We Broncos fans have mighty high expectations.

And sometimes, a win isn't enough to put smiles on our faces.

Yesterday's 2015 NFL season kickoff against the Baltimore Ravens is a case in point. The Ravens are an excellent team considered a Super Bowl contender in many quarters, and Denver squelched them with a smothering, attacking defense that could develop into the franchise's best in a generation.

But the 19-13 victory was achieved without Peyton Manning and the offense notching a single offensive touchdown; the only time the team found the end zone was via a pick-six from cornerback Aqib Talib.

Takes on Manning's struggles lit up Twitter during and after the game, with many observers likening his performance to that of Tim Tebow — and believe it or not, quite a few commentators would gladly trade one for the other.

Look below to see the twenty most memorable tweets about the game that we found, illustrated by images from the contest.
