What if the Denver Broncos never collapsed against the Baltimore Ravens? They should have probably be th Super Bowl champions. This is just speculation of what should have occurred but let's forget the past and start the new season with a bright perspective.
With the best defense and probably the quarterback that the Broncos had in 2012, duplication will not be easy at all. Duplication in a sense that the Broncos will be on top of the AFC once more. However, the goal of the Broncos is to be in the Super Bowl and that winning the AFC title is not the peak of the dream at all but only part.
Denver Broncos will host the Baltimore Ravens in the Thursday Night Game on September 5, 2013. This is a rematch of their divisional playoff game that became the stepping stone of the Ravens to be in the AFC Championship. Broncos have something in their minds and that is to overpower the Baltimore Ravens. This is a match in which the two teams press on to be better as the season progresses.
Week Two, the Peyton Manning faces his brother Eli Manning at the Metlife Stadium. It will be interesting to see the brothers once more executing and doing the damage against the defenses of their respective ballclubs. This will draw plenty of fans who want to see the Manning brothers at their best.
After two tough games, the Denver Broncos will meet the Oakland Raiders at home. There's not much expected for the Raiders except for an improvement. Broncos will be tested as the defense will begin to improve.
Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys will be a threat for the Broncos as well as Week 7 at the Indianapolis Colts. Week 8 also will extremely difficult as they face the Redskins.
Week 10 will be the most anticipated as they travel to New England. The Manning-Brady rivalry will be the center of conversations. This is a much watch game as the superpowers of the AFC collide.
