After Rice, most would say Terrell Owens and Moss are No. 2 and No. 3, or No. 3 and No. 2. Regardless, there’s no doubt that Owens’ achievements merit a spot in Canton. So…

    It's probably not fair to say the Denver Broncos' championship window was going to close, win or lose, after Super Bowl 50. But let's say that it was probably a good idea to beat the Carolina Panthers, just in case.  This will be a tricky offseason for Broncos general manager John Elway. He was very aggressive in trying to win a title before Peyton Manning retired. Mission accomplished. But making another run next season will be a challenge. The Broncos have a ton of questions to answer this offseason. Las Vegas oddsmakers don't have a ton of faith in the Broncos repeating. There were 11 te…

    The Denver Broncos' 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Carolina Panthers drew some 111.9 million viewers to make it the third most watched show in US television history, Nielsen said Monday. The viewership tracker said preliminary data showed the 50th edition of the NFL's championship extravaganza was viewed in an average of 54.3 million homes. The huge amount of viewers placed it just behind the 114.4 million who watched Tom Brady and the New England Patriots stun the Seattle Seahawks in last year's Super Bowl and the 112.2 million audience that tuned in during Seattle's blowout win over Den…
