They’re also 5-1 against the spread over that span, and have covered the number in four straight games. Led by Peyton Manning, a rushing attack that features Willis McGahee, a passing game that has playmakers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, as well as a stout defense, the Broncos are now in full control of the AFC West at 6-3.
