  • NFL Today, Week 16

    SCOREBOARD Monday, Dec. 2 Denver at Cincinnati, 8:30 p.m. ESPN.

Denver (11-3) can...

  • NFL playoff roundup: Who got in, eliminated

    The Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers both qualified for the NFL playoffs with wins Sunday. Next week, they will play for division titles at home.

  • Klee: For banged-up Broncos, bit players must be big-time players

    CINCINNATI - He is only 22, an NFL rookie playing for the Broncos. Maybe helps explain why Todd Davis so eagerly expressed his childhood love for the Raiders, why the young linebacker gets hyped up with videos of Broncos nemesis Ray Lewis before every game? "I'm a big Ray Lewis fan, no doubt about it," Davis said after a recent practice at...

  • Klee with three things to watch Monday night in the Broncos game

    Tables turning? 1 On the long, winding road that is the NFL season, something strange has happened: The Broncos are soaring under the radar. That's what I gather, anyway.

"You definitely...

  • Klee: Ho, ho, ho: Christmas gifts for Colorado sports teams

    DENVER — Mike sent the email back in September. It was addressed to Rahim Moore. Dear Mr. Moore: Please accept my sincere thanks for your comments concerning God. I am currently suffering from Parkinson's disease. And it continued from there. Since that first email, Michael Cunningham has undergone two brain surgeries, the first of which...

  • Knighton takes on bigger role in Denver this season

    ENGLEWOOD — 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." However, he's a huge reason the Broncos (11-3) are more than just the Peyton Manning Show. He's the fulcrum of Denver's fourth-rated defense that's second in the league against the...

  • Broncos dig into their deep linebacker corps

    ENGLEWOOD — Aside from Von Miller, Denver's once-deep linebacker corps has been reduced to four guys playing their first NFL season and an undrafted third-year pro who's started just five games. Steven Johnson, who at 26 qualifies as the greybeard among greenhorns, swears he isn't concerned. "I don't think there's any drop-off, because I...

  • Manning limited at Broncos' practice with thigh injury

    ENGLEWOOD — Peyton Manning is over his illness but not his injury.

  • Bengals heading back into withering spotlight

    CINCINNATI — Two big goals are still out there for the Cincinnati Bengals: Shine in prime time, win in the playoffs. The AFC North leaders have a chance to put a dent in the first one on Monday night when they host Denver (11-3), which has already clinched the AFC West.
