Now that’s what Demaryius Thomas, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos needed.
For the first time this season, the Broncos put together a complete game in their 41-20 rout of the Arizona Cardinals. For the first time this season, they buried their opponent when they had the chance.
The scrappy nature of the Cardinals kept the game close through three quarters. After the Arizona (3-1) touchdown to make it 24-20, you could hear Broncos Country say the same thing: “Here we go again.”
But give Denver (3-1) credit. The Broncos didn’t let the frustration get to them and they played their game. Denver realized, finally, when it plays to its strengths this is the result. Amazing how that happens.
Here are the players who deserve game balls after the Broncos’ win.
