We were right about Marshawn Lynch

We were right about Marshawn Lynch

Good Morning Broncos Country! It appears Mile High Report was right about Marshawn Lynch. He’s an old running back. So after the Broncos defeated the Oakland Raiders on Sunday and gave Derek Carr the Tony Romo injury, it is time for some good old-fashioned trash talk. This trash talk will be mainly directed at Levi Damien of the Raiders SB Nation site Silver and Black Pride who took a shot at us a few weeks ago on our stance on Marshawn Lynch. He wrote a story titled, “What they got wrong about the Raiders”. I would show you the original tweet, but after some good-natured trolling on...

Are the Broncos ‘selling out’ in pass coverage to help stop the run?

Are the Broncos ‘selling out’ in pass coverage to help stop the run?

The Afternoon Drive discusses whether the pass rush and secondary coverage are suffering some to help cover the run. After Sunday’s heart-stopping win over the Raiders via interception near the goal line, it may seem this Broncos’ defense is back in 2015 form. Just looking at stats for the run defense in each of the first four games is pretty salivating: Broncos have faced four Pro Bowl running backs in each of the team’s first four games - Chargers’ Melvin Gordon, Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott, Bills’ LeSean McCoy, Raiders’ Marshawn Lynch - and have held the all-star group to a...

Poll: Are you worried about Broncos kicker Brandon McManus?

Poll: Are you worried about Broncos kicker Brandon McManus?

After converting 85.3 percent of his field goal attempts last season, Broncos kicker Brandon McManus has converted 70 percent of his attempts through four games this year. McManus is 7-10, with one of his misses being a chip shot 29-yard attempt against the Raiders on Sunday. After the game, McManus said on Twitter that he was embarrassed and promised to start a new field-goal streak. Broncos coach Vance Joseph said during a press conference Monday that he’s not worried about the team’s fourth-year kicker. “I’m not concerned,” Joseph said. “He has to make that kick. That kick...

Raiders QB Derek Carr out 2-6 weeks with back injury

Raiders QB Derek Carr out 2-6 weeks with back injury

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will miss 2-6 weeks after suffering a transverse fracture in his back during a 16-10 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. For at least one week, Oakland will start EJ Manuel at quarterback. Manuel went 11-17 for 106 passing yards with one interception after replacing an injured Carr against Denver. Carr’s injury is a big development in the AFC West as the Raiders are now 2-2 and they’ll be without their Pro Bowl quarterback for the foreseeable future. Unless he suffers any setbacks, Carr should be back in time for Oakland’s next game against the Broncos (Nov....

Raiders QB Carr out 2 to 6 weeks with back injury

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will miss between two and six weeks after breaking a bone in his back during a loss to the Denver Broncos. Coach Jack Del Rio said Monday that a CT scan showed that Carr has a transverse process fracture in his back after being injured in the third quarter of a 16-10 loss Sunday. Del Rio said these injuries typically sideline players for two to six weeks. "It's always a big blow to lose a good player, a key player and your quarterback," Del Rio said. "The good news is he's not gone for the year. We'll get him back. It could be as...

Raiders’ Derek Carr out 2-6 weeks

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will be sidelined 2-6 weeks after suffering a back injury in Sunday’s 16-10 loss to the Broncos in Denver. The team announced Monday that Carr had suffered a transverse process fracture late in the third quarter when he was sacked by Denver’s Shelby Harris. He remained on the ground for several minutes, but was eventually able to walk off the field. After being examined on the sideline, he left the field and didn’t return to the game. EJ Manuel replaced Carr and completed 11 of 17 passes for 106 yards. His...

Devontae Booker returns, Broncos embrace running back committee

Devontae Booker returns, Broncos embrace running back committee

Good news for the Broncos, bad news for fantasy football owners. After recovering from a wrist injury, second-year running back Devontae Booker made his 2017 debut against the Raiders on Sunday and he immediately entered Denver’s backfield rotation. Booker was on the field for eight offensive plays, rushing three times for 14 yards. Jamaal Charles was on the field for 11 offensive plays, rushing five times for 33 yards and catching one pass for 14 yards. C.J. Anderson is still the team’s workhorse — he had 44 snaps on offense against Oakland — but he’s subject to lose carries when...

Aqib Talib says 'young bull' Justin Simmons stepped up for Broncos

Leading by six points late in the fourth quarter, the Broncos were relying on their defense and “No Fly Zone” secondary to clinch a win against the Raiders on Sunday. Second-year safety Justin Simmons stepped up, intercepting an EJ Manuel pass and sealing a 16-10 victory at home. My man’s got hops. Great play, @jsimms1119! Game over. @Broncos win! pic.twitter.com/ooqThdYKtr — Tim Holland (@Tim_G_Holland) October 1, 2017 “One of our young bulls stepped up like a vet in the clutch,” cornerback Aqib Talib said after the game. “High pointed the ball, you cannot do much better...

Pretty good? Try amazing. Broncos tight end A.J. Derby hauled in a 22-yard touchdown catch during a 16-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday and he only needed one hand to do it. We consider it a Catch of the Year candidate. #Broncos lead #Raiders 10-7 at halftime.

Derby Show,'” quarterback Trevor Siemian said after the game. “He had a similar route the play before...

Broncos get big win, but still have issues to fix

Broncos get big win, but still have issues to fix

It was less than pretty, but the Broncos got that bounce back win against the Raiders. It may have been windy during the Broncos game against the Raiders, but there was one huge gust when Justin Simmons high pointed the final pass from EJ Manuel. That gust was the collective exhaling of Broncos Country. A sigh of relief, as Oakland appeared to be headed toward a comeback win. When Simmons came down with the game clinching interception, it was a big moment for him, and for the team. A division win, against a hated rival, bouncing back from a bad loss the week before. It wasn’t pretty, but...

Winners and losers from Broncos' 16-10 win over Raiders

Wow, what a Broncos win. Coming into the season, many analysts expected the Oakland Raiders to be the class of a stacked AFC West, but Denver handed them their second consecutive defeat Sunday, improving to 3-1 in the process. The Broncos were able to bounce back from a tough loss in Buffalo to gain a key divisional win, easily their biggest of the season. Still, the game came down to the final few moments, even with the Raiders having to turn to backup quarterback EJ Manuel after an injury to Derek Carr. Here are our winners and losers for the Broncos from Week 4: Winner: C.J....
