The reactions to the Broncos' 41-20 victory yesterday over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals have run the gamut. Some fans are praising the Broncos for a points explosion spurred by Peyton Manning's 500th career touchdown pass and a career-high 479 yards through the air, while others grouse that the win was devalued because the Cards were down to their third-string quarterback by game's end and defensive end Calais Campbell was injured in a Julius Thomas chop block Arizona coach Bruce Arians called the dirtiest play he's ever seen.

How good are the Cards as a team to be within 4 of the Broncos in the 4th with backup QBs? Or is Denver overrated?
