I grew up a Bengals fan - trust me a thankless profession - which is why I left the dark side in the early 90's and followed the Broncos (Plus I moved to CO which helped).

I cant help but remember the pain of the 2000 game. The Broncos were 4-3, the Bengals 0-6. I remember expecting the Broncos would kick Cincinnati's butt from one side of the field to the other, and I trashed talked my old Cincinnati fans appropriately. Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way. Corey Dillon ran for 278 yards, and the Broncos lost the game 21-31. Dillon set a single game rushing record that day, and it still stands at #4.

If you are into pain, the ugly stats are here: http://www.pro-football-reference.co...0010220cin.htm

That was a painful day. A trap game for the Broncos. Will Sunday be another trap game? I doubt it. But to ignore the possibility would be unwise.

Absolute truth. I think the defense is quite a bit better now than it was then too.

But Im not going to wreck the mojo, so Ill predict Cincinnati will rush for 10 touchdowns, and for mercy will kick a field goal on their last possession for a 73-2 win. We get a safety when they try to bring a punt out of the end zone.

Oh wait, wrong thread.

Never mind.

For those interested in a really good analysis of a few of Peyton's favorite offensive plays and how they work, there is an excellent writeup from "Stripe Hype?" Anyway, it is an excellent primer on how many of the plays are set up.

Here is a screen shot of the first "Anchor Route" concept:
