NFL roster cuts: AFC | NFC

Wrap-up: Packers 49, Broncos 23

October, 2, 2011
A look at the Broncos' 49-23 blowout loss in Wisconsin:

What does it mean: The Broncos are not close to being able to compete on the road against a champion. This game was predictable. Denver’s defense has improved, but great offenses will shred it. Denver doesn’t have the firepower on offense to keep up.

Tomorrow’s talker: If John Fox won’t play reserve quarterback Tim Tebow in a blowout when will he play him? The Broncos are now 4-13 in Orton’s 17 starts. He is not helping this team win. Expect Fox to be peppered about Tebow’s status. This season is going nowhere fast.

Marvelous Miller: Von Miller is the goods. The No. 2 overall pick in the draft had two sacks Sunday and he now has four in four games. He is a threat to set the rookie sack record. Jevon Kearse owns the record with 14.5 sacks in 1998.

What’s next: The Broncos host San Diego next week before their bye. If the Broncos lose that game, the calls for Tebow to play after the bye will be off the charts.
