The Denver Broncos (7-0) scored a huge 29-10 home victory over the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers (6-1) on last night’s edition of Sunday Night Football.
The victory improved Denver’s regular season record to a perfect 7-0, which marks the first time since 1998 (when they last won the Super Bowl) that the Broncos have started a regular season with seven-straight wins.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning put to rest any talks that he could no longer throw the ‘deep ball’, as he was able to connect with wideout Demaryius Thomas for 8 catches totaling 168 yards.
Although Manning did not throw any TD’s, the 39-year-old did complete 21 of 29 pass attempts for 340 yards.
Denver was able to run all over the Green Bay’s defense last night at Mile High Stadium.
C.J. Anderson carried the ball 14 times for 101 yards and a touchdown, while Ronnie Hillman added 60 yards on 19 carries plus 2 touchdown scores.
The Broncos defense proved to be the league’s best yesterday evening, frustrating Aaron Rodgers for the full 60 minutes while allowing just 10 points.
With the victory, Denver joins Cincinnati, Carolina and New England as the only undefeated teams left in the NFL.
