Denver Broncos (6-1)
Grade: A-minus

What they’ve done well: After a tumultuous offseason, it’s obvious coach Josh McDaniels had a better understanding of his team than anyone else. Kyle Orton is a capable game manager and directs the offense without many mistakes, but defense has been the difference. Linebacker Elvis Dumervil has 10.0 sacks and Broncos are No. 2 in scoring defense (13.7 ppg) and .No. 1 team in yards allowed (266.7). More than the numbers is the aggressive way the Broncos storm to the football and tackle well. Few teams in the league match Denver’s fervor when it comes to gang tackling.

Needs improvement: The Broncos caught plenty of breaks, which may not continue. In order to make up for that, the running game must improve. The Broncos are running for 123.1 yards per game, ranking 11th. If that gets better, it'll give Orton more time to find Brandon Marshall, who remains an elite talent at receiver.
