Our weekly perusal around the Interwebz for water cooler fodder.
The bounce-back game after the first loss is another tough one: home against Pittsburgh.
Glaring Stat: Despite allowing 30 points against the Ravens, Denver’s defense is ranked second in the NFL for points allowed.
After their first loss, here come the champions. The Pittsburgh Steelers will provide another stiff test for the Broncos. They need to throw it better. Period.
It was bound to happen. The skeptics were waiting patiently the past few weeks for the Broncos to come back to reality. But don’t kick too much dirt on ’em, it’s never a good idea to overreact to one game — win or loss. They faced a Ravens team sporting “mad dog” syndrome, coming off three straight tough losses and a bye week to think about it. Now the SB champs come to town Monday, so get ready to either jump on or off the bandwagon next week.
Eight panelists post their individual power rankings.
