Broncography: Brandon Marshall

Without warning, the outside door was suddenly flung open. Knowing what might happen, Brandon picked up the smallest child - one of his cousins - and fled to a bedroom.

He could hear his mother Barbara and his older brother Marcus yelling at a figure. It was his own father who was screaming and threatening them. Another younger cousin ran to a different bedroom. But Brandon’s father chased the child down when it was heard dialing for help. He slapped the phone to the floor, knocking it from the child’s hand.

From there, Barbara faced him down in the bathroom, where the adults' yelling turned to scuffling. Brandon crept to the doorway of the bathroom. He saw the furious look on his father’s face as he left the residence. It has stayed with him over the years.

They’re still the Bungles, after all

Happy Friday, Broncos fans! Thursday night brought another dud, as Cleveland (6-3) dealt a 24-3 drubbing to their in-state rival Bengals (5-3-1).

The Browns are now tied with Pittsburgh atop the AFCN, and have already won their most games since 2007, when they missed the playoffs at 10-6.

Cleveland outgained Cincy 368-165 and picked off Andy Dalton three times, holding him to a measly 72 net passing yards.

Montee Ball the latest Bronco to slim down

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Montee Ball has made a limited return to practice this week, but it's unclear whether he'll play Sunday.

Ball is down to 210 pounds from a pre-appendectomy weight of 224 and pre-groin injury weight of 220, and much like Von Miller, says he's loving his leaner build.

But even with Ronnie Hillman's struggles at New England, Montee is under no illusion that the starting gig will be handed back to him.

Broncos still #1, if barely

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! As one might have suspected, the Broncos' statistical ratings have taken something of a hit after their latest Foxboro debacle.

They're still ranked #1 overall according to Advanced Football AnalyticsFootball Outsiders, and PFR, but their lead in each site's metric has slimmed considerably.

Again, we can take comfort in that SRS says Denver has faced the toughest schedule to date, and the slate should ease up substantially.

The AFC is clearly this year’s power conference

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Indy (6-3) joined Denver and Pittsburgh in the AFC's six-win club with a 40-24 disembowelment of the Giants (3-5).
