Peyton Manning and the Broncos need to bounce back after a horrible display last week when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, this Sunday.
The Broncos had troubles getting rid of the Kansas City Chiefs last week and suffered more than people expected.
Knowshon Moreno had a good game on his first attempt to replace Willis McGahee as the running back of the team. “I’ve got to tip my hat to Knowshon Moreno,” said Peyton Manning. “He stepped up and did a heck of a job. Really an impressive effort by him”.
“I thought he had a very good performance,” coach John Fox said. “It’s the way he’s going about his business up to this point. Everybody had great confidence in him and he came through for us”.
“I never felt discouraged,” Moreno said. “I knew what my abilities were. At the same time, I was just waiting for my opportunities to come, and that’s what I think I did.”
Tampa also needs a win after a loss at home against Atlanta. “We’re going to practice, meet, and prepare and then we’re going to go out to Denver and the play the best game we’ve played all year,” coach Greg Schiano said. “Where that stacks up against Denver and Peyton Manning, I only control half of that. We’re going to do our best to make sure we do our best”.
Tampa Bay is 4-0-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing Denver, but the Broncos are -7 points favorites for Sunday.
