The win over the Bengals should quiet the Tebow noise. Sunday at Tennessee will be telling.
FOX: 25th (30)
They won at home as they should have. That’s a beginning. Willis McGahee ran the ball hard, and he may fit the John Fox scheme better than Knowshon Moreno anyway.
CBS: 24th (29)
Now can they get off Kyle Orton’s back for at least a week? The defense won’t win a lot of games for the Broncos. It’s not very good.
National Football Post: 28th (30th)
The Broncos get the win, but there are a lot of holes on this roster.
Walter Football: 23rd (27th)
Of all the teams in these power rankings, I had the toughest time placing the Broncos. Their 24-22 victory over the Bengals was obviously unimpressive, but Champ Bailey, Elvis Dumervil and Brandon Lloyd were all out, and John Fox had to use Tim Tebow at receiver because he ran out of wideouts. At least that kept the fans from booing.
And here’s how humanity’s future enslavers view Mile High football. Funny how both had the Broncos move up after the Week 1 loss and down after the Week 2 win. Silly computers.
