Most of the teams in the NFL use the next to last game of the preseason as it’s dress rehearsal for the regular year. Some teams play starters into third quarter to work on all facets of the game unilaterally. On offense, the Broncos seemed to be focused on one thing: Manning to Emmanual Sanders. They have been working on fine tuning the connecntion all camp, but have not been able to get on the same page in the exhibition games. That was until the Swearinger incident. Then the two connected on TD passes of 67 and 29 yards in the final two minutes of the first half. Sanders took to Twitter to express his comfort level with the future hall of famer.
I am expecting fun times provided by this combination in 2014.
