DENVER: This is basically Peyton Manning's offense, which means they take what opponents give them when it comes to the running game. Offensive line coach Dave Magazu has brought zone blocking back to Denver, even if it's not to the extent that it was during the Mike Shanahan heyday. Rookie Montee Ball should lead the committee, as he's their best runner and an effective pass protector; there's no such thing as a 'running down' with Manning. It will essentially be a hot hand situation between Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman for the rest of the snaps. Manning is essentially doing the same thing he did in Indianapolis. It's a lot of pre-snap adjustments and, because of his deteriorating arm strength, more quick hitters. Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker will work on the outside as receiver 1 and 1A. They'll go to a three-receiver base with Wes Welker coming in, and the former Patriot will likely take over as Manning's No. 1 target. Joel Dreessen is more of a blocking tight end, though he does see a few safety-valve targets. Jacob Tamme's playing time figures to drop with Welker's arrival. The Broncos remained a balanced team in the red zone, mostly because opponents often kept extra defensive backs on the field against Manning. The Broncos tied the NFL lead with 52 sacks in their first year under DC Jack Del Rio in 2012, but departed with DE Elvis Dumervil (11 sacks) due to an agent fax machine error. However, OLB Von Miller (18.5 sacks) remains along with versatile OLB Wesley Woodyard (117 tackles). The addition of playmaking CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (16 INT, 4 TD in career) helps make up for losing CB Tracy Porter, and future Hall-of-Famer CB Champ Bailey is still playing at a high level. Having the NFL's easiest schedule also helps a lot.
DALLAS: Jason Garrett will give up his play-calling duties to new offensive coordinator Bill Callahan this year. That should mean more work for the running game after a year in which the Cowboys were the second-most pass-heavy team in football (66.2 percent). Callahan is an O-Line guru who has built a quality zone-blocking scheme in Dallas. DeMarco Murray will continue to take a true No. 1 workload, with a battle for carries behind him. Rookie Joseph Randle fits the system and should be the long-term No. 2, though either scat back Lance Dunbar or big back Phillip Tanner could hold the job early. Garrett runs an aggressive Air Coryell passing game, though it figures to be reigned in a bit after last year's pass-heavy play-calling. The Cowboys use a lot of two-back base looks, though later in the year they might start using Miles Austin in the slot and Terrence Williams outside. Dez Bryant is now the clear-cut No. 1 option on most plays, getting the ball any time he's in single coverage on the outside. Romo often comes back to TE Jason Witten, heavily used as an intermediate-to-short target. Austin does more catch-and-run work over the middle and will stretch the seam. Garrett is willing to keep it on the ground in the red zone, with Murray the primary goal line back. Dallas will switch to a 4-3 under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and D-Line coach Rod Marinelli, the DC for Chicago's amazing 44-turnover defense last year. This will hopefully increase the team's paltry 16 takeaways as DeMarcus Ware (111 career sacks) shifts to DE, Sean Lee mans the MLB spot and Bruce Carter explodes from the WLB position. The Cowboys also inked two new starters via free agency, SLB Justin Durant and FS Will Allen. Young CBs Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr are both developing nicely.

(ADDS Trevathan injury)

*Broncos-Cowboys Preview* =========================


John Fox insists it's not just coach-speak when he says his unbeaten Denver Broncos have plenty of room for improvement.

He, of course, isn't referring to their stellar aerial game led by Peyton Manning, who Sunday will face a Dallas Cowboys defense that hasn't been very good against the pass.

Manning is off the best start of his career heading into his first visit to Dallas' $1.2 billion stadium. He leads the league in completions (117), completion percentage (75.0), yards (1,470), touchdowns (16) and passer rating (138.0) while not throwing an interception.

Manning went 28 of 34 for 327 yards and four touchdowns - two each to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker - before sitting out the fourth quarter of a 52-20 win over Philadelphia on Sunday. Denver set a team record for points.

The Broncos are averaging league bests of 44.8 points and 483.0 yards of offense. Last week's win was a team-record 15th straight in the regular season, and Manning extended his streak of throwing at least one TD pass to 27 games.

"He's efficient, man," defensive back Champ Bailey said. "And hopefully he gets better - I don't know how, but hopefully he does - because this guy's a prime example of what it takes to be a great quarterback in this league.

"I know a lot of quarterbacks wish they could do it like that."

Despite Manning's success, Fox doesn't think his team is perfect despite the Broncos (4-0) getting off to such a solid start. He may be nitpicking, but he'd like to see more from the running game and better defense in the fourth quarter.

Denver averaged 86.0 yards rushing in its first two contests, though that has increased to 152.5 over the last two. The Broncos have allowed a touchdown in the final quarter of each game.

"It's still early in the season and I expect us to get better," Fox said. "People look at me funny when I say that, but there's still a lot of areas we need to improve at and can improve at."

The last time Manning faced the Cowboys, he went 36 of 48 for 365 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw four interceptions in Indianapolis' 38-35 overtime loss Dec. 5, 2010.

Dallas (2-2) is hoping it can have that kind of success against Manning this time around as well, especially after allowing 506 yards and 20 unanswered points in a 30-21 loss to San Diego on Sunday.

The Cowboys gave up 401 yards and three touchdowns through the air and are tied with Minnesota and the New York Giants for worst in the league with 10 TD passes allowed.

They rank 27th in the league in pass defense at 304.5 yards per game.

"Yeah, we made mistakes, but it's never going to happen again," defensive end DeMarcus Ware said. "People say never say never, but I feel like it's never going to happen again playing a game like that. That's just the way I feel about it."

Coach Jason Garrett realizes that Manning is just a part of the challenge his defense faces this week. Welker is tied for the NFL lead with six touchdown receptions and Thomas is tied for sixth with 393 receiving yards.

"He's obviously as good of a quarterback who has ever played this game, and he's got a lot of weapons," Garrett said. "Not only do you have this incredibly good quarterback who has a great understanding of what he wants to do, but he's got some weapons to do it with."

Tony Romo is having a solid season with eight touchdowns and one interception while ranking fourth with a 105.0 passer rating. He's completed 72.4 percent of his passes - his career best in a full season is 66.3 percent in 2011 - after going 27 of 37 for 244 yards and two touchdowns last week, both to Dez Bryant.

DeMarco Murray ran for 70 yards against the Chargers and is third in the league with 356 on the season, but Denver is allowing a league-low 74.0 rushing yards per game. The Broncos are 30th with an average of 316.3 passing yards allowed, but Garrett believes that number has been inflated due to Denver holding large leads in each contest.

"If you analyze the statistics, they've been ahead in a lot of games and teams have had to throw the ball and not run it quite as much," Garrett said. "They're very stout against the run, and they're willing to give up those (passing) yards to win the ballgame."

Broncos weakside linebacker Danny Trevathan is questionable after suffering a knee injury toward the end of Wednesday's practice. Trevathan, a second-year pro, is second on the team with 30 tackles and 24 unassisted tackles and has a sack, an interception and four pass breakups.

Denver has won four straight meetings with Dallas, taking the most recent one 17-10 on Oct. 4, 2009.
