One Last Note…

The Denver Broncos are flat out getting it done in a big way on both offense and defense. Besides their dog fight in Seattle, the Broncos have been relatively dominant in every game they’ve played in thus far.

If you’ve forgotten, Denver owns the toughest schedule among any contender. They’ve already had to play six playoff teams from last season and, yes, I’m counting the Arizona Cardinals because they went 10-6 in 2013 and now have a record of 5-1, which is basically tied for best in the NFC with the Dallas Cowboys.

Yet, even the Cardinals felt the wrath of the Broncos as they were routed 41-20 in Mile High.

No team has truly been able to match Denver position for position. Even if they played the Seahawks today on a neutral field, there’s no possible way the Broncos lose that game.

They’re clearly a much improved squad compared to last season’s inconsistent counterpart. Although Denver has to trudge through a rather difficult schedule, they’re still managing to make the best of teams look absolutely silly.

The Broncos head into their showdown with 5-2 New England Patriots looking to make another strong statement against their biggest threat in the AFC.
