2013 Denver Broncos Will Win the AFC

Peyton Manning

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos made one of the biggest free-agent pickups in NFL history last March when they picked up Peyton Manning, arguably one of the greatest QBs in NFL History, to lead the team into Sports Authority Field on Sundays. Now heading into his second year wearing the bright Orange Uniform, the expectations have never been higher in the Mile High City. John Elway was able to again add a huge asset in the offseason when he was able to persuade one of the NFL’s premier wide receivers in Wes Welker to join the team in their quest for their third Super Bowl Trophy. Now with, in my opinion, two Future Hall of Fame players added to an already talented and young team, the Broncos third championship is not that far away.

If it had not of been for an over played pass by second-year Safety Rahim Moore the Broncos would of won last years divisional game against the Baltimore Ravens and had a chance to replay Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Foxboro for the AFC Crown. But as close as Denver was last year to NFL Glory, they are even more dangerous and destined for a trip to Metlife Stadium for the Super Bowl this year if you can believe it.

Think about this, the Broncos only lost one major contributor from last year’s 13-3 team in Elvis Dumervil. Not only that, they added another offensive weapon in Welker, strengthened the offensive line with the signing of Louis Vasquez and added much needed depth on the defensive side of the ball in signing Terrance Knighton, Shaun Phillips, Dominique Rogers-Cromartie and recently adding Quentin Jammer. Take the moves they made in Free Agency and add in a high-graded draft from the draft experts and you have got a better team any way you put it.

Of course, all of this depends on injuries if and when they happen. But looking at the roster and the way the schedule lays out for the Broncos, they could very well win 13-14 games again this season. With an offense that ranked four last year and defense that was ranked second in the league, its hard to imagine a team doing any better than that, but the 2013 Denver Broncos team will be just that. So as NFL fans begin to dust off their favorite jersey and re start up their NFL Sunday Package, if the Broncos are on your favorite teams schedule to play whether it be at home or in Denver, be prepared to flip the channel before the game ends.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
