October 29, 2005 - The last-second touchdown that strafed the Denver Broncos defense Sunday was shocking at the moment but hardly surprising in the final analysis. After all, it occurred from the red zone. The Broncos are among the worst in the league at defending their territory inside the 20-yard- line heading into their game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles at Invesco Field at Mile High (2:15 p.m., KDVR-Channel 31).
Bronco's scouting report, October 29 - Rocky Mountain News - Jeff Legwold
October 29, 2005 - The Eagles on Sunday held LaDainian Tomlinson to seven yards on 17 carries. Yes, that was 7 yards on 17 carries, a get-the-magnifying-glass 0.4 yards-per-carry average. The Eagles attack the line of scrimmage, move defenders around, and middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, at 262 pounds, is difficult to move out of the rush lanes. And for all their aggressive tendencies, they also play with discipline. But those who control Trotter have been able to move the ball.
Day after wreck, Carswell 'doing a lot better' - Rocky Mountain News - Jeff Legwold
October 29, 2005 - Denver Broncos guard Dwayne Carswell might be moved from the intensive care unit of a local hospital today, coach Mike Shanahan said, as Carswell begins his recovery from injuries suffered in a Thursday morning car accident. "He's doing a lot better," Shanahan said. "He's still in ICU. Hopefully, he can be out of there by (today). He can take some visitors, so that's a good sign. We feel very good about his progress." Carswell suffered multiple broken ribs, a ruptured spleen and a ruptured diaphragm when his 1994 Chevrolet sedan was hit just after 7 a.m. Thursday as part of a five-car accident when Carswell was traveling south on Parker Road in Aurora. Shanahan said Carswell had been taken off a ventilator, and Friday he had been upgraded from critical to serious condition.
Patterson not feeling pressure - Daily Camera - Ryan Thorburn
October 29, 2005 — As the halfway point of the NFL season nears, Denver and Cleveland are tied for last in the league with eight quarterback sacks. The Broncos, of course, acquired four former Cleveland defensive linemen during the offseason — Gerard Warren (2.0 sacks), Ebenezer Ekuban (1.0), Courtney Brown (1.0) and Michael Myers (no sacks). The Browns are rebuilding under first-year head coach Romeo Crennel, whose 3-4 defense is ranked 29th overall (28th against the run and 23rd against the pass). Andre Patterson, Cleveland's defensive line coach from 2003-04, isn't feeling the pressure in his first season as Denver's defensive line coach because he says the revamped front four is getting plenty of pressure on the quarterback.
Cut block is a big weapon for Broncos - phillyBurbs.com - Jeff Offord
October 29, 2005 — PHILADELPHIA - Do they cheat, or are they really just better than everybody else? The Denver Broncos have annually fielded the most feared offensive line in the National Football League. Feared in more ways than one, too. Not always huge, the Broncos are always smart, strong, quick on their feet, and sometimes a little dirty. The Eagles face the Broncos at 4:15 p.m. Sunday at Invesco Field at Mile High. The Eagles are 4-2 and tied atop the NFC East with both the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. The Eagles will need a win to hold their share of first place since the Redskins and Giants face off at the Meadowlands. Picking up a win at Mile High, however, won't be easy, considering how low the Broncos will go to make a block.

Saturday, October 29, 2005 – When the New England Patriots came to town in Week 6, the Broncos sent them into their bye week with a loss. Denver was shaken from a five-game win streak Sunday with a loss to the Giants and will fight to go into next week's bye with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid brings his 4-2 Eagles to INVESCO Field at Mile High for a matchup with the AFC West-leading 5-2 Broncos. The Eagles will bring a true show in Terrell Owens and hope to find their running game, all the while using their receiving corp to spread the ball.
