With the euphoria of the "Immaculate Deflection" subsiding, the Denver Broncos returned to work addressing plenty of problems that were exposed in their wild and wacky win at Cincinnati.
Coach Josh McDaniels says he's relieved that his players, while not executing as expected, did enough things right Sunday to give them a chance at the end.
Before Brandon Stokley's 87-yard touchdown catch on a deflected pass with 11 seconds left gave them an farfetched 12-7 win, the Broncos' offense did little.
Kyle Orton had thrown for just 156 yards, Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall and top draft pick Knowshon Moreno were a step slow and the bumbling offense failed to take any heat off Denver's defense.
