When Peyton Manning joined the Broncos, it also changed the dynamics of the AFC West. Their pass defense was rarely challenged in two games against Denver last season, when Tim Tebow was their quarterback. That will certainly change now that Manning is Denver’s quarterback.
“We’ve got the mindset we’re going to win the AFC West,” Flowers said. “Peyton Manning, he’s a quarterback that everyone wants to have. He’s not going to turn the ball over, he’s not going to make critical mistakes.
“But I’m going out there saying if my man can’t get open, he won’t have no one to throw the ball to. So as long as I do my part, we’re not too worried about Peyton Manning.”
