A brilliant season ended in disastrous fashion for the Broncos last year when they were hammered unmercifully by the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.
The 49ers let a 17-0 lead against the Chicago Bears slip away, and while it was not all Colin Kaepernick’s fault, it was clear that he bore quite a bit of responsibility from the look on his face while standing on the sidelines and from a statistical point of view.

The Texans are on a roll after winning their first two games of the season, but one note of caution. They also won their first two games last year before finishing the season with a 2-14 record.
The Cowboys righted the ship in Week Two, and suddenly the Cowboys have the hope that this season may not be the disaster that many observers anticipated.
The Titans looked strong in the Week One win at St. Louis, but they couldn’t sustain that success in Week Two against a vulnerable Dallas Cowboys team.
The Redskins appeared to have a nightmarish start to their Week Two game against Jacksonville when Robert Griffin III went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter, but backup Kirk Cousins stepped in and led Washington to a 41-10 victory.
“The travel got to be quite a bit,” Brian Urlacher said.
The Chargers face the dangerous situation of flying East to take on the Buffalo Bills for an early Sunday game.
