The Broncos will wear their hideous navy on navy uniforms next week on SNF against the Niners.
Normally, I wouldn't bother writing a separate entry on such an item.
Although the Patriots bounced back from their Week 4 embarrassment at KC with a pair of big wins, Sunday's victory over Buffalo came with a massive toll.
As expected, New England has lost linebacker Jerod Mayo and running back Stevan Ridley to season-ending knee injuries.
Danny Trevathan will again miss several weeks with a broken bone near his left kneecap.
According to John Fox, the injury is just above the knee and to the side.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Yes, Ronnie Hillman did look pretty good on Sunday.
It's great that he hit the 100-yard mark in his first career start, and that it went a long way to helping Denver win.
There was still that fumble.
Dallas (5-1) outdistanced Seattle (3-2) handily in yards (401-206), first downs (23-9), and TOP (37:39-22:21) on their way to a 30-23 road win over the defending champs.
DeMarco Murray topped 100 yards for the sixth straight week, while the reborn Rolando McClain ensured the Cowboys' upset with a late interception of Russell Wilson.
The Patriots (4-2) proved again that they're far from dead with a 37-22 win at Buffalo (3-3) on Sunday.
Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes, but running back Stevan Ridley exited with what's feared to be a torn ACL.
San Diego (5-1) remained a half-game ahead of Denver (4-1) with a 31-28 shootout win over Oakland (0-5).
Philip Rivers tossed three touchdown passes, while Branden Oliver scored once and topped 100 yards for the second straight week.
“It’s so f#$king easy! It’s so easy!”
That’s how Julius Thomas described today’s game after his second touchdown.
But it really wasn’t. Don’t let the score fool you. The Jets had the ball and were one score away from tying the game with a minute left to play.
Lucky for the Broncos, the Jets were 95 yards away and Geno Smith was their quarterback.
Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes, two of them to Julius Thomas, and Ronnie Hillman hit the 100-yard mark in his first NFL start.
Demaryius Thomas added 10 catches for 124 yards and a score, Von Miller notched two sacks, and Aqib Talib iced the game with a late pick-six.
