Thanks, Peyton! Julius Thomas is the first player in Broncos history with four receiving touchdowns in the first two games of the season.

Yes, Peyton Manning was near flawless and the Denver Broncos won the game, but I just can't get over how disappointing this defense is. In fact, somewhere in the second half I had gotten so fed up that I came up with a new nickname for this defense. And it gave me a sad face.

Maybe I am just panicked, because Chris Harris Jr. sent out a Tweet to calm the masses. Here's to hoping he is right and they get things going within the next few days! 1

Raise your hand if you live in Denver and expected Sunday's matchup to become a one-score game in its final moments, with the ailing Chiefs threatening. Anyone? No? Nice pass deflection by Broncos defender Terrance Knighton on that fourth-down stop at the end; it must have felt good, if for no other reason than because the play stood. Hey, some wins ain't pretty, but they'll all count when this club is 13-3.

Denver held off a furious comeback attempt by division rival Kansas City to stay perfect on the year, vaulting the Broncos into the top spot. The two Super Bowl XLVIII teams meet this week, conveniently enough.

They weren't dominant against the Chiefs, but they found a way. The second-half lapses they've had won't play against Seattle.

Once again the Broncos jumped out to big lead and once again they narrowly escaped a major comeback. Demaryius Thomas and DeMarcus Ware—two of their best players—responded big time after a slow start in Week 1.

Less-than-impressive win vs. decimated Chiefs, mostly because high-dollar defense has yet to prove its worth.


The Broncos are listed atop the NFL power rankings around the web as they prepare to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Do you think the Broncos should be ranked number one after their less then impressive victory over the Kansas City Chiefs?
