If fans of the Denver Broncos think that Peyton Manning isn’t a dink and dunk quarterback, then they haven’t watched him this season or ever in his past. Manning doesn’t just dink and dunk his way down the field, he takes it to a whole new level. If anything, I was suprised Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons when Manning started whipping the ball 20-30 yards down the field so frequently. That’s just not the type of quarterback that I see him as, and the Broncos aren’t going to win games if he’s doing that.

If there was one thing that fans of the Denver Broncos knew when defensive-minded head coach John Fox was hired back in 2011, it was that he would find a way to turn a perpetual porous defense into a perennial top-10 one. In his second year as head coach, Fox and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio have this squad on the right track. Will it be enough when the Houston Texans, with their diverse and powerful offense, come to town on Sunday?

Heading into the 2012 season, defensive tackle was a question mark for the Broncos with new faces coming in, a big concern considering how poor Denver’s defense fared against the run last season. The Broncos kept opponents under 100 yards rushing only four times last season, and gave up at least 159 rushing yards five times.

Earlier this week, Forbes put out their list of the ” NFL’s Most Overpaid Players Of 2012 “. While we’d never accuse a player of being “overpaid” — NFL careers are far too short, and the risk of injury far too great for us to do so — we certainly do not begrudge those outlets that would. All that we ask is that the criteria for which players are deemed to be overpaid make sense and be accurate. For example, the first player in the Forbes article is New York Jets linebacker David Harris, who “quietly led the Jets with 65 tackles last season” and will make $12 million in “salary and bonus this season”. Now, tackles are not an official statistic, but Harris actually had 86 of ‘em last year, 65 of which were of the “solo” variety. Forbes did mention Harris’ five sacks from last season, which ranked second on the Jets, but omitted his four interceptions, which tied for the team lead, while noting that Harris’ struggles in coverage. According to the 2012 Football Outsiders Almanac, Harris led NFL linebackers with a 75 percent rate when defending the pass. Oh, and that $12 million salary figure? That’s Harris’ salary cap number , not his 2012 pre-tax income, which is actually $10 million, a $9.9 million base salary paid over the course of the 2012 regular season and a $100,000 workout bonus.

(Reuters) – The Baltimore Ravens will be looking to avenge a heartbreaking loss that cost them a trip to the Super Bowl last season when they host the New England Patriots in primetime on Sunday for Week Three’s marquee showdown. A missed 32-yard field goal from then Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff that likely would have sent the AFC Championship into overtime is the lasting memory of the Patriots’ 23-20 win but the pain was particularly acute for some Baltimore veterans. …
