Our weekly look around the web for how the Broncos rank in NFL Power Rankings.

Tough overtime loss in Seattle, but now the Broncos get two weeks to prepare for hosting the Cardinals. Peyton Manning's next touchdown makes him the second with 500 career TD passes.

Record: 2-1. Peyton Manning stunk it up for three and a half quarters on Sunday, but with the Denver Broncos defense bringing the nasty with them for the entire second half he was able to find his legs finally for two late touchdowns and a two point conversion to send the game into overtime. It was all for naught, however, but I for one have come away very encouraged by the Broncos performance in one of the NFL's most hostile environments. It's a two horse race. 6

Give credit where credit is due: The Broncos refused to fold in the toughest house in football. Peyton Manning made the throws he had to in the late going, particularly on that soft, pinpoint toss to Demaryius Thomas to get the two-point conversion that sent the game to overtime. That said, the Broncos' improved defense couldn't do enough at the end to clinch a contest in which it had performed well enough to win.

Week 3 for the 2014 NFL season is in the books and it was another wild one. The Seahawks leap back into the top spot and move in front of the team they beat this week, the Broncos, last week's No. 1 team. Peyton Manning led a ballsy game-tying touchdown drive (capped with a two-point conversion) in the final minute of regulation, but Russell Wilson had the last laugh, helping carry Seattle 80 yards downfield in overtime to defeat Denver.

The defense showed well against Seattle, which was needed. Now comes a bye before a big one with Arizona.

The defense sparked the comeback and Peyton Manning nearly helped the Broncos knock off the defending champions in the toughest place to play in the NFL. Newcomer Emmanuel Sanders built on his early season momentum with 149 yards on 11 catches—eight of which went for first downs. We also caught a glimpse of how dominant Von Miller can be when healthy—he racked up eight hurries, a sack, and made four stops in the run game. The Broncos have a better roster than they did in 2013.

If only they could have played Seattle this tough in the actual Super Bowl. Still, Denver can take many positives out of this loss.
