will return to dominance Good morning Brian Dawkins Jersey , Broncos Country.It’s hard to believe that three years have passed since the Denver Broncos secured their third Lombardi Trophy — a feat that wouldn’t have been possible without a ferocious and top-flight performance by their defense that stopped Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.In 2015 and 2016, the Broncos’ defense ranked in the top four league-wide in respect to points and yards allowed. They were also one of the best units in terms of sack production and turnovers. Without question, the those two defenses were some of the best in the modern era, with their Super Bowl winning unit deserving recognition of one of the greatest to ever grace the gridiron. It was an incredible privilege to witness them play and an aspect of Broncos history fans shouldn’t take for granted.Alas, the dominance Broncos Country came to expect from their defense just wasn’t there in 2017. Sack production and turnovers were down, the play-calling seemed a bit precarious and their inability to cover running backs and tight ends was a bane of theirs all season long. More than anything, Wade Phillips, perhaps the most important figure in the Broncos’ route to defensive acclaim wasn’t on the sideline. For many players on the defense, last year’s performance was a wake-up call and something they are set to correct in 2018.“That wasn’t us last year as far as the caliber of what we play to,” remarked inside linebacker Todd Davis, who was named a team captain for the forthcoming season. “We were good in some areas, but we’ve got a lot of areas that we have to clean up and we focused a lot on that in the offseason. We’re going to be crisp this year and really focus on being great all around,” he went on to add.But just how good can the Broncos’ defense be? They added talent to numerous positions through the draft and free agency, but lost a handful of quality contributors such as Aqib Talib during the offseason. Nevertheless Peyton Manning Jersey , Davis remains confident and optimistic about this year’s defense. Most importantly, he believes wholeheartedly that the unit will return to dominance once more.“I’m super excited. I feel like we’re going to be a dominant defense in the run game and in the pass game,” stated Davis. “I feel like we have so many great weapons and lot of depth at different positions. We’re really set up to have a great year this year.”With a revamped offense featuring a plethora of new weapons coupled with a reinvigorated defense, the outlook for the Broncos in 2018 looks much better than just a year ago. The prospect of earning another AFC West title is extremely realistic, but first things first — starting off the season with a revenge win against the Seattle Seahawks.As always, thank you for reading and here is today’s offering of Horse Tracks.Horse TracksHow Will Parks and Dymonte Thomas earned their place in Broncos’ secondaryDenver will need more from both in light of safety Su’a Cravens’ injury (knee) absence.A glance at the Denver Broncos’ first-round quarterback picksOver the course of Denver’s history, the franchise has drafted four quarterbacks in the first round -- none of whom lasted more than three seasons in the Mile High City.Power rankings roundup: Where the Broncos sit before Week 1Here’s where national experts rank the Broncos ahead of the team’s season opener.Now with his fourth NFL team, Kevin Hogan looks to continue his development in DenverHogan will serve as the team’s third quarterback after stops in Kansas City, Cleveland and Washington.Kansas City Chiefs give OT Cameron Erving contract extensionThe Chiefs and offensive lineman Cameron Erving have come to terms on a two-year extension, a source told ESPN's Adam Teicher.Derek Carr -- Oakland Raiders players over shock of Khalil Mack tradeRaiders quarterback Derek Carr said Monday the shock of teammate Khalil Mack being trade has worn off "because we're back to work."Steelers players not worried about Le'Veon's absence - NFL.comSteelers GM Kevin Colbert said Monday he's "disappointed" that Le'Veon Bell hasn't rejoined his squad yet.

DENVER (AP) — Von Miller channeled Bill Belichick after the Denver Broncos‘ stirring 24-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.He finished all six of his answers in his poker-faced postgame news conference by saying, it’s “on to Cincinnati.”The surging Broncos (5-6) visit the sliding Bengals (5-6), who have lost five of six John Elway Jersey , next weekend in what looks like quite a respite from the difficult schedule they’ve faced so far.Entering Week 12, the Broncos had played the league’s toughest schedule with their opponents combining for a 66-46-1 record for a lofty .588 winning percentage.After hanging tough against the league’s heavyweights, losing by a combined 12 points to the Chiefs (twice), Rams and Texans, the Broncos have snapped back-to-back six-game winning streaks by the Chargers and Steelers.On Sunday, they handed the Steelers (7-3-1) their first loss since September and just their second in the last 18 regular-season road games when nose tackle Shelby Harris picked off Ben Roethlisberger’s 2-yard pass to Antonio Brown in the end zone with just over a minute remaining .“It was a great team win,” Miller mono-toned. “On to Cincinnati.”The Steelers were the third consecutive opponent to bring a winning streak of at least five games into their matchup with Denver, and although Roethlisberger threw for 462 yards, the Broncos had four takeaways.Will Parks saved a touchdown by punching the ball out of the end zone as tight end Xavier Grimble was about to score on a 24-yard catch-and-run. Chris Harris Jr. intercepted a pass intended for Antonio Brown. Bradley Roby and Darian Stewart, burned on JuJu Smith-Schuster’s 97-yard TD catch, teamed up to get the ball from running back James Connor.And Shelby Harris capped the night with his first career interception 48 hours after missing practice to attend the birth of his daughter.“We had a great win today, great team win,” Miller said, staring straight ahead Ronald Leary Jersey , seemingly emotionless. “Shelby had an incredible day. But it’s on to Cincinnati.”The 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the last team to face the sort of three-game test the Broncos just did, wrapping up an 0-14 season with losses to the Raiders, Steelers and Patriots by an average of 40-10.And the Broncos are the first team since the 2005 Steelers to snap consecutive win streaks of at least six games in back-to-back weekends.The Broncos nearly swept their three red-hot opponents“We should have,” safety Darian Stewart said. “We should have.”Brandon McManus missed a 51-yard field goal as time expired against the Texans, allowing Houston to escape 19-17 before bouncing back last week to beat the Chargers on a field goal as time expired.Chris Harris Jr. said the Broncos are flame-tested and ready to make a push against a schedule that lightens up considerably.Their next four opponents — Cincinnati, San Francisco, Cleveland and Oakland — are a combined 13-30-1 before a finale against the 8-3 Chargers, whom they beat last week.“We like where we are,” Stewart said. “We’ve played the best of the best all year. We’ve got the hardest schedule in the league and these guys keep fighting. We’re built for it. This defense is built to stop anybody in this league.“You saw the game last week with L.A. and K.C., all those points put up,” Stewart said of the 104-point explosion by teams that averaged just 26 points against Denver. “This defense is steady and we’re going to fight.”Miller tied a career high by extending his sack streak to six straight games.“We played great defense,” Miller said. “We played great offense. Great team win.“It’s on to Cincinnati.”
