Good Morning, Broncos fans! As big as Denver's victory was, they'll be right back to it with a road trip to Foxboro next weekend.
Fortunately, they'll have an extra day of rest on the Patriots (7-2), who travel to face the surging Panthers (6-3) and their monstrous defensive line tonight.
The biggest storyline will appropriately be the fourteenth showdown between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
But much attention will surely be paid the status of Wes Welker, who suffered a concussion on Sunday night.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Tonight's forecast is for temperatures in the thirties, with low humidity and winds in the single digits.
If attending tonight's game, you'll have some nice, crisp weather, and shouldn't need too many layers.
But you may want to bring your earplugs, this and every week.
According to auditory experts, people should only be exposed to the average noise level of an NFL game for 60 minutes at a clip.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! In advance of tomorrow's big matchup, let's check in on a couple familiar metrics.
PFR's Simple Rating System still has the Broncos (11.1) as the NFL's top team, albeit by a slim margin over the Panthers (10.5) and Seahawks (10.2); the Chiefs (6.8) are sixth.
Offensive SRS says Denver is by far the top team, while only three teams have a worse defensive SRS; Kansas City ranks 23rd and second, respectively.
PFF's overall cumulative grades paint a similar picture, with the Broncos (+180.8) atop the league and the Chiefs (107.1) ranking sixth.
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! For the third straight week, the Colts (7-3) got behind the first-half eight ball, spotting the host Titans (4-6) a 17-3 lead.
But unlike their 38-8 debacle against St. Louis last week, Indy stormed back for a 30-27 victory that provides them a three-game cushion in the AFCS and keeps their hopes for a first-round bye alive and well.
Donald Brown led the way with 94 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns, while Trent Richardson's 53 yards on 13 touches came mostly in the passing game.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! When Denver first acquired the since-retired John Moffitt, we saw it as a move of desperation - for Seattle in wanting rid of him, and Denver for taking on damaged goods.
Why damaged goods?
The only way Moffitt made it to the Broncos is that he failed a physical with the Browns a day prior.
It seemed strange at the time that Denver would ship off a player (Sealver Siliga) in return for one deemed not healthy enough for one of the league's bottomfeeders.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! This one should never have been in doubt, but the Chiefs are not about to bench Dwayne Bowe.
According to Ed Werder, Bowe will start on Sunday night despite his bye week arrest for speeding and marijuana possession.
Bowe's 33 receptions and two touchdowns lead KC's wideouts, while his 369 yards trail Donnie Avery's 396.
Jamaal Charles leads the team with 47 receptions, and he's right behind Avery with 389 receiving yards.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! In the MRSA/Bullies showdown Monday night, the Schiano Men got off the schneid with a 22-19 victory at home.
The Bucs (1-8) and Dolphins (4-5) combined for 477 yards (the Broncos average 459 per game), 335 of them through the air (Denver averages 353).
Tampa Bay blew a 15-0 lead but scored the go-ahead touchdown on an 80-yard fourth-quarter drive and held on for their first win of the year.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Denver's win pulled them back to within a game of the first place Chiefs, who had their bye in advance of the teams' SNF showdown at SAF@MH.
Of course, the focus until then will be on the right ankle of Peyton Manning, who will undergo an MRI today.
Woody Paige expects Corey Liuget's late and low hit to draw a fine from the NFL, but that won't help Manning heal up, or prevent other opponents from inflicting further damage.
The unfortunate reality is that in order for Peyton's ankle(s) to heal, the Broncos' offensive line is going to have to play nearly flawlessly, and for multiple weeks.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! After having kept mum throughout the maelstrom that's enveloped him, Richie Incognito is speaking up today.
Now, if one were to hazard guesses as to which network and football reporter would land an interview with a meathead/dirty player/accused bully/racist, the answers would come quite easily, right?
That's right, Incognito sat down for a one-on-one with Fox Sports and Jay Glazer, who once had Incognito as an MMA training client.
What could possibly go wrong?
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Over the years, we've directed a robust share of criticism toward well-traveled former Denver wideout Brandon Marshall.
But Brandon's willingness to candidly discuss his own problems, and his outspoken support for those suffering mental illness, have been quite commendable.
Marshall spoke earlier in the week about the mess in Miami, and his comments stand out as some of the most well-considered from any current or former players.
