Week in and week out, injuries can really hurt a team. This week, two of the Denver Broncos two most valuable players are listed as “questionable” for their big Monday Night Football match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Terrance Knighton has experienced quite a growth spurt in Denver this season. Granted, that sounds outlandish for a 331-pound guy known as “Pot Roast.”
He hasn’t done it often in his career, but on Sunday Peyton Manning threw a block for his running back. Teammate Rahim Moore was amused on the sidelines.
With just three games left in the regular season, the Denver Broncos can clinch the AFC West and at least one home playoff game with a win at San Diego on Sunday.
In dedicating themselves to running the ball, Denver has done two things: They’ve found their running back of the future and they have proven to the entire league that they can — and will — win without relying on Peyton Manning’s arm, according to CBSDenver.com’s Brett Heinzerling.
The downshifting of Denver’s high-octane offense doesn’t mean the Broncos won’t “put our foot on the gas and throw it 50 times,” insists coach John Fox.
The Broncos won their third straight game since downshifting their high-octane offense from a pass-oriented attack to a run-heavy approach.
These Denver Broncos aren’t as slick as last year’s high-flying, record-breaking bunch, the one that was stopped cold in the Super Bowl.
The Denver Broncos opened up the scoring against the Buffalo Bills with a C.J. Anderson 6-yard run for a touchdown with 2:48 left in the first quarter and lead 14-3 at halftime.
The Denver Broncos have promoted kicker Brandon McManus from their practice squad to the 53-man roster hoping to get better results on their kickoffs.
