Latest Updates

 

Broncos PK Brandon McManus make them all Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Broncos placekicker Brandon McManus opened the scoring Sunday against the Jets with a 37-yard field goal, then spent the rest of the afternoon watching Peyton Manning drive his team into the end zone.

McManus made good on all four of his extra point efforts.


Broncos DST wears down in Super Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) The Broncos DST started strong in the Super Bowl but eventually wore down as the unit was repeatedly put in bad positions by Denver's offense. The Broncos got no sacks or turnovers and gave up 341 total yards.

Denver did a nice job bottling up Marshawn Lynch, holding him to 39 yards on 15 carries. It didn't matter as Russell Wilson threw for a pair of touchdowns, Lynch punched in a 1-yard touchdown and Seattle scored on an interception return and kickoff return.

Linebacker Danny Trevathan was one of the few bright spots for Denver. He made a game-high 12 tackles, one for loss.


Matt Prater, Sione Fua red-lighted for Saturday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2014) An illness prevented Broncos placekicker Matt Prater from his third consecutive practice on Saturday. Prater was in the building, but was sent home, according to ESPN. The only other non-participant was defensive tackle Sione Fua (calf).

Two out, two limited Friday for Broncos


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) A knee injury that prevented Broncos defensive lineman Mitch Unrein from practicing Thursday had him limited on Friday. Also limited was running back Knowshon Moreno (rib).

Placekicker Matt Prater (illness) and defensive lineman Sione Fua (calf) were out.


Matt Prater sick and sidelined on Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) Broncos placekicker Matt Prater, who booted four field goals in the AFC title game win over New England, missed Thursday practice with an illness.

Broncos DST stuffs the run


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) The Patriots entered the AFC Championship Game with a dominant running game, but the Broncos DST stuffed them cold. Denver allowed 11 rushing yards in the first half, 64 in all. The Broncos held LeGarrette Blount to 6 yards on five carries.

Denver also got decent pressure on Tom Brady, with defensive tackle Terrance Knighton and defensive end Robert Ayers recording sacks. The Broncos did not force a turnover.

After giving up 16 points and 320 total yards in the victory, the Broncos DST will prepare for the Seahawks or 49ers in Super Bowl XLVIII.


Broncos place two as first-team All-Pros


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning heads a list of first-team All-Pros named on that team by the Associated Press. Also so honored was guard Louis Vasquez. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and placekicker Matt Prater are on the second team.

Broncos keep Oakland ground game in check


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Broncos turned in another dominant performance during Sunday's regular season finale against the Raiders in Oakland.

Denver held Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden each under 10 rushing yards. The defense sacked Terrelle Pryor twice and recovered a fumble, as they surrendered 255 yards of total offense in a 34-14 defeat.

The Broncos will receive a first-round bye before starting their postseason campaign.

Rahim Moore suffers undisclosed setback


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2013) Broncos defensive back Rahim Moore suffered a setback in his recovery from a leg injury, the Denver Post reported Friday. According to the report, Moore's setback has kept him from even being able to run yet, putting his chances of coming off injured reserve at some point this season at risk.

Moore is not eligible to return until the AFC Championship game, at the earliest. 


Broncos intercept two passes in win


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) The Broncos intercepted Matt Schaub twice in Sunday's 37-13 victory over the Texans. The unit also sacked Schaub three times, while allowing Houston to score just 13 points. 

This was the first time since Week 8 the Broncos have intercepted multiple passes. It was the third straight game with multiple sacks. 

The Broncos face the Raiders in Week 17. When the teams faced off in Week 3, the Broncos had just three sacks and no interceptions en route to a five-Fantasy point performance. 


Broncos have some sleeper appeal in Week 16


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) The Broncos have been a tough defense to start lately, with just one game in the last six producing at least 10 Fantasy points.

But Week 16 brings a matchup against the Texans, who have been a bit of a boon for defenses; DSTs have scored the fourth-most points, on average, when facing the Texans this season. The Colts DST scored 22 last week against Houston, forcing three fumbles, intercepting two passes, and recording four sacks. 

The Broncos have intercepted two total passes over the last six games and have allowed opponents to score 27 or more points over their last four. They aren't the strongest unit, but they have a solid matchup. If the top streaming options are already taken, the Broncos have one of the better matchups among the league's lower-end options. 


Broncos DST can't hold up Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The Broncos DST unit held strong despite being on the field for nearly two-thirds of the game Thursday, but eventually faltered in a 27-20 loss to the Chargers in Week 15.

The Broncos held the Chargers to just 338 yards of total offense, but the Chargers still found the end zone three times, all within a 15-minute span in the second and third quarters. That would be all San Diego needed, as the Broncos failed to force a single turnover, and managed only two sacks in the loss.

The Broncos have now allowed at least 27 points in four straight games, heading into Week 16 against the Texans in Houston. 


Broncos DST a bit unpredictable


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2013) The Broncos have put together a string of erratic DST performances this year, with six double-digit Fantasy games, but only one coming after their Week 9 bye.

They've failed to record a sack just once this season, but have managed only two interceptions in the last five games. And in that five-game span, opposing teams have scored 28 or more points three times against the DST. 

In Week 10, the Broncos faced the Chargers (their opponent this Thursday night) and scored just eight Fantasy points. While the prospects will be a little better for Denver in Week 15 (a short turnaround, the Chargers having to play in the thin air with little preparation), it's not necessarily a recipe for a 20-point performance. 

The Broncos are a decent low-end risk for Week 15, but there may be better options available on your waiver wire. 


Broncos DST can't stop the run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Broncos DST was carved up on the ground Week 14 against the Titans.

Tennessee jumped out to a lead early, scoring on their first two drives. The Broncos had trouble with the run early, allowing three rushing touchdowns before halftime. Denver eventually held Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene in check, but the damage had already been done. Outside of Justin Hunter, the team did a great job limiting Tennessee's receivers. They were also without Champ Bailey for the game. Denver will take on the Chargers Week 15. 


Broncos DST an average play Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) The Broncos DST is an average play Week 14 against the Titans.

Tennessee has been about middle of the pack against opposing defenses, allowing them to score 9.33 Fantasy points per game. The Titans can hardly be considered an offensive juggernaut, though. The team has averaged 22 points per game, which ranks 21st in the league. They have done a good job limiting sacks, but are susceptible to fumbling. 

Denver hasn't exactly been strong on defense, though. The team has given up 26.4 points per game, which ranks 26th in the league. The Broncos aren't especially strong at taking the ball away from opponents either. Denver has been successful against weaker offenses, holding the Jaguars and the Chiefs under 20 points, so it's possible they could have some success against the Titans. They shouldn't be viewed as a strong Fantasy play regardless of the matchup.


Report: Trindon Holliday doesn't have serious shoulder injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Broncos kick returner Trindon Holliday left Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a shoulder injury, but the early prognosis is that it's not a serious injury and he might not miss any time, according to NFL.com.

Broncos DST has a tough time with Kansas City


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) The Broncos DST had a rough game Week 13 against the Chiefs. 

Denver allowed the Chiefs to score 28 points. It was the fifth game this season that a Denver opponent was able to score at least 25 points. The Broncos were unable to put pressure on quarterback Alex Smith. Though Smith did throw an interception, the team was not able to pick up any sacks or recover any fumbles. 

Denver will look for more Week 14 against the Titans. 


Broncos defense has struggled away from home


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Just two weeks after Denver handed Kansas City its first loss, the AFC West rivals meet again Week 13. The Broncos defense held Kansas City to 17 points and 344 yards (200 passing) Week 11 and will be looking for another strong defensive effort Sunday.

The Broncos defense is reeling from a second-half meltdown Week 12 at New England, as it blew a 24-point halftime lead. Statistically, the Broncos have a pretty bad defense. They rank 26th in total defense, allowing 378 yards per game, and 26th in scoring defense, allowing 26.3 points per game.

The Chiefs racked up a season-high 38 points and 491 yards Week 12 vs. San Diego. Kansas City is averaging 25 points per game in six home games.

The Broncos do have the game plan to slow down the Chiefs' offense, but this time they won't have homefield advantage. The Broncos have been a pretty bad defense on the road, yielding 32.8 points per game.

DSTs are averaging just 7.1 Fantasy points per week vs. Kansas City, which is the sixth-lowest average. The Broncos DST had just 9 points in Week 11. The Broncos DST is at best a No. 2 Fantasy option Week 13.


Broncos crumble big lead in second half


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) The Broncos pitched a shutout in the first half, but crumbled after halftime Sunday night against the Patriots in Week 12.

Denver was unable to cling to a 24-point halftime lead, as they surrendered a touchdown in each of New England's first four possessions in the second half. The Broncos sacked Tom Brady three times but allowed 440 yards of total offense in a 34-31 overtime defeat.

The Broncos will travel to Kansas City for a Week 13 showdown against the Chiefs.

Broncos could have hands full vs. Patriots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The Broncos may have their hands full against Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 12.

Denver allowed 344 yards of total offense in Week 11 against the Chiefs, including 230 to Alex Smith. The Broncos have allowed 279.1 passing yards per game, which is the fifth most allowed in the league. Brady has averaged 255 yards per game, with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season. Opposing DST units have scored only 8.30 Fantasy points against the Patriots this season.

This matchup between Brady and Peyton Manning may result in a shootout, so it may be safe to keep the Broncos DST out of your starting lineup for Week 12.

Broncos DST pesters Philip Rivers, Chargers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) The Broncos DST had an average game against the Chargers Week 10.

The Broncos allowed 20 points, but were able to disrupt a usually strong San Diego passing game. Denver got to quarterback Philip Rivers, sacking him four times and picking up five quarterback hits. They also did a good job limiting Danny Woodhead in the receiving game. Woodhead managed to score, but was held to just 17 yards on four receptions. 

The Broncos will take on the Chiefs Week 11.


Broncos DST an iffy play against San Diego


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) The Broncos DST is a questionable start Week 10 against the Chargers.

Opposing defenses have been about average against San Diego, scoring 8.75 Fantasy points per game when playing the Chargers. The Chargers have been exactly league-average, scoring 24 points per game this year. 

The issue is more on the Bronos. Denver has allowed 27.2 points per game this season, good for 25th in the league. They've been vulnerable in both the run and pass game, giving up 15 passing touchdowns to eight rushing touchdowns in nine games. The return of Von Miller hasn't helped yet. The team allowed 39 points against the Colts and 21 points versus Washington. Denver remains a spotty defensive play.


Broncos give Robert Griffin III a hard time Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) The Broncos gave Robert Griffin III a tough time as they forced two interceptions -- including one for a touchdown -- during Sunday's win over the Redskins in Week 8.

Griffin was picked off by defensive back Rahim Moore and Chris Harris and linebacker Shaun Phillips. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also picked off Robert Griffin III and ran it back 75 yards to the house late in the fourth quarter. Denver forced a fumble and sack Griffin three times in a 45-21 victory.

The Broncos will get a bye week before a Week 10 showdown against Philip Rivers and the Chargers in Week 10. San Diego averaged 294.1 passing yards per game, which ranked sixth in the league entering Sunday.

Broncos DST doesn't disrupt Colts


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2013) The Broncos DST got linebacker Von Miller back, but it wasn't enough to disrupt the efficient Colts in Week 7. Denver got two sacks and a fumble recovery in the 39-33 defeat.

Linebacker Shaun Phillips and defensive tackle Terrance Knighton each sacked Andrew Luck. Safety Duke Ihenacho ripped the ball loose from running back Trent Richardson and pounced on the ball. Miller had two tackles, one for loss, and two quarterback hits.

Trindon Holliday returned four kickoffs for 123 yards, a 38-yard average, but lost a fumble on a punt return.

The Broncos DST will try to bounce back in Week 8 against Washington.


Broncos DST to get instant boost from Von Miller?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) The Broncos DST ranks 16th entering a difficult Week 7 matchup, as the Colts give up the third-fewest Fantasy points (6.2 per game) to opposing DSTs. But Denver's defense should get a boost from the return of linebacker Von Miller.

The question is whether Miller will make an immediate impact. Miller, who served a six-game suspension, has 30 sacks in 31 career games.

“Obviously, he’s a terrific player," coach John Fox said. "We haven’t watched him practice in six weeks so we will get a chance to see that on Wednesday. [Strength and conditioning coach] Luke Richesson and his staff have done a terrific job as far as the conditioning and things he can do outside of practicing football. So he looks in terrific shape. I think our strength staff has done a super job. He’s been in meetings so he’s been staying up on that and we welcome him back.”

Fox called Miller "a dynamic rusher" who "creates a tough one-on-one matchup for most offenses." It's unclear how much Miller will play Sunday night.

Keep the Broncos DST on your bench for now.
