Denver Broncos: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Last week: 9 (+0)

Record 2-2

See, Peyton Manning wasn’t done. He just needed to face the Raiders. After 3 less than stellar performances in his first 3 games against tough defenses (Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Houston), Manning exploded for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns on 30 of 38 passing against the Raiders’ lowly defense. He’s not the player he once was, but he’s still pretty good. Next up for the Broncos is another tough test as they head to New England, but New England’s defense isn’t great so Manning should be able to post good numbers in a shoot out.
