Broncos promote Jeremy Stewart, waive Kapri Bibbs

As predicted by Lindsay Jones, the Broncos promoted running back Jeremy Stewart from their practice squad ahead of Sunday's game versus Miami.

To create room for Stewart on the roster, Denver cut Kapri Bibbs, with the intention of returning him to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Emmanuel Sanders didn’t like intent behind hit that concussed him

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Rams safety Rodney McLeod was not fined for his borderline hit that left Emmanuel Sanders with a concussion.

The wideout agreed with the league's decision from a rules standpoint, but he didn't appreciate how McLeod approached the play:

In terms of targeting, I felt like the guy could have gone for the ball. I think his intentions the whole time were to deliver a blow. That's the only thing I am not too happy about.

Don’t ever feel guilty about enjoying a Chiefs loss

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Let's all continue to laugh at the Chiefs, shall we?

What happened last night truly could not have been timed better, what with the fawning and fluffing that had immediately preceded it.

That the Raiders nearly blew the game by acting like they'd never been there before (well, it wasn't really acting; they hadn't been there before) was the icing on top.

Raiders’ first win in 368 days comes at just the right time

Oakland (1-10) pulled off the shocker on Thursday night, knocking off the rival first-place Chiefs (7-4) in a 24-20 victory.

The win broke a 16-game losing streak for the Raiders; their last win came November 17, 2013, and that was against a Texans team amidst their own 14-game losing streak.

Derek Carr led Oakland on a late 80-yard scoring drive, throwing a game-winning nine-yard touchdown pass to James Jones inside the two-minute warning.

Scouting the Broncos: Michael Schofield

In 2013, the Broncos needed to make a few changes on the offensive line. Manny Ramirez did a better job at center than J.D. Walton had. Chris Clark impressed at left tackle as Ryan Clady's understudy.

In 2014, Denver wanted to play its five best starters, so Clady was back at left tackle with Clark on the right side, although there were potential problems there. The Broncos entered minicamp looking to move Orlando Franklin, formerly the right takle, to left guard.

Understandably, the Broncos wanted to see if Clark could do equally well on the right edge. They brought in Winston Justice to ‘give him competition'. Unfortunately, left and right tackle often require different body types. They need different skillsets, too.

Manny Ramirez claims the Broncos offensive line never gets any credit (LOLZ)

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Recently waived veteran running backs Ben Tate and LeGarrette Blount have already found new (and old) homes.

Tate was claimed by Minnesota, which had a pressing need at the position due to Adrian Peterson's suspension.

Blount is, of course, headed back to New England, where he spent the 2013 season.

Praise for the Chiefs is reaching unbearable levels

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! As we mentioned last week, the effect that an individual game has on a yearlong statistical metric decreases as the season progresses. The sample grows.

It's easy for all of us to think after Sunday that the Broncos aren't nearly as good as we'd thought they were a month ago.

And while that may be true, their body of work is still the league's best, at least by some measures.
