Horse Tracks 10/26/09 - Broncos lead down to 3 games after Dolts pound Chefs; Jokeland smoked by Jets


Good Morning, MHR Friends! Apparently yesterday was Blowout Sunday, as six games were decided by a margin of 28 points or more - another four games were of margins 10 points or greater. The Dolts dismantled the Chefs and are now 3 games behind the Broncos in the standings. Meanwhile, Jokeland was shut out at home versus the Jets and JaMarcus the Hutt was benched. Meanwhile, Denver's draft position improved another notch with the Bungles' drubbing of the Bears. It's on to Baltimore for the Broncos, who play their first East Coast game of the year on Sunday at 1pm ET.

"With 11 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions through his first six games, it's getting tougher all the time to make the case that Jay Cutler has been a difference maker in Chicago. At the very least, he's no Kyle Orton."
