High-octane Denver Broncos can grind it out, too

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- After hurrying Denver's quick-strike, high-octane offense through a record-shattering regular season, Peyton Manning has turned the Broncos into a slow-grinding, clock-eating machine in the playoffs.

Denver's three most time-consuming drives of the season have all come in the last two weeks, helping to render opposing passers short-tempered sideline spectators.

In dispatching the San Diego Chargers and the New England Patriots, Manning dinked and dunked his way downfield.

Denver's downshift, some of it by design, some due to circumstance, has thrown a new wrinkle into an already formidable test that Seattle's stingy defense will have to prepare for in the Super Bowl.
