Spiraling Broncos head to Arizona on Thursday night
Things are spiraling in Denver. At least the Broncos won't have to worry about the cold and the snow when they journey to Arizona for a Thursday night game.
The Broncos have dropped four straight after opening with two wins. Their defense is dead last against the run and 27th overall.
With the Cardinals going with rookie quarterback Josh Rosen, the temptation will be to keep the ball on the ground as much as possible in this prime-time, uh, thriller.
Broncos’ defense wilts vs. Jets: ‘This is not who we are’
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Von Miller simply couldn't believe this was the Denver Broncos' defense.
Neither could Chris Harris Jr., Shane Ray or anyone else on that side of the ball.
A 34-16 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday in which they allowed 512 yards — including a whopping 323 on the ground — had the Broncos wondering what went wrong.
"We're usually a pretty stout defense," Miller said. "Today, we weren't. We got gashed over the top two or three times today. Yeah, it was a rough one."
The Bush boys basketball team finished undefeated in District 20-6A play last year in its return to the largest UIL classification. The Broncos show no signs of stopping their league winning streak, improving to 21-4 and 7-0 with a 68-58 victory against Hightower.
The Broncos finished a perfect first round of the district schedule, handing the Hurricanes their only loss. Hightower's record remained impressive at 22-6, 6-1.
Coach: Kelvin Sampson (556-310 overall, 56-40 in three seasons at Houston).
Last year: 21-11, 12-6; third in American Athletic Conference; lost to Akron in NIT first round.
Broncos move on without founding member of No Fly Zone
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Aqib Talib laughed at the audacity of the question.
Of course, this Denver Broncos secondary is still the "No Fly Zone" after the release of three-time Pro Bowl strong safety T.J. Ward, who signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"Yeah, ain't nobody flying," Talib said. "They still can't fly. The name doesn't change."
Douglas hit on Harris was legal but dirty
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Harry Douglas is correct in his argument that his low hit on Chris Harris Jr. is permissible. He's mistaken in his contention it was clean.
Tennessee's journeyman wide receiver — known now in Denver as the Titans' goon — was blocking toward his opponent's goal line, not away from the ball. And the play was still live, albeit nowhere near where Harris was standing.
