I don't expect to do it. You don't really want to do that too much. I guess it's just instincts taking over. It just happens.
Physical, tough. He’s actually like a running back out there, but with receiver skills. It’s crazy, because he creates some matchup problems. He’ll do everything to get open.
Jim Caldwell had a tremendous influence on me as my quarterbacks coach. He was very organized, very detail-oriented, which I’m a fan of that philosophy, and he and I got into a good routine in meetings and on the practice field every day for the time we were together when he was my quarterbacks…read more
I’ve just grown to have that fanatical effort and pursuit to the ball no matter what’s going on. That’s what’s been working for me, and that’s what I do.
It was important to start fast. We had a couple third downs in that drive. It was important for us to come out and make a statement on the opening drive of the ballgame.
I feel good about all our linebacking crew. D.J., [we’re] obviously getting him back and getting him more familiar as we move along in our new defensive system. [LB] Danny Trevathan’s playing a lot in those roles so we feel confident in both those guys.
I have never had a TD catch in my entire life. The last time I scored a touchdown was as a freshman in high school. It feels pretty good; it still is a little surreal. I will do whatever I can to help the team out.

The last time the Broncos had an 8-3 record was 2005, when they advanced to the AFC championship game. The last time they were better than 8-3 was when they won their last Super Bowl in the 1998 season.
Knowshon's had a great attitude. Things haven't gone perfect for him. I knew he would perform well. I think his teammates knew he would perform well, and he did. We're proud of his effort.
Only quarterbacks have a won-loss record placed alongside their name and so Manning got credit for win No. 148 in his regular-season career, tying him for No. 2 all-time. The quarterback Manning just tied? John Elway. Talk about a tie where both parties win.
(He's) probably the most dangerous tight end in football. You've got the guys up in New England, but he's definitely up there...I'm confident that I can cover Gates. I'm sure he's confident that he can block me too in pass rushing. I guess we'll just have to see on Sunday.
Manning has been virtually unstoppable in the final 15 minutes this season, having completed 55-of-86 passes (64 percent) for 651 yards to go with nine touchdowns (42.9 percent of his season total) and no interceptions.
