DENVER -- Von Miller tormented the quarterback. Aqib Talib had a pick-six .Just another Sunday for the Broncos, and after two games, the Denver defense is batting away doubts about whether it could lead the way to a Super Bowl repeat.The Broncos stifled another contender: This time, it was Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts taking a 34-20 beating.Im pretty sure we woke (critics) up today, said Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, alluding to those who didnt think the Broncos would be a repeat threat without Peyton Manning, Malik Jackson and a few others who left after last seasons title.With 1:54 remaining and facing fourth-and-1 at the Indy 17, coach Gary Kubiak elected to kick a field goal to extend the lead to 26-20 rather than try to close out the game with a first down. A risky proposition giving the ball back to Luck, who has picked apart the Broncos (2-0) in recent meetings.Not so risky this time. On Lucks first play, Miller got the sack and strip, and Shane Ray returned the fumble 15 yards for a game-sealing TD as the Colts dropped to 0-2.If the game is on the line on defense, you can almost guarantee were going to finish the game and win it for us, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. Weve been in that situation all year last year. Coming into this year, same thing.Something were accustomed to, were used to and we like winning on defense.The Broncos rode that defense all the way to a championship a season ago. They think theyre even better at this point, too, than when they went on to led the league in yards per game (283.1).We didnt shut down Andrew Luck at this time last year, Harris said.They held Luck to 197 yards passing and came up with the game-changer when Talib stepped in front of Lucks pass early in the fourth quarter and returned it 46 yards for a score. It was the ninth pick-six of Talibs career.Then theres Miller, who was constantly in the backfield harassing Luck, much like he did last week with Cam Newton on their way to a 21-20 win over Carolina.How many sacks did Von have? Five? Marshall asked.Only three, actually . But it probably felt like more. After one, Luck said about the only thing he could say to Miller: good sack.This is what I am supposed to do. Thats what I do. Thats why I dance, Miller said. Thats what I live for.What else we learned from the Colts-Broncos game:BUTLER ALMOST DID IT: Cornerback Darius Butler picked off a pass by Trevor Siemian and had a clear path for a TD. All of a sudden, he dropped to the turf with a hamstring injury after a 19-yard return. His afternoon was done. Ive never seen anything like it, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. I probably (thought) the same thing that was going through everyone elses head: `Its a pick-six. No one is going to catch him.ROCKY START: For a third straight season, the Colts start the year 0-2. They rebounded to make the postseason in 2014.There is only one level of frustration with losing, and that is, wanting to win, Luck said.AILING: Broncos linebacker DeMarcus Ware broke his right forearm early in the third quarter. Kubiak said the team will see Monday morning about the extent of the injury and whether we think its something he can play with or something that has to be fixed.IMPRESSIVE SIEMIAN: Siemian completed 22 of 33 passes for 266 and a pick. He also became the fourth Broncos QBs drafted by the team to win his opening two starts. (The others: Marlin Briscoe, Craig Penrose and Brock Osweiler.) I dont think you are ever going to be perfect, Siemian said. But its encouraging were doing some good things.WRITE THAT CHECK: Safety Darian Stewart was called for a roughing penalty when he hit Luck in the head as the quarterback slid late in the game. Thats just me playing ball, Stewart said. I just hope Im not fined. Stewart was docked $18,231 by the league for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Newton in the opener.TAKING A KNEE: Linebacker Brandon Marshall took a knee again Sunday for the national anthem, but isnt sure if he will do so again next weekend. When the time is to stand, then Ill stand, he said. Marshall has received plenty of support and criticism over his decision to join San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players in a plea for social change.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Ronnie Lott Super Bowl Jersey . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. Terrell Owens Super Bowl Jersey . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. http://www.authenticsf49erspro.com/Ahkello-witherspoon-49ers-jersey/ . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. Matt Breida Super Bowl Jersey . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. Jimmy Garoppolo Super Bowl Jersey . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Members of the Band Perry say theyre taking precautions as they prepare to travel to Brazil for the Summer Olympics, due to the concerns about the Zika virus.The sibling groups pop-influenced song Live Forever was chosen as Team USAs official song, and theyre heading to Rio de Janeiro to perform on television and also for the athletes. The opening ceremony will be held Friday.Neil Perry said he isnt worried, but said his brother Reid and sister Kimberly were nervous about the trip. Brazil has had an outbreak of the mosquito-transmitted Zika, which has been linked to brain-related birth defects, but health officials say the risk is low. Several athletes and journalists have decided not to attend the Olympics because of the health risk.I think its definitely been hyped, so we are going to take some precautions and perform in Saran Wrap, Kimberly Perry joked. So we should be good. Maybe bee keeper outfits.The Perry siblings will debut a new song, Comeback Kid, on the Today show while in Rio, their first single from their new joint venture with Universal Music Group and Interscope Records after leaving Big Machine Label Group last year.The band, which has had crossover success with the mulltiplatinum hit If I Die Young, called the move an important transition.ddddddddddddFor us, weve always been an international band and weve always had aspirations for international success, said Reid Perry. To be able to be with UMG and Interscope, that just opens a whole lot of opportunities for the three of us that we really wanted to do.The band had been working with producers like RedOne and Diplo on an album that was scheduled to come out last November. Most of that album was ultimately scrapped as they moved to a new record deal. They said they hope to release a new album by the end of this year, with a coinciding tour to start next year.Kimberly Perry, who has sported blond curly locks since the bands debut in 2010, revealed her new brunette hair color to match her brothers brown locks. Its been an adjustment for her husband, baseball player J.P. Arencibia.Sometimes I dont recognize myself still, Perry said. My husband says hes still getting used to it. He likes it, but he just likes blond better.--Online:www.thefansperry.com--Follow Kristin M. Hall at twitter.com/kmhall ' ' '
