The Broncos came into the game plenty confident they would come away with a win.

So they decided to hand it off to Larry Johnson. Good idea.

Then the offense starts struggling. Jay Cutler was hurried and even sacked.

Maybe that gigantic freaking slice on his arm had something to do with it.

Matt Prater is called for field goal after field goal. He makes 4 of 5, nailing two from over 50 yards.

Despite it all, the Broncos are still IN THIS GAME. All they need is the onside kick.

    It’s kind of a cool idea. I just wish it was a more joyous week to start it.

  • Kyle

    Me too.

    I’ve been wanting to do a photo gallery but I think this is better. Hopefully next week’s is much more joyous.

  • Aerobroncos

  • Kyle


    I was so busy at work last week I feel like I let all you guys (and the team) down. I’m making it up for this week and from now on, I tell ya…

    Yeah, I like this and think it’ll be something I do regularly.

    “Maybe that gigantic freaking slice on his arm had something to do with it.”

    The fumble by “the beast” was with his left arm, so it had nothing to do with his gigantic slice on his RIGHT arm.

  • Darren

    Anyone know where we can see a replay of Spencer Larsen’s hit?

  • Kyle

    Darren – Stay tuned, we’ll have it here shortly.
