  • Colts looking for playmakers

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck keeps trying to push the ball down the field and defenses keep finding ways to thwart him. This week, coach Chuck Pagano said the Colts need to more frequently get the ball in the hands of guys who can make big plays. "I think we've got to get our playmakers involved," he said. "And we've got to do a good job...

  • Gase, Manning get another shot at Sherman

    ENGLEWOOD — The Denver Broncos won't come right out and say whether they'll test Richard Sherman as the Chargers did or shy away from him as the Packers did. Here's a hint, however: "We respect him," receiver Bubba Caldwell said. "But we're going to make him earn his money." Green Bay cut off half the field and Aaron Rodgers never threw...

  • Bears WR Marshall answers past abuse claims

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall believes attempts to link his troubled past to the controversy about NFL domestic violence have been made only for personal gain. Marshall spent 40 minutes Thursday responding to allegations made a day earlier in Marietta, Georgia. The father of a woman who once dated...

  • Blog: Broncos host pep rally for…. Seahawks?

    Guess the Flacco Flag wasn't enough. The Broncos are honoring an opponent by talking up the Seahawks as if Seattle is Emmitt Smith's Cowboys, Richard Dent's Bears and Steve Atwater's Broncos all rolled into one. For real, though. Dove Valley today sounded like a Seahawks pep rally. The cheerleaders wore orange practice uniforms, the...

  • Peyton Manning a big fan of Colorado's marijuana laws? Appears so

    Apparently Peyton Manning is a fan of Colorado's pot laws. Not because he smokes. The Broncos’ quarterback owns 21 Papa John’s Pizza franchises in the area. In an extensive interview with Peter King of MMQB, Manning alluded to the fact that the legalized marijuana in the state has helped his business. (Hint: The munchies.) Here is what...

  • Elway son pleads guilty in domestic violence case

  • FANTASY PLAYS: Injury bug strikes fantasy lineups

    The second week of the NFL season was downright diabolical to fantasy owners who saw a wave of injuries and suspensions gut their rosters.

Doug Martin and Carson...

  • Welker back on the field after suspension lifted

    ENGLEWOOD — Wes Welker is practicing for the first time since Labor Day. The Denver Broncos wide receiver was reinstated Wednesday after the NFL agreed to a new performance-enhancing drug policy.

  • Atlanta Falcons host rapidly sinking Buccaneers

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were supposed to be vastly improved this year. The standings show a big, fat zero in the win column. Yes, the talent base looks good on both sides of the ball. New coach Lovie Smith was a winner in Chicago and has brought a freshness to the environment in Tampa. Yet his team lost two straight at home, both in close...

  • Broncos: The Line of Scrimmage, Broncos at Seahawks

    You might remember the Line of Scrimmage from last week. Here's the second edition. The Line: Seattle -4.5. Going back to their AFC West days, the Broncos have owned this series.

  • Amid public pressure, Vikings bar Adrian Peterson from all team activities

    MINNEAPOLIS — After a day of public pressure from angry fans and concerned sponsors, the Minnesota Vikings have reversed course and placed star running back Adrian Peterson on the exempt-commissioner's permission list, a move that will require him to stay away from the team while he addresses child abuse charges in Texas. The Vikings made the...

  • Kicker Brandon McManus making a case to stay in Denver

    ENGLEWOOD — First-year kicker Brandon McManus is making the most of his NFL tryout while Pro Bowler Matt Prater serves out his four-game suspension kicking field goals at a nearby high school.

  • Will Broncos TE Julius Thomas be the difference against the Seahawks?

    Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas has gotten off to a fast start this season with four touchdowns, including three scores opening night in a win against the Colts.

  • Broncos: The smartest words of Broncos-Seahawks week

    Mondays are light days for NFL media interests. The players visit the practice facility, don't say much, then go home. Tuesdays are off days.

But one Bronco already shared words to live (this week) by, summing up the rematch with the smartest words a...

  • A View From Seattle: For Broncos, the game is a Super Bowl rematch. For Seahawks, it's a test to get back on track

    So it’s on. At least in Denver, that is. “They beat us bad in the Super Bowl. They think they have the pedigree, they talked noise all offseason. That’s what we’ve been waiting for,” Broncos wide receiver Andre Caldwell told USA TODAY on Sunday, talking of course about the Seahawks. Caldwell was speaking after his team beat Kansas...

    The governor of Minnesota is calling on the Vikings to change course and suspend Adrian Peterson for abusing his son, according to NBC Sports. Minnesota Gov.

  • KLEE: Why I like Seahawks star Richard Sherman - when he wins

    DENVER — It's easy to talk after a win. The locker room's a little giddier, the next game a little easier, the media a little nicer. That's when Richard Sherman is at his best. After a win, in a Seahawks locker room with more personalities than a sitcom, Sherman is a walking, talking sound byte. Truth is, Sherman is at his best a lot,...

  • Broncos stumbling out of tunnel at halftime

    ENGLEWOOD — Peyton Manning didn't take a single second-half snap in the preseason, and he's barely breaking a sweat after halftime in the regular season. Both the Colts and Chiefs have kept the five-time MVP watching, waiting and warming up for good chunks of the third and fourth quarters as they turned double-digit deficits into nail-biters....

  • Denver's offense being kept off field often in second half

    ENGLEWOOD - Peyton Manning didn't take a single second-half snap in the preseason, and he's barely breaking a sweat after halftime in the regular season.

  • ICYMI: Adrian Peterson, Jets’ TO top NFL topics

    It is not the case that an NFL player is suspended or deactivated because of — or kept around despite — a pending criminal case each and every day. Just seems that way lately. And the futures of some players, most notably 2012 MVP Adrian Peterson, are going to be a big deal this week. Minnesota’s star running back was inactive for what...

  • Eagles coach ready for another dose of Luck

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Chip Kelly has a simple message for the Eagles this week. Yes, the defending NFC East champs are the only team in the division with a win. Yes, the defense held Jacksonville scoreless on its final 11 possessions last week. And yes, Philadelphia has one of the league's most potent offenses. But when you're playing...

  • Broncos DT Austin excused for family emergency

    ENGLEWOOD — Defensive tackle Marvin Austin has flown to North Carolina to be with his father, who was involved in a serious car accident.

  • Klee: Despite 2-0 start, Broncos must walk the talk in Seattle

    DENVER — With a wallet thicker than a layer of sod, the Broncos built a defense that claimed it could be the second coming of the Orange Crush. For large portions of two games, though, it has been orange mush. Do you know what the Seahawks will do to the Broncos if they allow Seattle to convert 11 of 16 third-down attempts next Sunday? Here's...

  • Late defensive stand helps Broncos down Chiefs

    DENVER – The Denver Broncos beat the Kansas City Chiefs 24-17 Sunday Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

So through all of...
