After being defeated by the New England Patriots on Sunday, the Denver Broncos are not pointing fingers or dwelling in the past; the team is ready to move on.

“I don’t want to blame it on any particular area or people. I think all in all we hung with them physically, but mentally I thought there were certain areas as far as dropping the ball on the ground and the turnovers were really the big difference,” Coach John Fox said after the game.

“This was a setback no doubt about that, but sometimes setbacks are setups for bigger things to come. That’s the way we’ll approach it.”

According to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, the locker room was very quiet after the game, but there was still positivity in the air.

“Everybody is very positive; just encouraging each other. We’ll go at it here in a few days and get ready for Buffalo,” said quarterback Tim Tebow.  “[We have to] improve a little bit each and every day.”

The team will now get back to work and start preparing for their Week 16 game against the Buffalo Bills on Christmas Eve.

“We just got beat today. They are a great team over there, back to the drawing board tomorrow. We are going to stick to our formula for success and that is taking it one day at a time, one play at a time,” said rookie outside linebacker Von Miller.

At the end of the day, the Broncos still control their playoff fate — win and their in.

We can still control our own destiny, and we have two weeks to do it and are going to start against Buffalo,” noted defensive end Elvis Dumervill.

    My girlfriend and I will be at the Buffalo game. We’re in section 111, Row 18. Any BT’ers going?

    What’s to dwell on? They got beat by a great team with a legend at QB. Move on and realize that the situation is exactly the best possible scenario you could have asked for. The great win against the Bears gave them the luxury of being able to lose to NE.

    Just once I’d like to see someone come out and say “Yeah, we’re super depressed.  I know there’s another game next week, but we’re going to focus solely on this loss for the rest of the year.”

    hahaha yeah I would enjoy that too as long as it was a Raider or Charger saying it :)

    I used NFL Ticket Exchange. There was probably 4,000+ seats available as of 2 weeks ago. If you get some and go LMK and we’ll get up.

    Off subject but why wasnt it a sack on the missed handled snap where Brady recovered and was immediately hit and tackled by Von?

    It would be a refreshing change of pace from your typical. pointless athlete-speak.

    I asked the same question and apparently a fumbled snap/recovery by the QB counts as a rushing attack.

    I am concerned that, as we are going to be reminded by Mr. Berman,  NOBODY CIRCLES THE WAGONS LIKE THE BUFFALO BILLS.  Otherwise I’d feel pretty confident in this team, even on the road.

    I think, make that pretty sure, the wheels have come off those wagons.

    13 to 7, deep in pastieland, 4th and 1 and it’s “hey let’s kick a field goal.”  You’re doing whatever you want to the pasties and you choose to be safe rather than stick the fork in them and twist.  The offense had a whopping 4 plays after that.  Brilliant!

    We got this!

    I would love to go to a game in Buffalo, one of the last real stadiums, not one of these luxury wine and cheese crowd BS stadiums.

  • Dante Pakistan

    I agree, we got beat by a better team, nothing to be ashamed of, not like we unfeated and lost to KC.

  • Dante Pakistan

    Undefeated that is

    Rules will be rules, got to make them black and white, god forbid someone has to use common sense when making a decision.

    God I hope you’re right.  Virtually every single post-Elway year as a Bronco fan has pounded me into being reflexively confident our team will somehow choke.  That’s not fair– this is a whole new team, really, so here’s to change!

    I disagree and think they had to go for the three points on 4 and 1. Yes hindsight is 20/20, but at that time it gave the Broncos a two score lead.  The Broncos were running the ball well at that time, and I’m sure the coaches were thinking they could run it down their throats the rest of the game. Hindsight is not a possibility when dealing with the present.  It was impossible to predict the three turnovers that were about to occur.  I take a two score advantage over a possible failed 4th down conversion that could then put the patriots into the lead with just one touchdown.  imo

    I’ll be there in my orange Champ Bailey jersey, though I’m unsure as to what section I’ll be sitting in…

  • Bryan

    We’ll be sporting the blue Champ and orange Dawk jersey’s.  Any of you feel free to shoot me an email and we’ll meet up. bryansniezek at gmail.com

     It’s going to be my girlfriend/fiance/ball and chain’s first ever NFL game.

    Does anyone know the national braodcasting regions? I’ll be in Michigan/Ohio for Christmas, and was wondering if it was like the other Broncos games that were basically nation-wide.

    Broncos Bill is a CBS 1:00 and so is Browns Ravens, depending on where you are exactly, you’ll most likely get the Browns game. Hope you Sunday Ticket or atleast RedZone where you’re staying at, good luck!

    When you lead the league in 3 and out you do not settle for 3 points.  There was no hindsight involved here.  I was pissed when Fox sent out the field goal unit.  There was also the possibility of a missed field goal so stating that 3 points was a given is a wee bit reckless.  Yes it is impossible to predict what events will occur which is why you go for 7 and break the pasties will.  Convert the 4th down and put 7 points on the board and Shannon Sharpe is calling the national guard.

    YUP.   Less than a yard, deep in their territory with a chance to put a high-powered offense in a deep hole? 

    Kicking the FG there was senseless.
