In 2012, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos ranked fifth in total passing offense at 283.4 yards per game. That's not bad with Brandon Stokley as their No. 3 wide receiver behind the deep-ball talent of Demaryius Thomas, the all-around game of Eric Decker and the production from the tight end position between Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen. Not to mention the fact that Denver held plenty of late leads and was able to milk the clock with the run more than most teams.
