The Broncos' 39-33 defeat to Indianapolis last night was undeniably gut-wrenching. But did it come from out of the blue? Not if you've been paying attention.

The hype surrounding Peyton Manning's first game in Indianapolis since leaving the Colts for the Denver Broncos seems to be irritating PM to no end. But others seem to be enjoying the attention, including several students from Indy's Decatur Central High School, who put together "Peyton's Coming Hom ... More >>
Over the past week, I've been telling every Broncos loyalist within the sound of my voice that Denver wouldn't cover the 28-point spread over Jacksonville -- reportedly the largest margin ever in the NFL. But I thought the reason would be boredom: Peyton Manning and company would jump out to a hefty ... More >>

So this happened. This past Saturday night in Indianapolis in an airplane hangar somewhere, Peyton Manning offered up this chilling rendition of "Folsom Prison Blues" with Luke Bryan. Clearly, Manning is an upgrade from Tebow in more ways than one. Want more? You got it. The Broncos' QB also karaoke ... More >>
Watching Ray Lewis acting like the king of the world after playing a thoroughly ordinary game, and seeing Joe Fluke-o named MVP after the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl victory yesterday was enough to make me nearly throw up my seven-layer dip. Fortunately, Las Vegas sports books give our Denver Bronc ... More >>
The Broncos' loss to the Ravens on Saturday was agonizing, and not just because we (like pretty much everyone else) inaccurately predicted an easy Denver win. But let's put things in perspective, shall we? In our opinion, there have been five Broncos playoff defeats that were even worse. Make yourse ... More >>
Now we know who the Broncos will face in their 2013 playoffs debut: the Baltimore Ravens, by dint of the squad's 24-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. So...will the emotion from Ray Lewis's final home game (depicted in videos included in a big collection of clips below) help the Ravens def ... More >>
So the boys in Vegas now have Your Denver Broncos as 3-1 favorites to win Super Bowl XLVII, ahead of annoying New England (7-2), the hot-hot Seahawks (6-1), and the snowball-chance-in-hell Vikings (100-1). Win ten games in a row, and even the smart money starts to take you seriously. But before you ... More >>

The Broncos' 31-25 loss to the Texans yesterday followed a pattern familiar to viewers of last week's defeat to the Falcons -- fall behind due to persistent offensive ineptitude, then make a furious fourth quarter comeback that makes the final score respectable but still falls short. However, it was ... More >>
You've heard them pitching their products on the radio and you've seen them on VT: former Denver Broncos and their branded sauces and condiments.

Plenty of Broncos boosters have been in a state of giddiness since the signing of Peyton Manning. But here's something capable of pouring cold water on overheated fans: Bleacher Report's list of five NFL free agency moves sure to backfire is topped by none other than Mr. Manning.
New Broncos' quarterback Peyton Manning has come across as cool, calm and collected since his signing. But don't be fooled: Manning is among the most expressive players in the NFL -- one who doesn't mask his reactions when things go wrong. Below, we've collected videos counting down his top five way ... More >>
Hello, Denver sports noobs. Perhaps you've heard of a new man-about-town named Peyton Manning. No, no -- he's not the guy who won Project Runway All Stars. He's a football player. A quarterback. In other words, Peyton Manning is the new Tim Tebow. Except less overtly Christian and better at doing t ... More >>
Update: Just over an hour after our post, on view below, about rumors that Peyton Manning was leaning toward playing for the Tennessee Titans next season comes very different news. ESPN is reporting that Manning has chosen to sign with the Denver Broncos next season.
It's 3-16 -- digits more closely linked to Tim Tebow than No. 15. Back in the day, he daubed them into his eye black as a salute to the Bible verse John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." But Tebo ... More >>
Even as Broncos Nation waits to find out if former Indianpolis Colts megastar Peyton Manning will bring his act to Denver, Twitter Nation is abuzz over the news that the plane in which he traveled to Nashville yesterday to meet with the Tennessee Titans braintrust parked in Taylor Swift's hangar.

Those early reports that Peyton Manning would decide on a new team by Tuesday proved to be as greatly exaggerated as our initial view that he'd join the Los Angeles Lakers before he'd ink with the Broncos. At this writing, Denver is thought to be among Manning's final four or last two picks as a lan ... More >>
Initially, many of us regarded the thought of Peyton Manning signing with the Broncos as a pipe dream . Well, the stuff in that pipe has been pretty amazing thus far, with Manning actually visiting Denver in person shortly before a similar stop in Arizona. Now, with Peyton's decision delayed and mor ... More >>
Yesterday's formal parting of Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts unleashed a barrage of speculation about where the QB -- an all-time great, albeit one whose future is uncertain as he continues to recover from a neck injury -- might land. And while Denver wasn't thought to be a possible desti ... More >>
'Tis the season for trade rumors, so it's no surprise that Tim Tebow's name has surfaced in respect to potential deals. After all, anything related to the Chosen One is news right now, including his reported dinner date with Taylor Swift earlier this week. Is there anything to such gossip? Doubt it, ... More >>
Tim Tebow isn't the only current NFL player to travel overseas on goodwill missions.

Indianapolis mobilizes for an epic battle with an urban legend
How can Denver be in the playoffs and still be a national laughingstock? This morning, NPR opened a half-hour segment by noting that the Broncos have 120-1 odds against making the Super Bowl, with the host wryly noting that this fact probably won't prevent some Tim Tebow fans from betting on them. B ... More >>
John Fox.If you've been wondering when you'd see the sort of Denver Broncos team new coach John Fox would like to field week in and week out, you got your answer yesterday. The Broncos played the Fox way versus the Tennessee Titans, but still came up on the bottom of a 17-14 score. Is that be ... More >>

Kyle Orton.Did you ever expect Kyle Orton to throw for 476 yards in a Broncos uni? Probably not. Did you ever think you'd see him toss a pass like that 48-yard touchdown strike to Brandon Lloyd?

Kyle Orton.The Broncos' 24-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday was frustrating to watch, and not only because of the final score.

Elvis Dumervil with functional pectorals.The most recent news item on the Denver Broncos' official website is entitled, "Sacking Negativity."

Paging Dr. Moreau.At first glance, the logo seen here seems sinful, like some horrific gene-splicing experiment gone wrong. But since it involves Tim Tebow, how unholy can it be? Not unholy at all, argues Ed Marlowe, the Orlando resident behind BroncoGator.com.
