  • Blog: Broncos: Denver, Seattle showed same flaws on Sunday

    In the game before The Game, Denver and Seattle showed some similarities. Unfortunately for both, that's not a compliment.

  • Jay Cutler rallies Bears past 49ers in fourth

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Marshall walked up to Jay Cutler and planted a congratulatory kiss on his quarterback's head.

  • Chiefs' late rally falls short in 24-17 loss

    DENVER (AP) — The injury-plagued Kansas City Chiefs did everything they were supposed to do against Peyton Manning and his Broncos. Well, except that one thing — scoring.
