Will the matchup at Mile High be a bust?

Vikings-Broncos is the only game this week that features two teams with winning records, but ESPN's Football Power Index sees a clear likely winner.


Unstoppable force, immovable object?

The Broncos' run defense hasn't quite been a stone wall, but it's been pretty stingy. Can Adrian Peterson get it rolling in Denver?

Broncos tackle Ryan Harris, who will play for the injured Ty Sambrailo at left tackle Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, on if there is more pressure protecting Peyton Manning's blind side; "Why would there be? He's only like a future Hall of Famer, right?" He added "I think challenges are part of the process ... We're looking forward to the challenge."

With this week's fines -- Sylvester Williams for hit on Matthew Stafford and Von Miller for sack dance -- the Broncos defensive players have now been fined $46,292 over last two games.

Public doesn't love denver anymore

Despite losing some public support, the Broncos (-7) are 3-0 ATS this season. Will this defensive battle with Minnesota be the week that Denver finally doesn't cover? Tuley's bets (Insider)

Jeff Legwold ESPN Staff Writer 

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Ty Sambrailo will not play Sunday against Vikings. Said Ryan Harris will play left tackle, Michael Schofield at right tackle.

For Broncos left tackle Ty Sambrailo was not on the field for practice Friday -- the third consecutive day he has been held out with a left shoulder injury. Broncos will give his official status for Sunday's game following practice, but it would be unlikely for the rookie to play against the Vikings at this point with only a walk- through practice remaining this week. TE/FB James Casey (knee) was on the field, but was not participating in practice.
