Yup, we’re still wringing hands over Von Miller’s muscle fibers…

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Now that Denver's Week 11 home game against Kansas City has been flexed, the team is at the primetime limit.

The Broncos have already played three night games (Baltimore, Oakland, at Indy), and will now play three more (Kansas City, at New England, San Diego).

That brings them to the league-mandated limit of six primetime games, and leaves CBS with only eight Denver matchups for the year.

CBS has four of Denver's last five games, but of course, there's always the chance that some of them are rendered relatively moot if the team locks in its playoff seed earier.

Broncos

Compared to the first half of the 2012 season, Denver's offense has run 10% more plays, had 15% more possessions, and scored 50% more points.

Matt Russell was in court on Friday regarding his DUI arrest and is due back there next month.

Matt Bowen explains how personnel and play design got Joel Dreessen so wide open for his game-tying touchdown; says Denver caught Washington in a bad defensive call on Knowshon Moreno's 35-yard screen touchdown.

Andrew Mason counts down his five biggest Broncos defensive plays from the first half of the season.

Yes, Jeff Legwold is still banging the ridiculous Von Miller fast-twitch fiber drum, even suggesting that his Rolodex buddies agree with his bizarre take. Never mind that in just two games, Von's already racked up the highest season grade among all Broncos defenders, and the highest pass-rush grade among 4-3 outside linebackers in the entire league, according to PFF.

Josh Katzowitz predicts Peyton Manning will set a new single-season league mark for passing yards, and that the Broncos will win the Super Bowl.

News

Jacksonville wideout Justin Blackmon - who sat the season's first four games due to suspension, but came back in time to torch Champ Bailey time and again - has again been banned, this time for the rest of the season, for violation of the substance abuse policy.

Minnesota will trot out Christian Ponder as its starting QB at Dallas on Sunday; as feared, Cincy DT Geno Atkins is done for the year with a torn ACL; Carolina will activate RB Jonathan Stewart from the PUP list today; New Orleans dumped CB Chris Carr.

The D.C. Council will consider a resolution regarding the blatantly racist name of Washington's football franchise, while the San Francisco Chronicle has decided to stop using the name in print.

The NFL's Biggest Jerks

Considering that he's widely considered the dirtiest player in the league, it shouldn't be particularly surprising that Richie Incognito is considered a prime suspect in the alleged hazing that led Jonathan Martin to leave the Dolphins.

This isn't at all to suggest that he shouldn't have fired the guy, but Jerrah Jones's treatment of Tom Landry and his family (at least, as retold by them) was apparently quite dickish.

Analysis

All-22 analysis: Greg Cosell breaks down Terrelle Pryor's 93-yard touchdown run; Doug Farrar studies the play of Seattle safety Earl Thomas.

Andy Benoit, Robert Mays, Jason La Canfora, and John Clayton preview Week 9; Bill Simmons makes his picks.

Matt Bowen and Bill Barnwell checks in on the read option and how well it's being used around the league.

Maths

According to PFF, Denver's offensive line has allowed the fewest unblocked pressures, while its defense has notched the fifth most (tie).

As a result, Peyton Manning has (obviously) not taken very many quick sacks.

Quite strangely, Calvin Johnson has been tackled at the one-yard line a whopping seven times over the past two seasons.
