ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Britton Colquitt's right leg seemed to get as much work as Tim Tebow's left arm last year. He punted an astonishing 101 times, which he likens to packing two years' worth of experience into one season.
This year, it's down to 37 punts, on pace for 66.
Such is life with Peyton Manning under center in Denver.
Colquitt's still getting plenty of work - as Matt Prater's holder. The Broncos kicker has already collected more PATs than he did all of last season.
Yes, Manning's having a great year. Von Miller, too. With Trindon Holliday scoring touchdowns on a kickoff return and a punt return in consecutive games, special teams are the binding to this story of the Broncos' resurgence.
