ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Peyton Manning's four big targets have combined for 30 touchdown catches so far, yet the most important receiver the Denver Broncos have right now isn't Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker or Julius Thomas.
It's running back Knowshon Moreno.
Over the last month, none of Denver's "Fearsome Foursome" of pass-catchers has collected more than Moreno's two dozen receptions.
Moreno's proficiency at catching the ball out of the backfield just might prove the best antidote for all those beatings Manning's been taking lately, too.
