DENVER -- Apparently itll take more than the Atlanta Falcons groundbreaking aerial performance against Carolina to impress the Denver Broncos No Fly Zone secondary.Matt Ryan and Julio Jones bring the leagues No. 1 offense to Denver for a showdown Sunday between the Falcons (3-1) and the unbeaten Broncos (4-0).A week ago, Ryan and Jones became the first duo in NFL history to post a 500-yard passing and 300-yard receiving performance in the same game.Ryan threw for a career-high 503 yards and four touchdowns against Carolina.Meh.Not as impressive as it sounds, Broncos safety T.J. Ward said. There were a lot of broken coverages and guys left wide open. They still did a good job fighting them, but it wasnt the game that I thought it was after watching it.Surely they were impressed by Jones becoming just the sixth receiver in NFL history to post a 300-yard game.Whatever.Just going against a young secondary, Broncos safety Darian Stewart said. They have big-play players and so we just have to go out there and play our technique and just play our game. They didnt do anything different, its just other guys were (using) bad technique and allowing the big plays.Broncos coach Gary Kubiak wont disparage the Falcons, noting Ryan is thriving in his second year of Kyle Shanahans scheme. He leads the league with 1,473 passing yards and a QB rating of 126.3.Those numbers are real, I know that, Kubiak said.So are these figures from the past three weeks against Denvers defense:-Andrew Luck came in off a 385-yard passing performance and was held to 197 yards.-Andy Dalton was coming off consecutive 366-yard showings and was limited to 206 yards.-And Jameis Winston was fresh off a 405-yard game when he managed just 179 yards.In the week before facing Denver, those three QBs combined for 1,156 yards, eight TDs, one interception and five sacks. Against Denver, they managed 584 yards and one TD with four interceptions and 14 sacks.Weve played a lot of good offenses, Denver defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said. But this one might be the best.Bring it on, said Ward.We lick our chops every week. This is another opportunity to go out there and prove ourselves and put another performance on film, Ward said. It doesnt matter who we get week-to-week. We want to do our best so it doesnt matter whos coming in here.The Falcons first trip to Denver since 2014 is dripping with other subplots:QB CONUNDRUM: Emmanuel Sanders doesnt care if its Trevor Siemian or rookie Paxton Lynch throwing passes his way Sunday. Lynch had an impressive NFL debut in relief last week after Siemian bruised his left (non-throwing) shoulder on a sack at Tampa.You dont want to put too much emphasis on the quarterback position, said Sanders, pointing out all the young QBs with early season successes. Its about team and its about chemistry. Thats what its about.MUSICAL ARMS: Denver has won six straight regular-season games with four different QBs: Peyton Manning, Brock Osweiler, Siemian and Lynch. The previous team to do that was the 1986 Bears (Doug Flutie, Steve Fuller, Jim McMahon and Mike Tomczak).A great defense always helps, running back C.J. Anderson said, and then the 10 guys on offense doing their job to make the quarterbacks job easier. People say its a quarterback-driven league, and all our quarterbacks have played well with their opportunity. If we continue to do our job the way we know we can do it, it makes their job that much easier.LINEBACKER LIMBO: The Falcons have a long list of injuries at linebacker. Sean Weatherspoon went on IR with an Achilles injury from Atlantas 48-33 win over the Panthers and rookie Deion Jones left the game with a calf injury. Weatherspoon started against Carolina with rookie DeVondre Campbell (ankle) out along with Paul Worrilow (groin). LaRoy Reynolds, Phillip Wheeler and recently added A.J. Hawk could be called upon Sunday.MILLERS PROPS: Von Miller says two Falcons were instrumental in his career: 36-year-old defensive end Dwight Freeney and defensive coordinator Richard Smith, his former position coach in Denver. Miller called Smith really a catalyst in getting me going. ... Some of the stuff that he taught me I still use to this day.He also uses the wicked spin move Freeney taught him one offseason.That was something I really wanted to do, something I really wanted in my arsenal, said Miller, the NFLs sack leader with 5+.COLEMAN STATUS: Falcons coach Dan Quinn said backup RB Tevin Colemans breakaway speed will be on display Sunday. There was some question over whether Coleman would sit this one out because he was born with sickle cell trait that could negatively affect him in Denvers mile-high altitude.Hes in great shape and cant wait to play, Quinn said.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---AP Sports Writer Charles Odum contributed.

STORRS, Conn. -- With its road win over second-ranked Notre Dame on Wednesday, UConn has opened the 2016-17 season at 8-0 to extend its current winning streak to 83 games.The 72-61 victory over the Fighting Irish marked the second time this season the Huskies -- ranked third in the AP Top 25 preseason poll -- beat the nations No. 2 team.Prior to the Nov. 17 matchup with then-No. 2 Baylor, UConn coach Geno Auriemma said: Im somewhat realistic about what my expectation level is. Im realistic about what we can do, and I think the previous couple of years we would sit here and tell you that we were the favorite to win the national championship. Thats not the case this year. I know it, and I think everyone on our team knows it.But lets be realistic: Its time to talk about the Huskies being the favorites -- again.Weve seen this movie before. When Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Tamika Williams and Asjha Jones graduated after winning the 2002 national championship with a perfect 39-0 record, many thought the Huskies would be down on their luck the next year.The AP preseason poll ranked the 2003 Huskies fourth; the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll had UConn third. The Huskies werent supposed to extend a 39-game winning streak to 70. They werent supposed to go 37-1. They definitely werent supposed to win their second consecutive NCAA championship.Of course, a lot of things were different 14 years ago.The 2003 championship marked the programs fourth title. The Huskies now have 11. Their streak of 70 consecutive victories was the longest in Division I womens basketball history. UConn has since shattered its own record; it owns the top spot in all of Division I basketball, having unseated the 88-game streak the UCLA men put together (1971 to 74) with a 90-game winning streak from 2009 to 11.And most of all, in 2003, UConn had Diana Taurasi and no one else did.While Taurasi was the primary reason for UConns championship-level success in 2003 (and 2004), the defining characteristic of the 2003 squad was the fact that its composition worked (Taurasi averaged 17.6 points per game). It just so happened that its composition required Wonder Woman in the form of a basketball player.There is obviously no Taurasi at UConn this season, and quite frankly, there doesnt need to be. What makes this version of the Huskies work is how mmalleable they are.dddddddddddd They create matchup difficulties all over the floor.Gabby Williams primarily plays inside but is increasingly stepping out to the perimeter, and she can guard pretty much anyone. Sophomore forward Napheesa Colliers movement off the ball and quickness make her difficult to guard for traditional forwards and centers.The perimeter doesnt get much more friendly with 6-foot-3 sophomore Katie Lou Samuelson and 6-foot junior Kia Nurse. Overall, size inside has the potential to be a big problem for UConn, but its quickness is a problem for everyone else.The most concerning thing for the Huskies is that their offense has stalled for atypical stretches, especially when Collier is not in the mix. Collier is averaging 19.1 points per game (Samuelson is right behind at 19.0 PPG), and when she is on the floor producing, Collier opens up the perimeter for Samuelson and Nurse. Without her on the floor, UConn struggles, as it did in the second quarter against Notre Dame (the Irish outscored the Huskies 20-11).And dont underestimate the intangibles. For the first time in years, UConn has gotten to play as the underdog. When the season started, few expected the Huskies to win another championship this year, and that has proven to matter.The differences my first two years and this year in the expectations people have for us, thats something that I play with a chip on my shoulder about, Nurse said before the Baylor game.Those expectations have already begun to shift, as reflected in UConn jumping Notre Dame for the No. 1 spot in the rankings this past week, despite the Irish remaining unbeaten at the time. It took the 2003 Huskies 13 weeks to top the rankings, doing so as the only remaining unbeaten team.This does not mean that UConn is somehow impenetrable. The Huskies still have to play at No. 4 Maryland (Dec. 29), home versus No. 6 South Carolina (Feb. 13), and home versus No. 12 Ohio State (Dec. 19). They could also lose unexpectedly, akin to the Huskies Big East championship loss to Villanova in 2003.In the grand scheme of things, 2003 probably doesnt matter that much to this crop of Huskies, but that teams success shows just how far they could go.
