The Denver Broncos did what the Denver Broncos do in their season opener by beating the Indianapolis Colts, 31-24. Peyton Manning threw for 269 yards and three touchdowns, proving that he’s once again going to have another incredible season and likely be included in MVP races. Julius Thomas was on the receiving end of all three touchdowns, as he topped 100 yards on just seven receptions. The Denver Broncos only area of weakness was its running game, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. Montee Ball has to be more effective in order for the Broncos to have a complete offense. Defensively, the Denver Broncos allowed 408 yards and held the Colts to 4-13 on third down attempts. Brandon Marshall leads Denver with 10 tackles and DeMarcus Ware had 1.5 sacks in his Broncos debut.
While the broncos should win, the Cheifs are getting too many points here.
