DENVER - Steve Downie and Max Talbot, forwards who were traded for each other on Halloween, had different perspectives when they faced their former teams on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. Downie, a winger who returned to the Flyers' third line on Thursday, downplayed his return to Denver. He played across three seasons with Colorado but got into only 33 games. "Injuries," Downie said before the game, when asked to characterize his tenure with the Avalanche. "It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. I never really got to show what I could do, but at the same time, it's over with.

DENVER - Things were certainly out of whack last night at the Pepsi Center. In the first 15 minutes of play between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets, there was a total of 22 fouls called. For two teams who like to play at a quicker pace, the refs had them playing in mud early on. The Sixers, usually horrendous at covering the three-point shot, limited the Nuggets to just one make in their first eight attempts. Meanwhile, the Sixers drained half of their first 14. Both teams had been struggling recently to score, a big reason why Denver had lost seven in a row. But the Sixers scored a season-high 68 points in the first half, also yielding 56. Strange happenings, indeed.

DENVER - Second-year forward Arnett Moultrie is getting very close to suiting up for the 76ers for the first time this season after having been sidelined since training camp following ankle surgery in September. For him to get some minutes, Moultrie must get his timing back and get into game shape. If he is to get minutes, perhaps even extended ones, coach Brett Brown said the 23-year-old will have to get rid of the stigma attached to him. "He's looking just like he should be looking, he's looking really out of place in relation to timing and fitness," Brown said.

DENVER - There was a buoyant atmosphere in the 76ers locker room after their surprising road victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. Now they have a chance to follow up Sunday night's rarity - their first road win in 13 tries - with something that hasn't been accomplished since the first week of November. A victory over Denver on Wednesday at the Pepsi Center would mark the Sixers' first winning streak since opening the season with consecutive triumphs over Miami, Washington and Chicago.

Lockheed Martin Corp. is laying off 4,000 workers, including 1,050 in Newtown, Bucks County, as the nation's largest defense contractor consolidates operations in response to reduced government spending. By mid-2015, Lockheed will shutter the Newtown plant, which designs and develops commercial and military satellites, including weather satellites and ones for NASA. Lockheed Martin, based in Bethesda, Md., also announced plans Thursday to close plants in Akron, Ohio; Goodyear, Ariz.; and Horizon City, Texas, and to shut down four buildings on its Sunnyvale, Calif., campus.

BRANDON BOYKIN is listed at 5-10, 185. Maybe there was a time when he would have been able to play linebacker effectively in the NFL, but that time faded into memory right around when the Eagles dropped those blue-and-yellow 1930s uniforms. Nonetheless, Boykin found himself an inadvertent outside linebacker for a few minutes Sunday in Denver. Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis later explained he'd sent Boykin out thinking the Broncos were running a three-wideout set. Instead they were going with two tight ends.

As if Peyton Manning wasn't enough of a challenge, the Eagles must also consider the high altitude when visiting the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Coach Chip Kelly has experience bringing his fast-paced offense to the Rocky Mountains. In a 2011 Oregon game against Colorado, Kelly's Ducks scored 45 points in three quarters even without their starting quarterback and running back. "I think what makes a difference when you play at altitude is who you play against," Kelly said. "We played against the University of Colorado a couple years ago, it wasn't a big deal.

FACT THAT might have escaped notice amidst widespread hand-wringing over what Peyton Manning might do Sunday against the Eagles' defense: While it's true that only three NFL teams have given up more passing yards through 3 weeks than the Eagles, it's also true that one of those teams is Denver. If the 10 1/2-point underdog Eagles are indeed going to have to shoot their way out of the Mile High city to survive, maybe we ought to at least grant them a shooter's chance. Despite the turnovers and penalties that limited them to 16 points in last Thursday's loss to the Chiefs, the Birds have the NFL's second-ranked offense, at 461.7 yards per game, just 25 yards a game behind the top-ranked Broncos.

WHAT'S THE BIG deal about Peyton Manning throwing seven touchdowns in a game? When George Blanda did it in 1961, he kicked the seven extra points. Now that guy was fantasy gold. Actually, it was nice of Manning to put an end to the Week 1 drama for about 20 percent of the fantasy population. If you have him, you almost surely will win. If you are playing against him, Week 2 can't get here soon enough. The lightning around Denver Thursday night must have struck Manning's right arm at halftime.

Charlotte Hounds rookie attack Mike Sawyer just wanted to show the sport his team could do it. When he scored his fourth goal with 5 minutes, 44 seconds left to give the Hounds a 15-12 lead, he sprinted behind the net with his arms raised before he clenched his fists in an emotional release, ending a furious Denver Outlaws push and eventually sending underdog Charlotte to the Major League Lacrosse final with a 17-14 win.
