Someone with way too much time on their hands has recreated Brandon Stokely’s Immaculate Deflection play that gave the Broncos a win over the Bengals in week 1… in Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES. I’d advise against trying to do this at home.
The Broncos are now 5-0 after a surprising defeat of the New England Patriots on Sunday. Considering all the turmoil in the offseason, I think the Broncos start has come as a shock to almost everybody. The last time the Broncos started a season 5-0, they went on to win the Super Bowl in 1998. I’ve got a weird (but good) feeling about this season. Right from the start it seemed like Denver was favored by the Gods of the gridiron, and they haven’t looked back.
The Denver Broncos might be one of just 4 undefeated teams in the NFL after week 4, but they’re still not getting any credit from the experts. ESPN’s weekly power rankings have the Broncos at #8, behind teams like the Jets, Patriots, and Ravens, all of whom have a loss on their record. At some point people are going to recognize the Broncos are a good team. Our defense is solid, and the offense isn’t the mess people thought it would be without Jay Cutler. In fact, the offense is only getting better.
I’d prefer the Broncos stay under the radar. Our opponents can keep on underestimating us while we take this show right to the Super Bowl.
