Injury report: Quarterback Case Keenum sits out today’s practice

Injury report: Quarterback Case Keenum sits out today’s practice

Here is your Wednesday injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens. The Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens released their first injury reports of the week earlier today. The Broncos have been dealing with optimal health to begin the season, but the injury big gets everyone eventually. The notable name sitting out practice today for the Broncos was starting quarterback, Case Keenum. #Broncos @casekeenum explained what is going on with knee. He's not worried.

Broncos need to unleash the Orange Rush

Broncos need to unleash the Orange Rush

Here are our other keys to Sunday’s game to ensure the Broncos leave Baltimore 3-0. Two games, two come-from-behind wins for Case Keenum and the Denver Broncos. Is Broncos Country set for a reboot of 2015, where it feels as if you just finished a marathon when the games are over? As Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann said after Denver’s 20-19 win over the Oakland Raiders last Sunday, “Need to get my John-Elway-80s-Broncos defibrillator out of the closet.” Now comes the first road test of the 2018 season for Keenum and the Broncos (2-0). That comes on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens...

GIF Horse - Beating Down Baltimore

GIF Horse - Beating Down Baltimore

Here we take a look at the key match-ups for the Denver Broncos in their road contest against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. Welcome to Baltimore week, the first opponent on the Broncos schedule where I worry I’ll alienate fans by not assuring you Denver will find a way to come away with a victory. Hold onto your horses, Broncos Country. I’m not saying that Harbaugh’s gang will give Joseph his first L of the 2018 season. Rather, I’m saying that this is the first game against an opponent that looks unlikely to finish the year with a top-10 pick in the NFL draft come April. It’s...

Horse Tracks: Broncos rookies are making an immediate impact

Horse Tracks: Broncos rookies are making an immediate impact

The Denver Broncos are reaping early benefits from their 2018 draft class, with a handful of players contributing in a big way to start their NFL careers. Good morning, Broncos Country. A common criticism of John Elway in his tenure as General Manager of the Denver Broncos has been his drafting ability. That has been especially true for their early round picks, which have usually been misses, providing tenuous production at best. In order to turn things around for the long haul, it was mission critical for the franchise to have a successful draft this past April. As silly as it may seem,...

Simon Fletcher sees great potential in Bradley Chubb

Simon Fletcher sees great potential in Bradley Chubb

The Broncos career sack leader joins the Orange and Blue 760 guys to talk Broncos defense, and how Bradley Chubb has looked so far. Simon Fletcher knows a thing or two about rushing the passer, and what it takes to be a great pass rusher. The Broncos all-time sack leader, who amassed 97.5 sacks in his NFL career, joined the Orange and Blue 760 1st and 10 at 10 crew this morning to talk Broncos defense. I think Bradley Chubb going to be the guy we’re talking about when Von Miller is near the end of his career in a few years. Fletcher was asked his thoughts on the Broncos first round pick...

Von Miller on the NFL protecting quarterbacks: ‘Just for the ball’

Von Miller on the NFL protecting quarterbacks: ‘Just for the ball’

Von Miller knows a thing or two about stealing the ball from opposing quarterbacks - and now running backs. Von Miller made an appearance on SB Nation Radio on Monday to talk about the Denver Broncos start to the 2018 season. He started off showing some love to the young players on the roster who are stepping up and joining the veteran leaders on the team to get these early wins, playing with grit and fire in two comeback wins at home. When asked about the NFL’s new rules protecting quarterbacks, referencing the hit by Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers that ultimately kept the...

Broncos are five-point underdogs to Ravens in Week 3

Broncos are five-point underdogs to Ravens in Week 3

After opening 3.5-point underdogs, the line has since grown to 5 for the Denver Broncos as they travel to face the Baltimore Ravens. The Denver Broncos (2-0) will face their first road test of the season as they travel to Maryland to face the Baltimore Ravens (1-1) in Week 3 action. The Broncos opened 3.5-point underdogs to the Ravens, but that line has since grown to a full 5-point spread. There is not a whole lot of trust in this Broncos squad that has squeaked by two teams at home that have yet to win a game in 2018, while the Ravens put down a 47-3 beatdown of the Buffalo Bills in Week...

Broncos vs. Raiders play of the week: Tim Patrick for the win!

Broncos vs. Raiders play of the week: Tim Patrick for the win!

There was no bigger play during the Denver Broncos dramatic 20-19 comeback win over the Oakland Raiders than Tim Patrick’s catch and run late in the fourth quarter. After one of the worst dropped passes we’ve ever seen from Demaryius Thomas, it felt like Case Keenum and the Denver Broncos were going to come up just short on that last minute drive against the Oakland Raiders. Then undrafted rookie Tim Patrick showed up. He made former first-round pick Gareon Conley look silly in coverage, catching a short pass from Keenum and turning it up field for a monster game-clinching 26-yard...

Broncos vs Raiders: The No Bull Review

Broncos vs Raiders: The No Bull Review

The Denver Broncos made a 4th quarter game-winning drive to defeat the Oakland Raiders. Here are my thoughts, opinions, and analysis on the Denver Broncos’ most recent game. I’m going to level with you, Broncos Country. This isn’t going to be a pretty review. If I’m going to give a real, honest, No Bull game analysis of our team, from time to time we are going to have to put on our galoshes and slickers and go trounce about in the mud. Don’t get me wrong: A win is a win. At the end of the day, I’m elated that the team pulled out this game against a division rival. I think it...

Broncos 3rd and long: an ugly win is still a win

Broncos 3rd and long: an ugly win is still a win

The Denver Broncos were perfect on third and long against the Oakland Raiders. So Joe Woods had our defensive backs play way off of the Raider receivers on Sunday. Derek Carr took advantage of that and carved up the Frequent Flyer Zone to the tune of an NFL record 29 completions on 32 attempts (90.6%). The Raiders stuck to their game plan and, at least in the first half, they were able to dictate to our defense. They wanted to run the ball on first down to stay “on schedule”. They were able to do that, for the most part, gaining 49 yards on 15 first down carries (3.3 ypc). While that...

NFL Power Rankings: The Broncos remain undefeated!

NFL Power Rankings: The Broncos remain undefeated!

Who’s the best team in the NFL? It might not be as cut and dry as it appears! Way to gut out a win Denver. I’d like to touch on a few things about that game we saw on Sunday. First: Whatever off-man coverage Joe Woods is deploying needs to stop and stop pronto. If you think Carr exposed us, just wait until Flacco. And if you think Flacco exposes us, holy hell just wait for the phenom known as Patrick Mahomes! You DO NOT want QBs to have free reign to just throw on us all day and hope that they mess up. That kind of philosophy makes playing a prevent defense look attractive. And...

These next two games will say a ton about this year’s Broncos with a road trip to face the Baltimore Ravens and a prime time home game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Vance Joseph: ‘We gave Raiders’ offense too much respect’

Vance Joseph: ‘We gave Raiders’ offense too much respect’

It was earned respect, but Joseph admitted on Orange and Blue Radio that the Broncos’ backend defense played too soft. Vance Joseph knows what went wrong with the defense on Sunday. Call it the Aretha Franklin Effect. Too. Much. R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the Raiders’ offense. “We gave those guys a lot of respect. ...It was earned respect, but we can’t play that way because we’re not built to play that way,” coach Vance Joseph told Dave Logan on Orange and Blue Radio’s First & 10 @ 10 podcast. “We have a great pass rush. The two times we made [Derek Carr] hold the ball, we actually...
