Resiliency of Broncos Weather One Crisis After Another

Resilient Broncos weather one crisis after another

The Denver Broncos have seen it all in this drama-filled season. ''We've had a lot of ups and downs,'' wide receiver Eric Decker said Thursday. It's a testament to everybody if we can finish out the season strong with a win this Sunday and go into the playoffs with some momentum.'' The Broncos need 18 points against the Raiders (4-11) to become the highest-scoring team in league history and 28 to become the first 600-point team. They've transcended their troubles despite an injury epidemic that has claimed Rahim Moore, Kevin Vickerson, Champ Bailey, Wes Welker, Ryan Clady, Derek Wolfe, Wesley Woodyard and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a combined 43 games, testing their depth and fortitude.
