in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Jacksonville Jaguars won the statistical battle, but that was of little consolation on Sunday. The Houston Texans came away with a 24-21 victory over the Jaguars at EverBank Field.

Jaguars’ Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 265 yards and two touchdowns. It was another throw that played a huge role in determining the outcome. His fourth pass attempt of the…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Peyton Manning surveyed the landscape of his brilliant career and called one last audible. He’s retiring a champion. A month after Denver’s triumph in Super Bowl 50, Manning informed John Elway he is following his lead and riding off into that orange sunset just like the Broncos’ boss did 17 years ago after winning his second Super Bowl. Just shy of 40, Manning will forgo $19 million and a 19th season in the NFL, where he served as both a…

On November 29, the New England Patriots came into Denver to face the Broncos sporting a 10-0 record. The Broncos were 8-2 and looking to post a signature win on an uncertain season.

Broncos vow not to make same mistake and overlook Steelers

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Pittsburgh Steelers stagger into Denver with an ailing Ben Roethlisberger, who won’t have his leading rusher or his top receiver against the league’s best defense Sunday. So what? The Steelers (11-6) are deep even without All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown (concussion) and running back DeAngelo Williams (foot), and the Broncos insist Big Ben can go deep even with a sprained throwing shoulder. The Broncos (12-4) swear they won’t make the same mistake they did last year, either. They were in…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

It isn’t exactly Peyton Manning against Andy Dalton. Still, both the Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals need to win the Monday night football game between the two. So what if it’s Brock Osweiler vs. A.J. McCarron? The Broncos are 10-4, but they’ve gone 3-4 over the past seven weeks and they’ve lost two in a row.

Is No. 18’s 18th NFL season coming to a premature end?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

What if this is it for Peyton Manning? While many of his teammates won’t dare consider the notion, at least one prominent member of the Denver Broncos has considered the possibility that No. 18’s 18th NFL season could come to a premature end. “I’m not going to lie, I’ve pondered it a little bit,” leading tackler Brandon Marshall said. “But I try not to think about it too much because I know we’ve got a job to do, I know…
