Suffocating Defense, Offensive Explosion Inspire Broncos Stampede of the Cowboys

Denver hosted the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon at Sports Authority Field. The game was picked up as FOX’s annual “America’s Game of the Week”. Well, it was not a memorable afternoon for America’s team, or the Dallas Cowboys. The Broncos galloped in a wild stampede over the Cowboys all afternoon. Denver dominated the game from start to finish, despite an hour-long weather delay. Denver ultimately won the game 42-17. Stats Stats don’t always give an accurate depiction into how a game played out over 60 minutes. This is not the case when it comes to Denver’s thrashing of the Cowboys, at least through three quarters. At one point in the third quarter, Denver had more than double the time of possession as Dallas and led by a score of 35-10. Also, they had over 100 rushing yards in comparison to Dallas having less than 10 with Ezekiel Elliot having 0 yards. The yardage was 350 to 98 midways through the third quarter. The final rushing stats were Denver 178 to Dallas with 40. Dallas finished with more passing yards,Read More

Denver’s Mile High Texas Showdown

Cowboys vs Broncos

Denver has a Mile-High showdown with the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday afternoon. The game features intriguing matchups. Von Miller and the Denver front-seven vs the Cowboys behemoth of an offensive line. Also, Aqib Talib vs Dez Bryant and Chris Harris, Jr. vs Cole Beasley. This game will be a good one. Denver is still trying to find their identity on offense while Dallas is trying to prove their 13-3 record last year was no fluke, both are off to good starts. Offense Denver’s offense had a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde vibe on Monday night against the Chargers. Jekyll showed himself in the third quarter as they dominated the entire period. However, Mr. Hyde made his presence felt in glaring fashion during the fourth quarter. Denver saw turnovers transform a 24-7 lead into a mere 24-21 lead in a matter of minutes. The Broncos’ offense will go where Trevor Siemian takes it. This isn’t a groundbreaking revolution, he is the quarterback after all. If Siemian can replicate his performance against the Chargers, Denver will be in this game throughout. However, the offensiveRead More

Denver Averts Disaster with Last Second Special Teams Heroics

Denver kicked off the 2017 NFL season on Monday night. They played the role of malicious, welcoming host to the San Diego Chargers. The AFC Western division battle just might have shown what each team should expect to achieve in the 2017 season. Denver defeated Los Angeles 24-21 after flirting with disaster in the fourth quarter. Denver jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, and would eventually take a 14-7 lead into halftime behind two Trevor Siemian touchdowns. Take away a big first half from Melvin Gordon and a well-deserved 40-yard defensive pass-interference penalty on Denver and the game would have been 14-0. Denver’s defense was in usual stingy form throughout the night. Explosive Third Quarter Denver came out of the gates to start the second half with an impressive fury. Denver’s third quarter explosion helped them blow the game open. Bradley Roby kickstarted the half with an impressive interception of Phillip Rivers. Trevor Siemian then led Denver to capitalize on the takeaway with a touchdown. Siemian completed his second touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler, Jr. on the night. Denver’sRead More

Meaningul Football is Finally Here for the Broncos

Demaryius Thomas, Von Miller, Emmanuel Sanders

Denver will finally play an actual meaningful football game this weekend. The Broncos will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 season that saw them miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2010/2011 season. Offense is the Key Denver will turn to Trevor Siemian at quarterback for the second consecutive year as they still are trying to replace Peyton Manning. Obviously, last season did not go as planned for Denver, or Siemian, as they missed the postseason. However, Siemian was injured throughout the season, which led to Paxton Lynch playing for him at numerous times. Denver was relying on a second-year pro and a rookie to lead their offense. The offense had a downright pitiful offensive line. The lack of an offensive line negated any running game and saw the quarterbacks spend most of their time running for their life. John Elway attempted to solve the offensive line riddle in the offseason. He signed Ronald Leary and Menelik Watson in Free Agency. Elway also drafted Garrett Bolles in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. LearyRead More

Denver Broncos 53 Man Roster Predictions:

T.J. Ward

The preseason is mercifully over and meaningful football is just a week away. Denver went undefeated in the preseason and will look to replicate similar success for the 2017 NFL season. So, who will make the final 53 man roster? Quarterbacks(3): Trevor Siemian – safe to assume the starting quarterback makes the final roster. Paxton Lynch – Lynch is undoubtedly the backup quarterback, when healthy. He is a former first-round pick and John Elway doesn’t want to throw in the towel on Lynch just yet. Chad Kelly – The most recent draft’s Mr. Irrelevant, Kelly has essentially been given a redshirt season to get healthy and learn the offense. Look for him to compete for the job in 2018. Runningbacks(4): C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles appear to be a two-headed monster in the backfield. Devontae Booker and Juwan Thompson would be my picks to round out the runningback room. Receivers(5): Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will make the roster and there is no debating that. I expect Carlos Henderson, Isaiah Mckenzie, and Jordan Taylor to round out the receiving coreRead More

Denver’s Struggles Continue Despite Third Consecutive Preseason Victory

Menelik Watson

Denver is now 3-0 in the preseason, which, frankly, doesn’t really mean anything. Denver defeated Green Bay on Saturday Night despite falling behind by 10 early. The vaunted Bronco defense was stingy per the usual, someone got engaged, there was a fight, and the offense struggled at times. So, basically, this Bronco’s team is still who we thought they were, a stingy defense with a sometimes anemic offense. Quarterback Play: Vance Joseph wisely named Trevor Siemian the Broncos starting quarterback on Monday. For the second consecutive season, Siemian won the job in camp by beating out Paxton Lynch. Siemian started the game slowly. Denver punted on their first possession and Siemian preceded to throw an interception on possession number two. The interception appeared to be due to a lack of chemistry between Siemian and Demaryius Thomas. Fortunately, Siemian would settle into the game. Trevor would lead Denver on two scoring drives to tie the game at 10 heading into halftime. He finished the game/first-half, with 13-22 passing for 127 yards and an interception. Paxton Lynch had limited action due toRead More
