Vance Joseph

ENGLEWOOD | Broncos coach Vance Joseph is going with experience this time, hiring Tom McMahon to replace Brock Olivo as his special teams coordinator. Joseph gave Olivo his first shot at coaching special teams last season, but Dave Toub’s longtime assistant in Kansas City oversaw one of the worst special teams in the league and was among six assistants Joseph fired last week.

ENGLEWOOD | Frustration swept through Week 13 of the NFL schedule. Rob Gronkowski’s cheap shot on Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White. Tom Brady’s sideline spat with his play caller Josh McDaniels. Marcus Peters’ heave of an official’s yellow flag into the stands as the Chiefs fell into a three-way tie in the middling AFC West.

ENGLEWOOD | Domata Peko’s 123-game starting streak, the longest by a defensive lineman in the NFL, will come to an end this weekend. Coach Vance Joseph ruled out the Denver Broncos’ tenacious nose tackle Friday because of a sprained ligament in his left knee. Peko was injured in the Broncos’ 21-14 loss at Oakland last week.
