Broncos' wild offseason ends with loss to Cardinals

DENVER -- Ryan Lindley threw for two touchdowns for the Arizona Cardinals in a 32-24 victory over Denver on Thursday night, capping a wild offseason for the Broncos.

Now, this summer's trendy Super Bowl pick heads into next week's NFL kickoff against defending champion Baltimore after losing both of its "Doom & Gloom" pass-rush partners. Elvis Dumervil went to the Ravens in free agency after a fax foul-up, and Von Miller will begin serving a six-game suspension.

Together, they accounted for 29.5 of Denver's league-leading 52 sacks last season.

How the Broncos make up for their absences will go a long way in determining if Miller's Super Bowl guarantee he made back in February was bold or blather.
