Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017

Posted Sep 13, 2017

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

Siemian applying the lessons he learned from Peyton Manning (Robert Klemko, MMQB)
“I won’t say exactly what he said, but Peyton threw a zinger at Trevor, and it was incredible to hear how Trevor spit one back in Peyton’s face. And I’m going, I love this. Mr. Manning, you’ve got a little bit of a challenge with this rookie. Trevor doesn’t get intimidated easily.”

Broncos’ first victory shows potential, possible revival of one key positional group (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
Green’s catch was the longest by a Broncos tight end since November 2013, when Julius Thomas caught a 74-yard touchdown from Peyton Manning, and it was a sign that maybe, just maybe, the positional group that has lagged for the past two years is experiencing a revival under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

Against the Cowboys, is Dak Prescott or Ezekiel Elliott the bigger threat for Broncos? (Nicki Jhabvala and Mark Kiszla)
The Broncos’ run defense showed improvement Monday and if they can contain Prescott, I think they have a chance.

Harris turned optimism into a game-saving play (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
"This is what you want, I'm happy to be 1-0, happy to help the team win," said Harris -- an optimist who has had his optimism tested plenty in his football career. "And happy to finally be part of a great defense, so whatever I can do is what I want to do."
