Broncos Beat Packers in Battle of Unbeatens

DENVER (WFIE) -

Peyton Manning and the Broncos proved their nay-sayers wrong.  In a battle of unbeaten 6-0 teams, Denver thoroughly beat the Packers, 29-10, Sunday night, to improve to 7-0 on the season.  After narrowly pulling out some wins over sub-par opponents, like the Browns, Ravens, and Chiefs, the Broncos had control from start to finish, against Green Bay.  They took a 17-0 lead into the 2nd quarter, before the Packers cut the lead to 7.  From there though, the Denver defense held Aaron Rodgers and 'The Pack' scoreless, en route to their 19-point win.  Rodgers was confounded all night by the Bronco 'D', finishing with a meager 77 yards passing, while in total, Green Bay could only muster 140 yards of total offense.  Meanwhile, Manning threw for 340 yards, with only one interception, and the Broncos' running game finally got going, to the tune of 160 yards rushing, between C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, who accounted for all three touchdowns on the ground, between them.  Denver now takes their 7-0 record into Indianapolis next Sunday afternoon, as Peyton Manning once again gets to face his former team.  Meanwhile, the Packers could play another undefeated team next week, as they travel to Carolina.  The Panthers have some business to take care of first, though, as they put their perfect record on the line against the Colts, on Monday Night Football.
