coaching staffs of the Broncos and the Seahawks showed they were both well prepared for the game to get close this time.
