Denver Broncos won the AFC Conference Championship in 2013 and played in Super Bowl XLVIII against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks had a convincing win against Denver to win their franchise's first Super Bowl. Denver was led all year by quarterback Peyton Manning and their high octane offense. In an era now where passing the football is dominating the NFL game, and Denver had one of the best pass offenses, Seattle's defense took us back into yesteryear when defenses and a solid running game won Super Bowls.
Denver will have most of its core offensive starters back in 2014. Only wide receiver Eric Decker (New York Jets) and running back Knowshon Moreno (Miami Dolphins) want be back. As long as Peyton Manning is in a Broncos uniform they have a chance of winning many football games. Having left tackle Ryan Clady back is a huge boost. He missed most of the 2013 season and the playoffs.The defense gets an infusion of young and veteran talent to help a defense which struggled against the pass. Von Miller returns at linebacker after an injury filled 2013. His pass rushing was definitely missed by the team especially in the secondary. Long time Bronco, corner back Champ Bailey (New Orleans Saints) also signed elsewhere. The secondary will have a new look in 2014 and a key All-Pro pass rusher will wear the Broncos orange. Look below at the new faces who should make an impact for Denver.
