Peyton Ready to Lead Denver Broncos Back to Playoffs

Posted by Stan Simmons on 7/25/2013 7:49:26 PM

The Denver Broncos showed all sports books they are trying to win now when they signed quarterback Peyton Manning prior to the 2012 season. The year was a success as they lost to the eventual Super Bowl champions the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Divisional Round after finishing with a 13-3 regular season record. This year however the expectations are higher as the Broncos made a key offensive signing and had a solid all around draft.

Offense

The offense will go as far as Manning takes them. They signed Wes Welker in the offseason to be the teams main slot wide receiver and with the trio of Welker, Eric Decker, and Demaryius Thomas the Broncos should have a deadly passing attack. In the draft they addressed the running back position early by taking Wisconsin back Montee Ball to compete with Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno for the starting spot, a competition that sports gamblers should watch closely during the preseason. The bottom line is that the Broncos averaged 30 points per game last season, second in the NFL, and should have an even better offensive unit this season.

Defense

In order to improve the secondary the Broncos decided to acquire cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles to team up with veteran Champ Bailey and longtime San Diego Charger Quentin Jammer. The drafting of defensive tackle Sylvester Williams will help the team protect against the run more even though they already ranked as the third best defender against the run in 2012. The defense as a whole gave up just 18 points per game last season and with the additions of two key cornerbacks they very well could be the best defense in the league once linebacker Von Miller returns from his four game suspension due to a failed drug test.

Special Teams

Many fans remember Trindon Holliday’s late game kick return for a touchdown against the Ravens in the playoffs and know that the 5 foot 5 inch wide receiver is one of the up and coming return men in all of football. Holliday is back with the Broncos this year and will once again be the teams main punt and kick returner which adds another dimension to this already threatening Broncos team. Matt Prater will be entering his sixth season as the main field goal kicker for the Broncos and with his proven track record the Broncos should have a solid special teams unit once again this season.

2013 Preview

The Denver Broncos undoubtedly got better as a football team this offseason. They improved already strong units on their team and with Manning now having spent a full year with the team the offense should be even stronger this year. Although they play in the same conference as the defending champs, the Broncos will be one of the best sports betting picks to win the Super Bowl in 2013 and anything less will likely be seen as a failure for this Broncos team.

2013 Prediction: 13-3, 1st AFC West
