Since the Denver Broncos put the finishing touches on a decisive 24–10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, there’s been a distinct afterglow in the city.
At gas stations, cashiers and customers swap smiles and quips about the demolition of Cam Newton, the NFL’s MVP who was reduced...

On Friday, we laid out the Broncos’ priorities for Super Bowl 50, and damned if they didn’t nail just about all of them. Good thing, because the golden anniversary game had more than a little rust on it. The Broncos and Panthers combined to go a horrendous 4-for-29 on third down, committed six...

When the clock hits zero in Santa Clara—after the legendary Peyton Manning barks his last “Omaha” and tosses his last pass; when the Super Bowl post-game interviews end and The Sheriff leaves the stadium in his suit and tie, likely for the last time as a player—win or lose, let’s capture all we can...

After spending the past five months wondering whether the Broncos were contenders or pretenders, we have our answer. Despite being dominant in only one aspect of the game and middling everywhere else, this year that was just good enough to get the team to Super Bowl 50. As the NFL hype machine...
