    DENVER - Hope you enjoyed the show. Hope your mancaves and womancaves are littered in highlight videos from "Broncos 42, 49ers 17" and "Broncos 41, Cardinals 20" and even "Broncos 45, Redskins 21" and "Broncos 34, Saints 14" and "Broncos 37, Texans 13" from years past. Frame those crazy box scores to show your kids. Because this is how it...

  • Broncos defeat Dolphins: Quarter by quarter

    A quarter-by-quarter analysis of the Denver Broncos' victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

  • 3 with Klee: Will the Broncos take Champ Bailey's advice?

    Three subplots in Sunday's 2:25 p.m. game between the Broncos and Dolphins at Sports Authority Field at Mile High: 1 - One right move There was much consternation when the Broncos allowed Knowshon Moreno to leave without a contract offer. Moreno was coming off a 1,000-yard rushing season. Why let him go? Here’s why: Moreno had never fully...

  • Klee: The sea is rough, and Broncos swimming in dangerous waters

    DENVER — During Dolphins Week, the Broncos hosted Shark Week. Sounds like fin. "We saw sharks coming out of the ocean attacking seals," Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio told a sea of media. "That's how we want to attack the football." On Thursdays at Dove Valley, players gather 'round for a motivational video. Old Broncos teams...

  • 5 things to watch for in Sunday's Broncos-Dolphins game

    Some things to keep an eye on when the Dolphins and Broncos square off at 2:25 p.m. Sunday in Denver (CBS): 1 - Sackmasters A lot of times sacks come in bunches and that could certainly be the case Sunday.

  • Klee: For Nuggets to get going, Kenneth Faried must get going

    DENVER — Kenneth Faried talks a big game. He plays to the crowd, saying the right things, or at least the things the crowd wants to hear. Here, check out what he said Sept. 29, before this Nuggets season got underway: "I'm one of those players you can stick in anywhere and I'm going to produce. It doesn't matter who it is or who it's...

  • Klee: In retrospect, Denver Broncos' trade for Champ Bailey one for the ages

    ENGLEWOOD — Start with The Trade, since that's where it started for Champ Bailey and the Broncos. It started with a Redskins cornerback, entering his prime, being swapped for a 1,500-yard running back, Clinton Portis. It started with shock. "I was baffled, to be honest. I never imagined I would leave that place," Bailey said Tuesday at Dove...

  • Klee: Can the Broncos recover from St. Louis loss? Well ...

    ST. LOUIS — Is it going to be OK? Because that is a real question now. That's what matters after the Rams beat the Broncos 22-7. Quite suddenly, for the first time since Peyton Manning's first month as the Broncos quarterback, there is sincere, valid doubt. Please, someone, anyone: Is it going to be OK? "I'm not worried," wide receiver Wes...

  • 3 with Klee: Subplots, and a prediction, for today's Broncos-Rams game

    Here's the quick lowdown on Sunday's Broncos-Rams game in St. Louis (11 a.m., CBS): 1: The Next Big Thing C.J. Anderson should be the starting running back. And this time next season, don't be surprised if we're saying the same thing about Juwan Thompson. One of the annual rites of training camp is identifying the Next Big Thing at running...

  • Klee: Broncos must hit the brakes before they start coasting

    ST. LOUIS - First, Demaryius Thomas whipped his backside on a fade pattern. Then, DT thumped him with a stiff arm. Later, DT bullied him for a touchdown. By the time training camp was over, Bradley Roby looked like a high school Homecoming king who had dropped his crown: head down, knowing he once was cool, but now he wasn't. As a rookie...
