QUICKLY:

* The Broncos held a 10-7 lead in the third quarter against Pittsburgh last week on Monday Night Football before the Steelers pulled away for a 28-10 victory.
* Denver’s current roster features 32 players in their first season with the club (58.2 percent of its roster including reserve lists). The Broncos’ 28 new players on its opening game 53-man roster tied for the sixth most in the league since 1994.
* Head Coach Josh McDaniels was named the head coach on Pro Football Weekly’s and Peter King’s (Sports Illustrated) midseason All-Pro teams.

OFFENSE:

* WR Brandon Marshall set a Broncos Monday Night Football record with a season-best 11 receptions (112 yds.) against Pittsburgh. His effort against the Steelers marked his seventh 10-catch game and eighth 100-yard receiving performance in the last three years.
* C Casey Wiegmann has played every possible offensive snap (8,546) dating back to 2001 for the longest such streak in the NFL.
* On pace to set or tie personal bests for a season in every major passing category, QB Kyle Orton owns the sixth-best career winning percentage (.659 / 27-14) by an active passer in the NFL.

DEFENSE:

* Coached by long-time NFL defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, the Broncos rank third in the NFL in yards per play allowed (4.7), yards per game allowed (280.3) and points per game allowed (15.5).
* OLB/DE Elvis Dumervil is tied for the NFL lead with an AFC-best 10.5 sacks. Since he entered the NFL in 2006, his 36.5 sacks lead his conference.
* With the signing of five-time Pro Bowl CB Ty Law on Nov. 7, the Broncos’ secondary features three players with a combined 20 Pro Bowl selections (CB Champ Bailey-8, S Brian Dawkins-7).

SPECIAL TEAMS:

* LS Lonie Paxton enters Sunday’s game having appeared in 99 consecutive games (regular season and playoffs). He joined the Broncos in the offseason after spending the previous nine years with New England.
* ILB/FB Spencer Larsen has registered two special-teams tackles in each of Denver’s previous two games after missing the club’s first six contests due to an injury.

“All Ready”- Darrent Williams


"You play for so long, they're all hostile environments. There are a couple of fans that I recognize from behind our bench that have been pretty fun over the years to listen to as they try to get after you. He's pretty good at it, too. I don't know his name, but he's pretty good sitting behind the bench. It can be a very intimidating place if you allow it to (be), just like every opposing team that has passionate fans. This is no different." – Brian Dawkins


"We have just got to do a better job of executing over the course of 60 minutes against teams like Baltimore and Pittsburgh, and if we do, then the games will be competitive just like the first half of the season has been. That's the kind of game that we are going to play in. That's the kind of team we are."–Josh McDaniels

"Really, from week to week, all you can do is focus on that week. On a short week like this, we have got so much to do in three days to move on to Washington. Really, all of our thoughts are behind us for Pittsburgh and Baltimore and all those games. We have got enough to worry about with Washington to come out and play a good game." –Kyle Orton


"Initially I was a little upset about it, but I moved on pretty quick, I mean, if they didn't want me, then I don't want to be there. It worked out fine for me." -Champ Bailey

"this is great situation. Here I can work my way in. There are established guys, guys like Champ and Andre Goodman. And all the guys back there, they communicate, they know how to play. These are players who know how to conduct themselves. I don't have to be somebody's daddy off the field and I just told them just hang in there with me, give me a little time and I can help. I believe that." -Ty Law





Time for an Orange uprising...

We will be victorious!

Skins actually have a good defense.

I expect a very conservative approach from us today, play the field position game and try and grind it out.

15-10 to Denver is my guess.

31-13 Broncos

I have a feeling that coach feels we need a dominating performance today to show the league that we are still a good team and we only lost to 2 of the best D's in the league.


Look for us to run outside and take some shots this game!

I had been thinking about betting big on the Broncos to win all week long... then it hit me.

December 13th, 2007. We walked into Houston for a Thursday game against the Texans. With Rosenfells starting, and guys like Darius Walker and Ron Dayne in Houston's backfield, it looked like it should have been an easy win.

But it wasn't. Was it?

Houston established the run game and Rosenfells was able to make key conversions. Their defense jumped down our throat and pushed us around the entire game.

Washington has the ability to do it to us again. They have a rosenfells-like QB, average at best running backs, and a solid defense (top 5 in the league, surprisingly)

We have shown that, while we are a different team than years past, we still have problems stopping the run. Perhaps we will stack the box and make Campbell beat us. This is what I'm afraid of, he can definitely do this if he's on his game. That's where the 3-4 comes in.

Nolan, pay attention. One of the major benefits of the 3-4 SHOULD be that we are able to get pressure with less blitzers. The whole idea of the 3-4 is to confuse the pass blockers and get the pressure of 8 men with only 6, so to speak. If you are going to blitz 8 men, why even try to disguise it? You are just sending a wall of players and leaving large chunks of the field wide open. It's one of the reasons that the second half against Pittsburgh reminded many of the AFC Championship game. Different scheme, same blitz technique, same results.

Let's get back to the trickery, let's get back to Dawkins hitting the QB, and let's stop running backs who have no business starting football games. Can we win this game? Yes. Should we win this game? Definitely. Will we? I think so, but I'm still not ready to bet the house.

The skins have a decent defense.As it was mentioned before, the Ravens and the Steelers may have provided the blue print to stop our offense and this could actually be a defensive struggle match.With that said, we should win this game by the strength of just being the better team.The skins have always played us tough.
