That’s Good Broncos: Broncos @ Chargers

The Bears are descending into a dumpster fire

Good Morning, Broncos fans! New Orleans pounded Chicago in a 31-15 Monday night beatdown that wasn't nearly as close as the final score indicates.

After the NFCS leading Saints (6-8) took a 24-0 advantage into the fourth quarter, the Bears (5-9) tacked on two late touchdown passes from Jay Cutler.

It was a quintessential performance from the sulkmaster, who threw three interceptions, took seven sacks, and fumbled once. Afterward, Cutty bolted early from his own presser, escaping before the local scribes could show up.

A day after guaranteeing that the Broncos would win the Super Bowl, pending free agent Terrance Knighton said he'd like to remain in Denver, perhaps even at a slight discount to the market.

So Denver is definitely where I want to be, and when that time comes, if they're in the ballpark, I'll be a Bronco.

Danny Trevathan to undergo surgery for patellar dislocation

Danny Trevathan's 2014 season looks to be over after 100 defensive snaps and three separate injuries to his left knee. The third-year linebacker will undergo surgery to repair a patellar dislocation.

Trevathan first missed time with a broken bone below his left knee suffered during training camp. He returned to play most of Denver's Week 5 win over Arizona, but left the next week after just two snaps against the Jets. The second time, he broke a bone above that same knee. Sunday marked his return to play from that second injury, and he saw 42 snaps before leaving in the second half.

Danny Trevathan says he suffered hyperextended knee on Sunday

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As expected, the league's bungled handling of the Adrian Peterson case is back in the news.

The NFLPA filed suit against the NFL on Monday morning, challenging the decision to uphold Peterson's six-game suspension.

According to the suit, league exec Troy Vincent promised Peterson reinstatement after an initial two-game suspension, with credit for his time spent on the commissioner's exempt list.

Gut Reaction: Week 15 - Broncos 22, Chargers 10

Sometimes even Batman has to throw up at halftime.

Perhaps, as Bruce Wayne, he ate a tainted Double Bacon 6Cheese™. Perhaps he couldn’t fit the Batmobile into the parking lot at Walgreens during flu shot week. Perhaps the thought of running the ball so much made him sick.

At the end of the day, it didn’t matter. The AFC West is the villain that always gets it in the end. The Jokers, the Riddlers, and the Penguins (or Chargers, Chiefs, and Raiders, if you prefer) all go down.

Final Score: Broncos 22, Chargers 10 (Updated)

The Broncos (11-3) clinched their fourth consecutive AFCW title with a plodding 22-10 victory (Game Book) at San Diego (8-6) on Sunday.

Peyton Manning overcame flu-like symptoms and a thigh injury to complete 14 of 20 passes for the second straight week, among them a touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas (six catches, 123 yards).

Connor Barth was flawless on five field goal attempts for the second time in his three games with Denver, and C.J. Anderson fought his way for 96 yards on 31 touches. Aqib Talib and Rahim Moore helped seal the win with fourth quarter interceptions of Philip Rivers.
