A tough win against a lessor opponent is sure to knock the Broncos from their highest ascent to date, where some sites had Denver ranked #2. Let's take a look around the web and find out where we are...
ESPN - #4(LW: 2) - Jake's shaky performance against the Raiders leaves the ESPN guys a bit nervous --
CBS - #4(LW: 5) - Up one spot to 4, with more Plummer induced uneasiness
Covers.com - #5(LW: 7) - Up a couple of spots into the Top 5, and finally some positive words --
Football Outsiders - #10(LW: 9) - Damn, that DVOA is hard to figure out....
RealFootball365 - #4(LW: 6) - Up a couple here, and more Plummer negativity -
Yahoo Sports - #2(LW: 3) - Up to #2, and an evil prophecy indeed -
FoxSports - #2(LW: 2) - We remain at #2, though pessimism reigns supreme!
Sports Illustrated - #3(LW: 4) - Dr. Z wonders the same thing as many of us...Where the Hell is Mike Bell?!?
We are mere pieces of the game he plays
Upon this chequer-board of nights and days;
Hither and thither moves and mates and slays,
Then one by one back in the closet lays.

GridIronGrumblings - #4(LW: 7) - All the way to #4, now that's more like it!!!
NFL.com - #3(LW: 2) - Down a spot, but still ahead of the Chargers --
In the top 5 everywhere(Except for that damn DVOA, of course....) for the first time this season. Even better things to come if we can knock off the Chargers on Sunday....
