Denver Broncos general manager John Elway: 'We haven't peaked, yet'

Monday September 15th, 2014

On Sunday, Denver Broncos general manager John Elway told reporters "with sarcasm and a smile" that after two close game -- which the Broncos both won -- the team hasn't peaked yet, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.

The Broncos held on to win Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, 24-17. The team's 31-24 opening week victory came against the Indianapolis Colts. The team led 24-0 in the second quarter.

On Sunday, the Broncos play the Seattle Seahawks, in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl. Seattle beat Denver 43-8.

Former Broncos tight end Shannon Sharpe, to The Denver Post:

"The Broncos have played two very good first halves," Sharpe said. "That won't be good enough next week against Seattle. They know that. They have to play better. They will play better.

"But I think San Diego showed Seattle is beatable. Everybody was talking about them like they were the '76 Steelers. Are they a good football team? Absolutely. But they're beatable."
