Your take on Broncos-Bengals … in six words or less

CINCINNATI – There’s no crowing about a 69-14 margin over six quarters now; although the Broncos extended that run to 86-17 after Trindon Holliday’s kickoff return for a touchdown, they allowed as many points in the next 15 minutes, 39 seconds as they’d conceded in the previous 120.

But it was a gut check against a team that was in the playoffs last year — one that was more than willing to test the Broncos’ most experienced, seasoned and decorated defender. And eventually, they passed.

Not every win is going to scrape the ceiling of this team’s potential; this one didn’t, and there might be some balky moments in the next few games, as well. But they left the week where they entered it: in first place with a one-game lead over the Chargers.

And for that, Broncos fans breathed a relieved sigh and moved on.

Bengals killed themselves. We got lucky.

Taking care of business, every (Sun)day.

Homer Simpson said it best: “It’s BTO — they’re Canada’s answer to ELP. Their big hit was TCB. That’s how we talked in the 70′s. We didn’t have a moment to spare.”
