John Elway and John Fox reaffirmed their faith in Brock Osweiler’s development. “I’m thrilled with his progress so far,” Elway said.
John Fox defended his end-game decisions, citing percentages for a third-and-7 run and his players’ mindset for the kneeldown at the end of regulation.
The reasons for the loss go much deeper than just Rahim Moore being beaten deep. Some were within the control of Peyton Manning and the Broncos; some were not.
Only four quarterbacks have ever done what Peyton Manning will try to do: take a team to a Super Bowl in his first season with that club.
Demaryius Thomas is expected back at practice by Monday, since his shoulder injury “doesn’t appear to be real serious,” John Fox said.
The Broncos liked Boise State’s Doug Martin on draft day last April. But the Bucs liked him enough to trade up with Denver to get him.
By leading the Broncos to victory Sunday, Peyton Manning assured their first successive regular-season wins in Kansas City since the 1970s.
Peyton Manning was only a secondary story to the pass rush and special teams, which accounted for 20 of the Broncos’ 36 points Sunday.
John Fox returns to Charlotte Sunday, and his Broncos will face a Panthers team that has been plagued by near-misses against elite foes.
Sunday, John Fox returns to Carolina, where he served as head coach nine seasons. Motivation won’t be a problem, although he downplays it.
