Gut Reaction: Week 1 - Broncos vs Colts

If you only watched the first half of tonight’s game, you would have assumed the rest of the season was a waste of time.

Hand the Broncos the AFC.

If you’d only watched the second half, well, you would have assumed the same thing. The only difference?

You’d hand the Broncos a top-ten draft pick.

And that was pretty much the game. It remains to be seen just how great this Broncos team is, despite the lofty predictions and expectations.

Crazy, stupid season.

Final Score: Broncos 31, Colts 24

What’s a Broncos season opener without multiple touchdown catches by Julius Thomas? Couldn’t tell you, actually.

Thomas, who scored twice in the 2013 season opener against Baltimore, caught seven passes for 104 yards and three scores.

Chiefs, Raiders lose on opening Sunday

They were never likely to challenge Denver for the AFCW title, but there's still something comforting about seeing the Chiefs and Raiders open in losing fashion.

Kansas City was throtttled by Tennessee 26-10 at home, while Oakland fell 19-14 to the Jets in New Jersey.

Gut Reaction: Texans @ Broncos, Preseason Game 3

Tonight in Denver, fall was in the air.

For the first time, it felt like football.

For the first time, I got antsy for the preseason to end.

Or maybe it was just the thought of Wes Welker headed to the locker room with a possible concussion.

As least Welker will have another week to heal. Otherwise, I’d say let’s skip Dallas and get right to the Colts.

Final Score: Texans 18, Broncos 17

Thanks to a last-minute comeback, the Texans edged the Broncos 18-17 (Gamebook) at SAF@MH on Saturday night.

Peyton Manning threw for 243 yards and two picturesque long touchdowns to Emmanuel Sanders, who returned from a nagging quad injury in electric fashion.

The free-agent steal acquisition caught five passes for 128 yards, including scoring plays of 67 and 29 yards to close out the first half.

Gut Reaction: Broncos @ 49ers, Preseason Game 2

It’s too bad the preseason means about as much as a political campaign ad. If things were different, the Broncos would be the hottest team in the NFL right now. In consecutive weeks, they’ve dispatched the Seahawks and 49ers, arguably the two toughest teams in the NFC.

Still, it’s okay to keep hope alive. The Broncos are going to be the frontrunners for awhile—at least until the playoffs.

And don’t forget, they’re still short veterans Chris Harris and Von Miller.

Who said politics can’t be fun?
