Broncos host Colts this weekend

Colts have won eight of last nine meetings

The Indianapolis Colts may be a six-point road underdog but history is on their side.  There is one simple way to stop the Colts…stop Andrew Luck, who had four touchdowns in week one of the season.

Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips looks to do just that with both broncos-6DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller expected to get after Luck.  If the pass rush can force Luck into mistakes, then the  Broncos should walk away with the win against the Colts, who lost 39-35 despite a four TD game from Luck.

Chuck Pagano will have his squad ready.

“All 11 guys over there [concern me] and the guys they bring in, the backups that they have,” Pagano said Wednesday. “They’ve got a great front seven. We know that they can put a tremendous amount of pressure on your quarterback. We’ve got to do a great job in protection. They’re stingy against the run. The back end, the second level and the third level, they’ve got speed, athleticism and they’re very, very deep. Excellent on the outside at the two corner spots and the nickel spot.  They fly around and they’re physical. They do a great job. Wade [Phillips] does a great job with that group. It’s by no chance that they’re ranked where they are and where they finished last year. They can hurt you in a lot of different ways from all levels so we have to be on point.”

The match up will be the first between the two teams in 23 years that there was not a player named Peyton Manning on either roster.

Broncos open the season against the Panthers

Denver enters as a three point underdog

OLB Von Miller may have to lay some money down in Vegas after they have his Denver Broncos as three point home underdogs.  Miller has pledged to make Cam Newton’s game miserable as he intends to get back to what he does best…sack quarterbacks.  The coaching staff have noticed Miller’s more vocal attitude after signing a hefty $114.5 million contract.

“He seems to be more comfortable at everything, more focused,” Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips said. “He wanted Broncos 5to prove to everybody that maybe he’s the best player, maybe he’s the defensive player of the year. He was the MVP in the Super Bowl, but I think his next goal is to be the defensive player of the year.”

Cam has taken notice of the not so subtle Miller and had nothing but praise for the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

“He’s a great and exceptional talent, one of top players in this NFL by far, and we’ve got to account for him,” said Newton, who went 18-of-41 for 265 yards and an interception in the Super Bowl. “But not focusing everything on 58, because they have a very talented defensive line as a whole. And we’ve got to control DeMarcus Ware. We can’t let those guys dictate to us.”

As the week continues on, excitement is building for the team and fans alike.  Thursday cannot come quickly enough.

“It doesn’t matter to us. You could have a Dorito on your shoulder for all we care,” Broncos safety T.J. Ward said. “But you still have to come in here and beat us.”

Great seats and affordable tickets are still available for the game so be sure to grab yours today and get out to cheer your Denver Broncos!

Broncos “D” flummox Brady, Patriots

Who knew he still had wheels, but there he was, Peyton Manning running (and topping out at 17 MPH)  running for a first down in what would be a drive to seal the game offensively.  On the defensive end a few plays later, CB Aquib Talib sealed the game with an interceptions of Tom Brady in the end zone.

“There’s no question this is a sweet day; this was a sweet victory,” Manning said. “To me, this victory sort of is a great example of what this entire season has been like. It hasn’t been easy, it’s been a lot of different people stepping up doing their parts at different times.”

“He’s (Manning) going to do what he has to do to win,” Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’s one of the greatest competitors ever in this league.”

“For him to take off and make that play, I can’t tell you how he’s led the team the last three weeks,” Kubiak said.

The Broncos didn’t have to wait long to find out who they will be playing in Super Bowl 50 as Cam Newton and the  Carolina Panthers dismissed the Arizona Cardinals 49-15 to advance in the NFC representative.

“It’s a great honor to be going back to the Super Bowl — playing Super Bowl 50,” Manning said. “I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be a fun two weeks.”

So we now must wait two weeks until Super Bowl 50 but you can get your tickets now!  You can be at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, CA for Super Bowl 50, get your tickets today and be a part of NFL History!
