The reports of the demise of the Denver Broncos have been greatly exaggerated.
Despite most believing that Peyton Manning is “done”, the Broncos are 2-0 after winning two tough games against teams hoping to make the playoffs. The eureka moment came late in the win over Kansas City last week, as Manning found a rhythm in the second half, then led his team for the game-tying score.
The Lions are 0-2 and in a complete mess after two road losses to San Diego and Minnesota. Detroit went 11-5 in 2014.
The last time the two teams faced off, Detroit ruined Tebow Time with a 45-10 win.
