Last year the Broncos were the best team in the AFC, but not the best team in the NFL. This year we think the Broncos will be the best team in the AFC, but not the best team in the NFL.
In our preseason power rankings, the Broncos are No. 3. That’s ahead of the other 15 teams in the AFC, but still behind the two NFC teams we’ll reveal tomorrow (you can probably guess which two teams those are).
As long as Peyton Manning is healthy, the Broncos have a lot going for them on offense, and the defense could be better this year with the additions of DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward. But will the defense be enough better for the Broncos to not only return to the Super Bowl, but win it?
