Peyton Manning spoils us into worrying about Broncos' win over Raiders for eighth straight

Yeah, I know: It's ridiculous. We ought to be celebrating the Broncos' 26-13 victory over the Raiders in Oakland last night. After all, it's Denver's eighth straight win, and it keeps alive the chance that the team could move up in playoffs seeding. But damn it if Peyton Manning's transformation of this squad hasn't spoiled us into wondering, even as we enjoy each successive W, why the Broncos aren't even better....
