There was one team ready to move onto the AFC Championship Game Sunday night, and it wasn’t the Denver Broncos. The Indianapolis Colts out-preformed the Broncos in every aspect of the game and won the playoff contest 24-13.
Denver is stacked with talented players thanks to John Elway’s construction of the team over the last four years. So, there have been far more “studs” than “duds” this season, and we’ll look at a few specific men here.
Throughout the John Elway – Peyton Manning Era, a focus on offense was apparent. But things have changed this season, and possibly for the better, as the Broncos are more well-suited to face the playoffs this time around.
The Denver Broncos are coming off a loss, and that means bad news for the winless Oakland Raiders. Peyton Manning loves to dissect a bad defense, and that’s what he’s prepping to do right now—leaving the Silver & Black on the spot for Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the defending AFC champs.
The 2013 New England Patriots overachieved this season, but they couldn’t overcome a powerful Denver Broncos squad in the AFC Championship Game.
The New England Patriots still have some injury concerns, but a first-round playoff bye is allowing the team to do some healing.
