Week 3 officially begins tonight with Thursday Night Football between the Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans.

The surprisingly good Carolina Panthers (2-0) will be on the road to face another surprisingly not terrible Houston Texans (1-1) to kick off Week 3.

The Panthers have the league’s best defense in both regular metrics and in DVOA. The Denver Broncos defense is good, but even they haven’t topped the play from...

Can the Broncos wreck the Jets?

I spoke with Gang Green Nation’s MacGreggor Wells to find out.

Nothing lasts for long in the NFL, and we’ll get to see the effects of that churn in real time when the Broncos face off against the Jets this weekend. The last time the two faced off was only a year ago around this time, when Brett Rypien made his first start on Thursday Night Football. Since then Adam Gase has given way to Robert Saleh, and Joe Douglas shipped Sam Darnold to...

How do the Broncos match up with the Jets?

Play Like a Jet’s Luke Grant and I dug into the tape to find out.

From afar, the Denver Broncos week three matchup looks like a tale of two quarterbacks.

Zach Wilson’s career has not gotten off to the start the New York Jets hoped for. The rookie has thoroughly struggled the first two games of 2020, completing 55.7% of his passes for 468 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions. Sports Info Solutions charting deems 68.6% of his passes as...

Week 3: Jets at Broncos - Everything we know

Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

The Denver Broncos will try to get to 3-0 as they host the visiting New York Jets in Week 3. Here is everything we know.

The Denver Broncos achieved exactly the kind of start necessary for a team looking to get back into playoff contention after a long drought. Winning on the road in the NFL isn’t easy - even against teams not considered to be any good - and that is exactly what Denver did to open the season 2-0. They absolutely have to keep it...

The Broncos HC is finding his form

C. Morgan Engel-USA TODAY Sports

Vic Fangio may have entered 2021 on the hot seat, but his in game decisions to this point have been excellent.

After two games, the Denver Broncos find themselves sitting at 2-0. It feels great, but isn’t really all that surprising. Everyone knows that the New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars are subpar opponents at the moment. Life should continue to be good for Broncos Country with the New York Jets making an appearance at Mile High...

John Elway interested in Broncos ownership role

John Elway recently stepped down as the Broncos’ general manager, though he is now serving as the franchise’s president of football operations. But the former Super Bowl-winning executive and quarterback is eyeing a higher-profile post with the team.

George Paton had a plan for the Broncos and stuck to it

George Paton immediately put his stamp on the franchise, and it is paying dividends on the field.

After the 2021 draft, there were many (myself included) who were disappointed that the Denver Broncos didn’t draft Justin Fields. Now, two games into the season, the returns coming from the top picks in the draft, along with some really good play from Teddy Bridgewater, have many in Broncos Country forgetting all about Fields.

The Denver Broncos had a lot of limited players at practice on Wednesday. Here is your full practice report for both Denver and the New York Jets.

The Denver Broncos received some encouraging news on Bradley Chubb on Wednesday. His procedure was about as good as it could have gone, which means he’ll only be out 6-8 weeks. The team went ahead and moved him to injured reserve, but we should expect to see Chubb back in action later this season

OL Film Review: What’s going on with Dalton Risner?

Photo by Al Pereira/Getty Images

Left Guard Dalton Risner has struggled so far in 2021. What’s going on with his play? Can it rebound?

Coming into the season, I was fairly bullish on Dalton Risner. He’s never been an elite guard in my mind, but there weren’t many left guards in the league I would have named over him.

However, his 2021 tape has not been impressive so far. It’s bordering on the polar opposite to the point where it harmed the offense’s performance in both games...

Of course it’s early. Hope isn’t a bad thing.

If you aren’t quite ready to admit to yourself that the Broncos have been fun to watch the last two weeks, then listen to Steve Atwater on Broncos Country Tonight because he never fails to bring the hype and change your perspective.

I promise.

Most of Broncos Country recognizes that Teddy Bridgewater didn’t and won’t become Peyton Manning or Tom Brady overnight. And he was never Patrick...

When it comes to starts, it doesn’t get any better for Teddy Bridgewater and the Denver Broncos.

Thanks, Captain Obvious. Still, it’s true. Imagine the alternative if the Broncos dropped one of the first two games, or, gasp, both.

Thankfully that’s not a proposition the Broncos have to fight since they’re 2-0. Now comes the home opener against the...

I can’t remember the last time the Denver Broncos were double-digit favorites in a game, but it sure does feel good to have oddmakers this confident.

Who get more playing time relative to week one and who got less.

Offense

The five starting offensive linemen and our quarterback all played 100 percent of the offensive snaps.

Our tight end group had the almost exact same snap distribution as week one with Noah Fant, Albert Okweugbunam and Eric Saubert getting 77, 54 and 35 percent of the offensive snaps.

The wide receiver group had Courtland Sutton again seeing the most snaps with 77 percent...

Will injuries torpedo the Broncos’ strong start?

Jerry Jeudy, Michael Ojemudia, Ronald Darby, Josey Jewell, and Bradley Chubb all are out with injuries...is the Denver Broncos roster deep enough to keep churning out wins?

Injuries happen in the NFL. That’s a norm and it is why it is so important for your GM to draft well so that there are talented backups able to step in and pick up the slack.

We’re about to find out just how well-stocked the Broncos cupboard is in the next few weeks.
