DENVER | Filter out the string of salty words, and defensive end Derek Wolfe’s take on what happened was pretty clear: It simply wasn’t the Denver Broncos’ night. Tread carefully, though, on accusing Wolfe and the mistake-prone Broncos of overlooking the struggling New York Giants, who snapped a five-game skid with a shocking 23-10 win over heavily favored Denver on Sunday.


ENGLEWOOD | Paxton Lynch has resumed throwing after almost seven weeks and said that he aims to return to action this season. “Yeah, yeah, for sure,” Lynch said, dismissing any notion of this being a “redshirt” year for him. The former first-round draft pick sprained his right shoulder Aug. 26 in an exhibition game against the Green Bay Packers shortly after he was officially beaten out by Trevor Siemian for the starting job.


ENGLEWOOD | Von Miller has what Khalil Mack wants: a Super Bowl ring. And Mack has what Miller would love to add to his mantle: the NFL Defensive Player of the Year trophy. Mack beat out Miller by a single vote last year after the Raiders reached the playoffs for the first time since 2002 and the Broncos saw their five-year playoff run come to an end.
