The honeymoon period is over, the Broncos have fallen to 1-2 and are currently riding a two game losing streak. Additionally, Peyton Manning’s last two performances have left Denver Bronco fans wondering when he will be able to start delivering on a consistent basis. Manning has shown flashes of the greatness he had during his years with the Colts, but with the Broncos, he has also been showing flashes of a side we have never seen before. Hopefully his poor play in the past two weeks was more mental than physical. This week, Manning and the Broncos have a chance to redeem themselves against the struggling Raiders. Manning should have no problem picking apart the Raiders 26th ranked pass defense, however, the Broncos must step it up on defense and be prepared to stop the Raiders explosive runner, Darren McFadden. Both teams are 1-2 and will be fighting to not fall behind early in the season, this should be a great game!
