Former UCF wide receiver Brandon Marshall is taking the NFL by storm in 2008, as he has helped his Denver Broncos to a 3-0 start with the highest-scoring offense in the NFL.

Brandon Marshall is off to a fantastic start as he has caught 24 passes for 321 yards and two touchdowns on the young season. The former Knight's 24 receptions ranks him second in the NFL despite missing the Broncos season-opening 41-14 victory over Oakland, as he sat out with a player conduct suspension.

Brandon Marshall's average of 160.5 yards receiving per game not only leads the NFL, but obliterates the second-ranked player, Green Bay's Greg Jennings' average of 124.3 yards per game. Marshall's total of 321 receiving yards on the season ranks him second behind Jennings 373 yards, playing in one less game.

Marshall followed up his franchise record setting performance of a week ago with a six-catch, 155 yard game in a 34-32 victory over the New Orleans Saints which included a 35-yard touchdown reception.

"It was another shootout, and I'm glad we came out on top of them," Marshall said after the game. "We wanted to score every time we touched the ball. We definitely left a lot of points out on the field. It's early on in the season, and it's something that we need to grow from."

Marshall has put aside his off the field issues and is off to the best start of his career, and right now is the most productive receiver in the NFL.
