The Denver Broncos' 42-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, September 17, has to be one of the most satisfying victories for the squad since Peyton Manning hung up his spurs. After all, perhaps as much as 30 percent of the sold-out crowd at Mile High Stadium yesterday was decked out in Cowboys regalia, and many of those in attendance lived up to Dallas fans' rep for being the NFL's most annoying. They were plenty boastful before the kickoff and mighty humble after the final whistle.

I was fortunate enough to witness this scene in person. After having not attended a regular-season Broncos contest since the day before 9/11, I've now seen two games in a row thanks to my daughter, Lora, who gave me tickets to last week's nail-biter over crybaby Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers for Father's Day and scored Cowboys ducats from a co-worker who kindly sold them for face value.

Like many of those in the stands, we feared a long day for the Men in Orange thanks to the participation of running back Ezekiel Elliott, whose on-the-field performances since debuting last season have been as impressive as his off-the-field activities have been controversial. But Denver's defensive line, which had trouble stopping the run in 2016-2017, held Zeke to just eight yards on nine carries, and quarterback Dak Prescott was unable to compensate with his arm. When Aqib Talib, who'd narrowly missed intercepting the ball twice earlier, picked Prescott in the end zone and raced 103 yards for a cherry-on-top TD as the contest was winding down, the ecstasy in the stadium was so orgasmic that plenty of Broncos lovers probably had a cigarette to celebrate.

Afterward, Twitter exploded with tweets aimed at the Cowboys faithful. Count down our twenty favorites below.
