NEW YORK -- Comments on the Denver Broncos by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

DENVER BRONCOS (5)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 7) -- Peyton + defense + special teams quite a combination.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 4) -- The more you see, the more you realize the Broncos are dangerous.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 4)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 2) -- Can no longer overlook what's going on with the Broncos.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 7) -- The Peyton Manning MVP tour continues. Not a bad return for John Fox, either, as the former Panthers coach shows up his old team in 36-14 win.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 8) -- The Broncos have the best balance in the league this season, ranking third in the NFL in offense and sixth in defense. A player like Peyton Manning makes both sides of the ball better.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 6) -- There's a reason these guys did the Cam last weekend; their schedule, plus Peyton Manning, make them look like Supermen.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 7) -- A brutal early schedule has leveled off as the Broncos look to take command in the AFC West.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 2) -- Peyton Manning has the offense fired up like a well-tuned machine. The Broncos defense held the Panthers to 2.5 yards per carry, sacked Newton 7 times, and hit him another seven times.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 5) -- The Broncos are getting better as a team every week. All phases are pitching in. The defense held Cam Newton and the Panthers to 0 for 12 on third down, special teams have TD returns past two weeks, and Peyton and his offense continue to get better.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 2) -- Further proof of how much quarterback Peyton Manning is rolling -- the Broncos have scored at least 31 points each week during their four-game winning streak.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 8) -- In all phases of the game, they are looking better and better by the week.
