August seems like a long time ago.

Marshall
Remember when Denver receiver Brandon Marshall was disengaged from the team and ended up being suspended? Yes, it was a long time ago.

As we enter the final two weeks of the NFL regular season, Marshall has emerged as one of the most targeted receivers in the NFL in several categories.

Marshall -- who set an NFL record with 21 catches in a Week 14 game at Indianapolis -- is by far the favorite target of Denver quarterback Kyle Orton. After Marshall slowly earned the trust of new Denver coach Josh McDaniels early in the season, he has become the main option in Denver’s offense in virtually every situation.
