45. The Broncos lost to the Seahawks yet again and Peyton Manning’s numbers have regressed a bit from last season. But this is a much better team than last year’s Super Bowl losers. The defense has proven to be pretty stout, and they are still going to score a ton of points. They took the Seahawks to overtime and might have won save for the crappy NFL overtime rules which didn’t give Peyton a chance in the extra period.. (2-1). Previous: 2nd. Denver Broncos. 2. team
