The victory was easily theirs, but you did not see much cavorting or hugging or anything closely identified with the jubilance we all have come to expect from our sports stars. Instead, throughout their 34-10 rout of the Houston Oilers yesterday in the AFC semifinals, the Broncos closed their eyes and remembered what it felt like to fall short in last year's Super Bowl. They remembered, and it was not a nice little memory. They remembered, and proceeded to keep the Oilers off-balance all day. They remembered, and they took a step toward the Super Bowl, with another still to go in this Sunday's AFC championship game against Cleveland in Denver.

DENVER - It was amazing afterward, how quickly just about every Eagles player and coach got to the subject of their next game Sunday against the Giants. Maybe it's unfair to suggest this was their mindset - one foot pointed toward the charter flight home, during the 52-20 beating the visitors absorbed at Sports Authority Field - but there were sequences in the second half that reeked of the throwing-in of towels. This is not how a new regime turns things around. Eagles coach Chip Kelly acknowledged in a couple of spots during his postgame presser that you "get down a little bit" when the other team keeps prancing into the end zone, that "you get worn down in a game like this," against a quarterback who is approaching perfection, the way Peyton Manning is playing right now for the Broncos.

POLICE HAVE issued an arrest warrant for Broncos safety T.J. Ward on an assault charge stemming from a fight at a Denver strip club on May 9. "We have been aware of this issue and will continue to review all of the facts," the Broncos said in a statement. Court records show the disturbance happened at PT's All Nude. Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson did not know details of the incident but described it as "some type of disturbance at a nightclub. " He said Ward will be charged with a misdemeanor count of assault.

THE JOURNEY that Evan Mathis didn't really envision taking this season ended yesterday in Denver, where the guard who made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons for the Eagles signed a one-year contract that can pay him up to $4 million, with $2.5 million guaranteed. The news had barely hit Twitter when astute observers began noting that Mathis had been scheduled to make $5.5 million this season from the Eagles, not guaranteed, and $6 million in 2016. He was released in June because his unhappiness over his contract had spread across two offseasons, and kept him out of OTAs this spring.

Denver coach Mike Shanahan ended speculation yesterday by officially elevating rookie Jay Cutler to starting quarterback for the rest of the year, sending Jake Plummer to the bench. "He's our future, he's our present," Shanahan said. Cutler, the 11th pick out of Vanderbilt in the draft last April, hasn't taken a snap since the preseason. "I'm excited," Cutler said. "And a little nervous. " Shanahan is hoping a quarterback change can ignite the Broncos' struggling offense.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Most professional athletes don't have to waste a lot of time worrying about when they're going to retire. That decision usually is made for them. "Joe Bob, we really appreciate everything you've done for this organization the last 10 years. But we've decided to go in another direction. Here's the phone numbers for ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and NFL Network. Good luck. " The lucky few who do have the ability to write their own career ending usually are encouraged by fans and literati to retire sooner rather than later because, well, watching the skills of a great athlete erode is like watching a dog get old. Which brings us to Peyton Manning.

NEWARK, N.J. - In their second game of the season, a 41-23 win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium, the Broncos lost starting left tackle Ryan Clady to a season-ending foot injury. Next to quarterback, there might not be a more important position on the offense than left tackle, especially when it happens to be a two-time All-Pro such as Clady. If anything was going to ruin the 2013 Peyton Manning Victory Tour, it would be the loss of his dependable blindside wing man. But here we are, nearly 4 1/2 months later, and the Broncos are still alive and well, and getting ready to play the NFC-champion Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday in the same stadium where Clady's season abruptly ended.

NEWARK, N.J. - When Tony Carter first met Brian Dawkins as a Broncos teammate, he was too timid to remind him that they had met years before. Carter was an undrafted rookie cornerback and Dawkins had just signed a free-agent contract after 13 seasons with the Eagles. But they had met years prior in Jacksonville - their native city - when Carter was still in high school and Dawkins was his hero. "I was probably too embarrassed to say that. But he knew who I was," Carter said. "And soon as we met each other he said, 'Duval County!

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - "Knowshon sucks. " LeSean McCoy put that post on Twitter when a media member lauded Knowshon Moreno's performance against the Cowboys on Oct. 6. Moreno caught wind of the Eagles running back's critique a few hours after the Broncos outlasted Dallas, 51-48, and responded, via Twitter: "Glad [McCoy] was watching our game tonight. Great team win. Let's keep rolling. #5-0 #LetHatersHate #ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit. " Moreno was already in the midst of a comeback season, but he finished the final 11 games - rushing for 224 yards against the Patriots - with authority.

DEFENSE WINS championships and makes bookies nervous. Two years ago, the Broncos set a record with 76 touchdowns and 606 points. When they got to the Super Bowl, Seattle made 'em look like a JV team. No offense to JV teams, of course. But high-flying offenses have been notoriously unreliable in recent Super Bowls. Remember that New England juggernaut in 2007? The Patriots couldn't fall out of bed without scoring three touchdowns. Put up just two in the Supe as David Tyree walked into history: Giants, 17-14.

IN FEBRUARY Brandon McManus kicked three field goals to help the Denver Broncos win their first Super Bowl since general manager John Elway was their quarterback. He has a massive ring that he recently received to show for it, after making all 10 of his attempts during the playoff run, the first to ever do that. Sunday, the former Temple Owl was back at his high school, North Penn in Lansdale, to conduct a football skills camp for kids both young and older at Crawford Stadium with an assist from some of his college teammates.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Here was Evan Mathis, eight months removed from being released by Chip Kelly, rocking the Lombardi Trophy like a baby in the 49ers locker room over which his former boss now presides. That Kelly thought cutting Mathis without better options would improve the Eagles in their quest for an elusive Super Bowl seems ludicrous now. The irony wasn't lost on the Broncos guard. "I really like your new facility," Mathis said when asked if he had a message for Kelly, the new coach of the 49ers.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Peyton Manning got his second Super Bowl ring. Now he can ride off into the sunset a winner. But it was the Broncos defense - and in particular Von Miller - that provided the venerable quarterback with a Hallmark ending to his career. The Broncos badgered, battered, and bloodied Cam Newton for nearly 60 minutes Sunday night as they put the 26-year-old Panthers quarterback's coronation on hold for at least one year. They survived the ineptness of their own offense and their Hall of Fame quarterback and cemented their place in NFL history as one of the league's greatest defenses with a 24-10 win in Super Bowl 50 for their third championship.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Jordan Norwood was out of football in 2013. He spent the 2014 season on injured reserve after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. On Sunday, the Broncos wide receiver set a Super Bowl record with a 61-yard punt return in the second quarter. The Penn State product fielded a high-arching 28-yard punt, and the Panthers appeared to think he had called for a fair catch. But Norwood never raised his hand. He escaped from two initial would-be tacklers - Colin Jones and Teddy Williams - at the 25 and raced around the corner down to the Carolina 14. "It was a short punt," Norwood said.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - This wasn't quite how Hollywood would've written it. Their version of Peyton Manning's NFL farewell would have had him putting the Broncos on his 39-year-old back and leading them to victory in Super Bowl 50. Maybe throwing three or four touchdown passes or leading a valiant, fourth-quarter comeback. As it turned out, the future Hall of Fame quarterback was more passenger than driver in the Broncos' 24-10 victory over Carolina, which pretty much has been the case all season.

JEFF McLANE Staff Writer One of the common refrains heard here in the Bay Area in the lead-up to Super Bowl 50 is that if it is a blowout the Panthers will win and if it is a nail-biter it will be the Broncos who come out on top. While it is true that the Panthers have more overall talent on both sides of the ball, it's not as if the Broncos are chumps. They had the No. 1 overall defense during the regular season and managed to make Tom Brady look ordinary in the AFC championship game.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Brandon McManus wants to run a Super Bowl someday. But first, he has to play in one. And, of course, the Broncos kicker would like nothing more than to win one with a game-winning kick. "I always felt I was destined for this," McManus said this week. "I always wanted to take the penalty kick in soccer, the final free throws in basketball. It's kind of who I always was growing up. I've trained my body how to handle and control the stress and nervousness of it. " McManus, a Lansdale native and product of North Penn High School and Temple, has already proved that he can make clutch field goals in the NFL. He booted the clincher in overtime against the Bengals in Week 16. He went 5 for 5 in Denver's divisional playoff win over the Steelers.

YO, THIS is one thing I've actually done well at the last few years, which is more than I can say for my weekly college football picks. So let's try to have some fun again, and make a little rent money in the process. I always try to look for stuff with decent odds. So you won't see many even-money plays here. But I'll try Lady Gaga to go sing the national anthem in under 2 minutes, 20 seconds. It'll be close. And I'm usually an over guy. If nothing else, it gives you something to root for before the coin flip.

Broncos (+6) over Panthers OK, I have permission from Mrs. Vic to hit Larry Flynt's Hustler Club here in Vegas and try to win big, really big. She has only one rule: No touching. Here's the skinny: Every touchdown will be worth $100 to one of the guests. There will also be $1,000 prizes, and one partygoer (hopefully yours truly) will walk out with $1 million. Now the pick. It's gonna be Denver and we bought the Broncos at plus-6 points . And the reasons are Peyton Manning , the Broncs' 'D,' the Super Bowl ref and a perfecto as an underdog.
