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.

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.

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?

Peyton Manning (120.8 QB rating), Brock Osweiler (125.5), and Zac Dysert (116.9) were impressive and efficient, while the defensive and kick coverage units added four turnovers and eight passes defensed.

Kayvon Webster (ankle) and Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) were held out, while rookie linebacker Lamin Barrow departed with what is being called a severely bruised lower right leg.
