DENVER (AP) — Just like Denver's Garett Bolles, Tennessee's Taylor Lewan has been dogged by penalties all season, and the Titans' struggling left tackle did just what the Broncos' grabby left tackle did earlier this season: he went on a postgame rant about the flags in the locker room after a...

Broncos likely to start Allen after bye _ maybe not for long

Nov. 7, 2019 1:36 PM EST

DENVER (AP) — Brandon Allen's first start for the Denver Broncos nearly rivaled that of Peyton Manning. It was that efficient. It was that precise. It may not matter.
