Denver’s 42-point explosion against the Cowboys in Week 2 is a performance that now feels ancient and from another time entirely.
The Broncos sport the NFL’s worst scoring offense since Week 3, with a ground game that has fallen apart and a quarterback in Trevor Siemian whose passer rating is third-worst in the league above just DeShone Kizer and Joe Flacco.

But imagine putting on the masks of all 32 NFL general managers at once. Knowing each team’s strengths, weaknesses and true place in the standings, being able to move anybody anywhere with even the slightest sense of reason … What would you do?
72.0 percent. Just two weeks ago, Minnesota’s chances of winning the division were down to 21 percent. With Aaron Rodgers out, the Vikings are the favorite to win the NFC North now.

And if you think it’s all been accomplished against FCS competition, you’d mostly be right. But consider what he did in the 2016 season opener at TCU: 5 catches for 96 yards and a Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China touchdown.
