NFL Preseason Free Pick: Take Denver. The Denver Broncos have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Last week, turnovers cost them against Seattle, as they fumbled their way to a 40-10 loss. Seattle scored on a 107-yard kickoff return and 106-yard fumble recovery. John Fox knows what his team can do but they have to tighten things up on both sides of the ball. Expect Peyton Manning and company to play the first half as they look to score more than 10 points for the first time in preseason. St. Louis hasn't had much success either on offense. Last week, they scored just seven points against Green Bay, falling by 12, at home. Last week, Manning completed 11-of-16 for 163 yards and one touchdown. The Broncos are also looking for more consistency at running back, as they fumbled the ball four times last week, including two from Ronnie Hillman. He's fighting with rookie Montee Ball and veteran Knowshon Moreno for the starting job. Expect the Broncos to win this battle from the high attitude in Colorado.
