Derek Wolfe’s neck injury will end his season

The Broncos will be playing out the string without defensive end Derek Wolfe.

Bengals move into top 10 (in 2018 NFL Draft order)

The Bengals lost last night, but moved up a few spots in the draft order, which is all the consolation you get this time of year when you’re not in the playoff mix. Of course, the Browns (0-12) would still pick first in the 2018 NFL Draft if the season ended today. Also, a lot [more]

Adam Gase said his onside kick wasn’t about John Elway

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said his decision to go for an onside kick while up 33-9 on the Broncos was about sending a message to his own team, not to Broncos executive John Elway. Presumably, he said it with a straight face. While Broncos cornerback Chris Harris acknowledged the “bad blood,” Gase denied that Monday. [more]

Vance Joseph: No one has given up

The Broncos losing streak is up to eight games after the Dolphins rolled over them 35-9 in Miami on Sunday and that leaves little to talk about in Denver outside of coach Vance Joseph’s future and whether the Broncos have enough fight left in them to win another game. Joseph wasn’t interested in talking about [more]

AFC playoff picture: Steelers stay on top

It took a rally from 13 points down in the fourth quarter on an injury-filled night in Cincinnati, but the Steelers wound up with another win that keeps them in the No. 1 spot in the AFC playoff picture for another week. The picture at the top will get more definitive when the Patriots and [more]

Broncos bench Isaiah McKenzie, turn to Jordan Taylor as their punt returner

The Broncos are benching punt returner Isaiah McKenzie after another costly error. Jordan Taylor, who replaced McKenzie once this season, regains the job for the final four games. “I’m not giving up on Isaiah,” Broncos coach Vance Joseph said, via Nicki Jhabvala‏ of The Denver Post. “He was drafted to be our punt returner. I’m [more]

Broncos sticking with Trevor Siemian this week

In a move that says a lot more about Brock Osweiler than it does Trevor Siemian, the Broncos are sticking with Trevor Siemian this week. That’s the word from Mike Klis of KUSA, who reports that Siemian will start again this week against the Jets after yesterday’s dreadful showing against the Dolphins. Siemian threw three [more]

Chris Harris Jr. attributes late onside kick to “bad blood”

An otherwise forgettable game between the Dolphins and Broncos received a little extra bump from an onside kick executed by Miami despite the fact that the home team held a 33-9 lead at the time. “He’s trying to embarrass us,” Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said after the game, attributing the move to “some bad [more]

Dolphins stink less than Broncos, break five-game losing streak

The Dolphins and Broncos could both use a quarterback, because there are parts of each team that isn’t so bad. If only there was a guy who was available this offseason. But the Dolphins elected to go with Jay Cutler when Ryan Tannehill was lost for the season to a knee injury, and the Broncos [more]

Dolphins pulling away after pick-six

Trevor Siemian had a chance to make a job his own again, with Paxton Lynch hurt. He’s not. The Broncos quarterback just threw a pick-six, his second interception of the day, and the Dolphins are up 16-3 late in the second quarter. It’s also the second defensive score of the day, after an early safety. [more]

Dolphins off to commanding 2-0 lead on Broncos

The way this one’s going, any score might be enough. But the Dolphins put the first points on the board in the least conventional manner. They’re up 2-0 on the Broncos on a safety, after the ball was snapped over the head of quarterback Trevor Siemian, who batted it out the back of the end [more]

Dolphins add Reshad Jones to injury report

As the Dolphins try to end a five-game losing streak against a team that has lost seven in a row, the home team has a new addition to the injury report. Safety Reshad Jones has been added to team’s official disclosure of witnesses with a back injury. He’s questionable for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. [more]

Domata Peko’s 123-game starts streak ending Sunday

Broncos nose tackle Domata Peko probably won’t know what to do or how to act Sunday when he watches his teammates on TV from his home in Denver. Peko will miss his first regular-season game since 2009. Peko has started 123 consecutive games, the longest streak among NFL defensive linemen and the third-longest among all [more]
