  DENVER - Peyton Manning didn't have to outduel Tom Brady in the AFC championship game Sunday. The Broncos' defense made sure of that. Another Manning vs. Brady postseason classic never materialized because the Broncos' defense stuffed the run, pressured Brady at critical moments and took advantage of his ill-timed inaccuracy. It amounted to an orange tidal wave that the Denver Broncos rode to a 26-16 victory over the New England Patriots and a berth in Super Bowl XLVIII against the Seattle Seahawks.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller tried to cheat the NFL's drug-testing program with the help of the person assigned to collect his urine sample, according to an ESPN report. Miller, who was second in the league with 18 1/2 sacks last season, had been suspended for the first six games -- inexplicably, two more games than the typical NFL penalty for that transgression. According to the report, Miller's representatives and the players union were prepared to fight his initial four-game suspension but backed off when they became aware Miller and the collector worked together to help the player avoid a failed choice.

Most of the fanfare surrounding the Denver Broncos lately has been generated by quarterback Tim Tebow. But rest assured, rookie Von Miller is the type of player who keeps opposing coaches from sleeping soundly. Miller, an outside linebacker drafted second overall, has 9 1/2 sacks, which is two shy of the franchise record set by Rulon Jones in 1980, and five off the NFL rookie record set by Jevon Kearse in 1999. Miller has six games to eclipse those marks, starting with Sunday's AFC West matchup at San Diego.

UCLA coaches were a little unsure what to do with Nate Iese, the 6-foot-3, 243-pound specimen from Elk Grove, Calif. He was on offense, then defense and spent 2012 as a redshirt. Iese, moved to Y-back in the spring, is now a guy offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone is itching to have ready. “I'm like that kid that found a five-carat diamond in Arkansas,” Mazzone said. “You think, is it really worth that much money? Then you cut it up and shine it up and it's a gem.” That's a long walk for a short drink of water, but his point is well taken.

Writers from around Tribune Co. predict which teams will reach and advance in the playoffs this NFL season. Feel free to join the conversation with a comment of your own.  Sam Farmer, Los Angeles Times In the AFC, I like New England, Cincinnati, Houston and Denver winning their divisions, with Pittsburgh and San Diego emerging as wild-card teams. The AFC championship game I see is Cincinnati at Denver, and I can see the Broncos winning that to go on to the Super Bowl. With the first legitimate off-season he's had in four years -- one in which he hasn't been recovering from an injury or searching for a new team -- Peyton Manning is well positioned to make a run at his fifth MVP award.
