Good Morning, Broncos fans! All of the talk recently has rightly been about Peyton Manning. But what about his backup?
In his latest mailbag, Mike Klis says he can't see Brock Osweiler signing a second contract if Manning plays out his own deal, which runs through 2016.
Brock is signed through 2015, and has attempted all of 21 passes in his 2.4 seasons.
Denver's Wednesday injury report is a carbon copy of Tuesday's; Brandon McManus (groin), Steven Johnson (ankle), Omar Bolden (concussion), and Montee Ball (groin) were again held out.
Ball is improving and did some conditioning work, but he'll miss Thursday's game against San Diego; Johnson and Bolden are also expected to sit.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Pittsburgh (4-3) used a wild three-touchdown flurry before halftime to take down Houston (3-4) on MNF.
Houston went up 13-0 halfway through the second quarter, and Pittsburgh kicked a field goal with 3:08 remaining before half.
From there, all hell broke loose, at least from Houston's perspective.
Thursday's game against San Diego will probably be one of those 23-20 slugfests.1
That gives us just under three days to pretend the Broncos are going to continue on the exact same pace they've established over six games.
Of course, it's extra fun to do this after a 42-17 all-phases blowout win over a supposed SB contender.
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs from their practice squad and waived his fellow ex-CSU Ram Shaq Barrett to make room for him.
According to Mike Klis, Denver called up Bibbs to prevent other teams from signing him.
Since the moment he signed in Denver, it's been all about Peyton Manning, and that's true today more than ever.
On Sunday night, Peyton broke one of the greatest individual records in sports, and showed that whenever he retires, he's likely to have reset the bar in another stratosphere.
This is, naturally, as fine a time as any to celebrate Manning's illustrious career, even while he shows no signs of slowing down.
As wins over Seattle and Buffalo became a significant streak with victories over the lesser Jags and Jets, San Diego had done wonders to overcome injuries.
But then they barely squeaked past Oakland last week, and on Sunday, they lost at home to Kansas City, allowing the Chiefs 154 rushing yards and 39 minutes of TOP.
Records are made to be broken, so they say.
When Peyton Manning is involved, though, they are simply broken to be made again. And again. And Again.
With every touchdown pass he throws, Manning rewrites the record books in orange and blue.
Is there any reason to think Manning can’t throw another 100 touchdowns as a Bronco?
No. No there is not.
Peyton Manning threw for 318 yards and four touchdown passes, with his third breaking Brett Favre's all-time mark.
Two of them went to Demaryius Thomas, whose eight catches went for 171 yards.
