If this was a preview of January for the Denver Broncos, it’ll be a long, sustained one indeed.

The Broncos dominated the New Orleans Saints Sunday night, in all phases, for four quarters.

The defense was stifling, holding Drew Brees and the Saints to under 200 yards offense until the game was far out of hand late in the fourth quarter. The special teams was clutch, not allowing Darren Sproles to wreak havoc while making key field position plays. The offense, led by Peyton Manning, was dynamic, as Broncos rushers Willis McGahee and Ronnie Hillman combined for over 200 rushing yards and Manning threw three touchdowns. Denver made the Saints look soft as they rolled over New Orleans 34-14 in Week 8 NFL action.

The Broncos improved to 4-3 with the win, taking sole possession of first place in the AFC West as they head to a pair of road games at Cincinnati and at Carolina.

    That was awesome!

    So good to see the defense making huge strides! Holy s**t Wesley Woodyard! (13 tackles, sack, forced fumble, and an interception) What a great performance. I’m expecting a big run into the playoffs. Fingers crossed for a potential 2nd seed in the AFC with how mediocre everyone is playing-minus the Texans. Go Broncos!

    Finally! It took 8 weeks, but we played from start to finish. All 4 quarters! And it looked awesome! Now lets’s string a bunch of wins together. If we continue to play like we did today, theres not too many teams that can handle us. Bring on the Bengals!

  • Mark Mancini

    What an magical night! My SF Giants win the World Series and my beloved Broncos CRUSH the Saints! WOOOTTTT! :)

    For the first time this year, I’m seriously excited!

    No more dogging Peyton? ;-)
    I am too, very!

    That was awesome… If we had drafted Doug Martin we would be unstoppable ;-). I’m still in deep anguish over the fumbles but Willis still had a great game. I guess that is how Vikings fans feel with AP fumbling all the time.

    I really like Champs take on it all though of “one game at a time”. If at any point they take anyone for granted they will be in trouble. Record not with standing ALL of our remaining games will be hard, its the NFL ie… Any given Sunday! BUT this should be lots of fun going forward, by the time we get back to one of the teams we lost to, and we will have to, we should really be playing well together and they will see a completely different team.

    Clearly no more “whats wrong with Peyton” questions to be asked…

    Excellent game in all three phases, and against a quality opponent. DB’s are coming around, Traverthan, Wooyard and Brookings playing well. Offense is simply a machine. Peyton… nuh said.
    Broncos are BACK!!

  • Toxik Zine

    That bye week really set well this whole team, not only the D.

    How ’bout Hillman getting yards? nice.

    oh and loved that SD choke in Cleveland! ha!

    lol you know, he is still struggling on throws to the right side of the field a bit but from what I saw in week 1 to today, his arm looks WAY better and it looks to the point now even if he were to never improve beyond this point, he’s still deadly. As long as he doesn’t have a setback that causes regression, I think we may just be serious SB contenders in the erratic AFC.

  • TheTroglodyte

    More importantly then my specific thoughts on Peyton though was that we played well for 4 quarters in every phase. That’s what I have needed desperately to see because I haven’t seen us play like we did last night in 3 or 4 years.

  • Doom92

    The thing with Peyton that got me was his cadence at the line of scrimmage only 2 times before the forth quarter did they run the ball that he didn’t call out “Omaha”. I thought that was real strange, if I can pick that out from my recliner then the Def for sure knew that every time he said “Omaha” it was going to be a run. And this was not an audible it was the play. On passes its “Hurry Hurry”…

    Then in the forth qtr every time he would audible to “Sally” it was a run. This is either the first game I clued into it (paid attention) or its the first time they have done that. Once again if I can pick it up???

  • Toxik Zine

    hmm I’ll have to listen back i guess.

  • Ronald

    From Indy, Love watching your (our) QB at work, you have a great team, you should have no problem winning your division, lets go for the SB now.

  • 350legend

    Super hyped right now, of the way we playing as a team!! Broncos up!!!

  • BroncosWin

    those are protections not plays…. lmfao fail

    front runner

    This board is for Broncos fans not dik riders…. go jerk off to manning in your closet and get the hell on…

  • Doom92

    Yeah smart ass I know, what I was saying is that it wasn’t an audible. And every time he called it it was a run and when it was sally it was an audible to run… If every time you call that protection as you wish to call it you run the opposing D is going to know as well. Just seemed strange to me that it was the same over and over.

  • BroncosWin

    If defenses think they can pick up on what play is being called… it takes a simple adjustment to change to a secondary word…. no worries
