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 3-12 Oakland Raiders travel to Denver for their 2014 finale against the Broncos, and it’s probable the Broncos may not have much to play for, in terms of playoff seeding. But Denver will still want to win the game, and the Raiders haven’t been very good on the road this year at all—the Silver & Black is winless, in fact, away from the Coliseum.
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 addition of DeMarcus Ware means the Denver Broncos will have one of the scariest pass-rushing duos in football again.
Injuries can really hurt a team, and the later they come in the season, the worse they are. The Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints both got some big scares on Sunday, but one team is looking to fare better than the other. In Denver, a leader is returning but he has to win back the respect of his teammates.
Defense wins championships. But these days it’s a certain kind of defense. Check out our NFC all-pro defense to see who excels.
