DENVER - The Denver Broncos much maligned offensive line broke their silence last week. They made an earsplitting statement Sunday.Behind blockers angry over being scapegoated for the teams myriad problems, the Broncos found the balance, ground game and pocket of protection that had eluded them during their recent slide.Capitalizing on this newfound nastiness, Peyton Manning threw four TD passes, including three to Demaryius Thomas, and C.J. Anderson ran for 167 yards and the go-ahead score in Denvers 39-36 win over Miami on Sunday.We all needed to be accountable to our teammates, guard Orlando Franklin said. We felt weve been letting our teammates down and not taking care of business.With perfect balance — 35 runs and 35 throws — the Broncos (8-3) overcame an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to stay atop the highly competitive AFC West.They took so much (heat) during the week, Anderson said of the O-line, which is building chemistry on the run after wholesale changes three weeks ago. Theyre still human and some of them got feelings. Theyre not going to tell you, but some of them were hurt.They put the hurt on the Dolphins to the tune of 201 yards, but the Broncos first lead didnt come until Andersons 6-yard run up the middle with 5:01 left put Denver ahead 32-28.Then, Ryan Tannehills pass skipped off Jarvis Landrys left hand to T.J. Ward, whose 37-yard return set up Wes Welkers insurance TD catch.The Broncos needed it after Tannehill drove the Dolphins (6-5) on another scoring drive, hitting Landry from a yard out with 1:34 left. Lamar Millers 2-point dive made it a three-point game.The Dolphins onside kick was recovered by — who else? — Anderson, who sealed the game with a 26-yard run that could have been longer had he not slid so the Broncos could get in victory formation.You just have to give it up to the big boys up front. They took so much heat the outside and the media all week, said Anderson, who added 28 yards on four catches.Manning became the third player in NFL history with touchdown passes in 50 consecutive games, joining Drew Brees (54) and Tom Brady (52). He threw for 257 yards on 28-of-35 passing.Emmanuel Sanders led the way with nine catches for 125 yards, and Thomas finished with 10 catches for 87 yards, failing to match Calvin Megatron Johnsons NFL record of eight straight 100-yard games.His consolation was three touchdowns.Nah, Thomas said he asked if he was disappointed. ... I just wanted to win the game. I had a decent game, helped the team. The main thing is we won the game.Tannehill (26 of 36 for 227 yards with three TDs) kept the Dolphins a step ahead much of the afternoon.Miami went ahead 28-17 on Tannehills 5-yard TD toss to Landry after Isaiah Burse fumbled a punt at his own 12.Manning drove the Broncos downfield and found Thomas from 5 yards out, then hit Sanders with the 2-point pass to pull Denver to 28-25 with 14:09 remaining.I thought the best thing our team did was we stayed pretty calm, Manning said. We just had a real calm demeanour the entire game. Everybody did. And that definitely proved to be a key factor late in the game.The only time the Broncos lost their cool came when Brandon McManus clanked a 33-yard field goal try off the right upright after Manning had tripped on third-and-1 from the 7 for his only sack.His teammates could hardly hide their anguish. On the sideline, centre Manny Ramirez ripped his helmet off and hollered as Thomas slammed his helmet to the ground.To come away with no points was really disappointing, Manning said, and once again it could have been that this is not our day type of mentality. We just said, Hey, its obviously going to be a dogfight.Ultimately, it was the Dolphins who would lament the loss, the Broncos balance having thrown them off.Theyre known for throwing the ball all over the place, cornerback Brent Grimes said. They had a plan to run the ball and control the game like that. They did a good job of it.Franklin was happy for the one-week reprieve from the criticism.This is the NFL. One week, youre great and the next week, theyre talking about you like they talked about you last week, he said. It really doesnt matter what everybody else thinks as long as we got the win tonight and as long as our teammates are happy with each and every one of us.NOTES: Broncos CBs Aqib Talib (hamstring) and Kayvon Webster (shoulder) left the game as did MLB Brandon Marshall (concussion). ...

Fake Vapormax 3 .com) - The San Francisco Giants delivered plenty of big hits to tie the World Series.LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins made official Monday what hes been telling folks all along: Hes headed to the NBA after his only season with the Jayhawks. The 6-foot-8 forward, who was voted second-team All-America earlier in the day, is expected to go in the top three picks in the June draft. Many believe he could go first overall. "It wasnt an easy decision because the fans showed me so much love here," said Wiggins, choking up briefly during a news conference at Allen Fieldhouse. "I just wish I had more time. College goes by so fast. I can see why people stay all four years." The Canadian was the top-rated recruit when he arrived at Kansas, and his brief career was a bit of a roller coaster. He struggled early in the season, caught fire midway through, and then flamed out when it mattered most in an NCAA tournament loss to Stanford. Wiggins, from Vaughan, Ont., only scored four points on 1-for-6 shooting in the third-round defeat. Afterward, he said despondently that he let his team down with his poor performance. That ultimately didnt have any bearing on his decision, though. He announced he was going pro while joined by Kansas coach Bill Self, his parents -- former NBA player Mitchell Wiggins and Olympic silver medallist Marita Payne Wiggins -- his older brother Mitchell Jr., and several of his teammates, including fellow freshmen Wayne Selden and Joel Embiid. Selden has already announced hes returning for his sophomore season. Embiid has not made a decision, even though hes also expected to be a top-five pick in the draft. Wiggins certainly had a historic season at Kansas. He averaged a freshman-record 17.1 points and nearly six rebounds per game, and was voted the APs Big 12 freshman of the year and first-team all-conference. "Obviously this announcement needed to happen," said Self, who believes one of the biggest challenges Wiggins will face is realizing that basketball will suddenly become his job. "Its not like this year. He came in with so much hype, and whether he knew it or not, everybody was salivating for a chance to go against a guy with that much hype," Self said.dddddddddddd. "And hes going to the next level with a lot of hype, but men are going to be saying, Whoa, whoa, whoa, rook. Ive been doing this a long time and youre going to have to earn your way." Wiggins simply flashed a smile when asked if he was ready for it. "Just listening to him now," his father said, "Im thinking about when he was that little bitty kid that was dirty, and not listening, and now? Hes a young man that I think gets it. I think hes going to do very well." Hes also made it through his freshman season healthy. Unlike Embiid, Wiggins never had to deal with any nagging injuries, and his mother said that factored into his decision. "The best thing is hes not injured. Hes able to go ahead and complete part of his goals," she said. "Every day is a new day. He has no injuries and hes ready to go." Self said Embiid is still wrestling with his stay-or-go decision. The 7-footer from Cameroon was waylaid late in the season by a stress fracture in his back, and that could factor into Embiids draft status, along with the fact that hes only been playing basketball for a few years. Embiid slipped out of the room immediately after Wiggins had finished speaking Monday, but Self told a few reporters that he had not made his decision, despite a report last week that said Embiid would enter the draft. "That doesnt mean he couldnt still do that, but that was gun-jumping," Self said. "It certainly upset him, because somebody that was a source obviously didnt have good information." Self doesnt expect Embiid to make his intentions known anytime soon. "The decision he needs to make is whats best for him," Self said, "whether to stay another year or to go, and I could see him do either one of them. And I think you could make a case that either one would be a good decision. Hes not quite like Andrew whos been playing the game his whole life. Hes only been playing three years. Hes still trying to figure it out." ' ' '
