CINCINNATI -- The Broncos defense was back in force, led by Super Bowl MVP Von Miller.The offense has gifted receivers with Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. C.J. Anderson was there to run the ball.Could they even come close to replacing Peyton Manning? That was Denvers overriding question heading into the season. In his first road game, Trevor Siemian answered emphatically and impressively.Siemian had the best game by a Broncos quarterback in two years -- since Manning was running the show -- as Denver stayed unbeaten with a 29-17 win over the Bengals on Sunday. He threw four touchdown passes -- Manning was the last Bronco to do that -- and passed for 312 yards.Best of all, he was nearly perfect under the most intense pressure, going completing 11 of 12 passes while leading Denver (3-0) to a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.Yeah, call it Manning-esque.Obviously going in, nobody really knew about him, said Sanders, who caught the first two touchdowns. Now everybodys starting to talk about him.On a team that aspires to another Super Bowl season, Siemian and his 132.1 passer rating on Sunday sure looked like a perfect fit as the missing piece.Thats what weve been waiting for, man, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. Thats a huge step forward for our team to do that on the road against a playoff team.For the Bengals (1-2), it was another ominous afternoon. The defending AFC North champions are out of sync on both offense and defense. Theyre 1-2 for the first time in five years. Theyre already two games off the pace in their division.We still have a lot of stuff to clean up, receiver A.J. Green said. Were still trying to find ourselves.Some takeaways from the Broncos win:SIEMIANS IMPRESSIVE START: Siemian, a seventh-round pick last season, is the seventh Broncos quarterback to win his first three starts -- Brock Osweiler also did it last season. The club record is a 6-0 start, by Craig Morton in 1977 and Kyle Orton in 2009. Coach Gary Kubiak showed faith in Siemian by letting him air it out when the Bengals clamped down on Denvers running game. He finished 23 of 35, including touchdowns of 41 and 55 yards.Honestly, theres nothing to tell Trevor, Sanders said. I know hes a young quarterback, but he doesnt act like it. Hes always confident and collected.Hes the one who wants to throw the ball. Hes the one who wants to deliver that pass. Kubiak put a lot of faith in him, and he delivered.OH THAT DENVER D: Once Siemian led them to the lead, the Broncos took care of Andy Dalton, sacking him twice in the fourth quarter. Dalton was 21 of 31 overall for 206 yards, although 92 of those yards came when the Broncos started allowing short completions to drain the clock.Once we get up, its sacks and interceptions time, Harris said. We feel that when we get up by two touchdowns, its over for that team.PICKING ON PACMAN: The Broncos went after Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones, having their receivers use double moves that worked for big plays . Emmanuel Sanders made two moves to spring past Jones for a 41-yard TD catch. With Jones was on the sideline with cramps, Demaryius Thomas put a double move on backup Chris Lewis-Harris for a clinching 55-yard TD catch.OUT-OF-BALANCE OFFENSE: The Bengals could barely run the ball in the first two games. They made that the point of emphasis and got a 50-yard run from Jeremy Hill on the opening drive. After that, Denver clamped down. Hill finished with 97 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but it wasnt nearly enough.A lot of stuff we wish we could have back, Hill said. We have a ways to go as far as the running game, and it starts with me.NOT-SO-SWEET HOME: The Bengals host the Dolphins on Thursday night, although the home field hasnt been much of an advantage for them lately. They lost a first-round playoff game to Pittsburgh at Paul Brown Stadium last season, and now their season opener. Cincinnati is only 6-4 in its past 10 home games.---Online: AP NFL website www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Taylor Rapp Jersey Large . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid.

I dont think its anything too serious. But he is sore. Hes day to day.Another issue for the Panthers is goalie Roberto Luongo, who has lost four games in a row. He has allowed 12 goals in those four losses.The Panthers say they are not concerned about Luongos play. But you have to wonder if the 37-year-old is starting to lose a bit off his proverbial fastball in his 18th NHL season.Florida, which won the Atlantic Division last season, is off to a poor start with a 5-6-1 record. They are last in the Atlantic, already 10 points behind the first-place Montreal Canadiens.The Lightning (7-4-1) have 15 points and are in second place in the Atlantic, six points behind Montreal.Tampa Bay has played the Panthers just once this season, defeating Florida 4-3 in a shootout.The Lightning are coming off a 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. Still, Tampa Bay is worried about its consistently slow starts.In 12 games, the Lightning has led just twice after one period. They have trailed six times and played to a scoreless draw on four occasions.The Lightning tends to turn the puck over far too often in opening periods, and that keeps them from getting out on that attack.Thats what happened in Saturdays first period as Tampa Bay trailed New Jersey 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes.Its an issue, Lightning coach Jon Cooper told the media. Theres no question.Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop (5-3-0) has been solid -- he had 37 saves against the Devils. But his goals-against average (3.01) is high for him. His GAA was 2.06 last season.Perhaps Luongo is not the only goalie with something to prove on Monday.Offensively, Tampa Bay has a deep and dangerous group of forwards, led by Steven Stamkos, who signed an eight-year contract extension in the offseason that will pay him $8.dddddddddddd5 million per season on average.Stamkos has seven goals and seven assists this season, and his 14 points are second on the team behind Nikita Kucherov (four goals, 11 assists, 15 points).Defenseman Victor Hedman, who also signed a big-money extension in the offseason -- eight years, $7.9 million per season, is the teams third-leading scorer. He has three goals and seven assists.For Florida, its top three scorers are all surprises: forwards Jon Marchessault (six goals, six assists), Vincent Trocheck (six goals, two assists) and Colton Sceviour (five goals, three assists).Marchessault and Sceviour werent even with the team last season, both signing low-money, two-year free-agent contracts on July 1.Some of the teams bigger names are injured and out long term (forwards Jonathan Huberdeau, Jussi Jokinen and Nick Bjugstad), out with a nagging injury (Jagr, possibly) or slumping (star center Aleksander Barkov has two goals and three assists).Luongo (3-5-0) hasnt been as sharp as normal, but his GAA isnt terrible at 2.53.What ails Luongo and the team overall is nothing that couldnt be greatly helped with a win on Monday night.In other news regarding the game:The Panthers waived defenseman Steven Kampfer and recalled defenseman Jakub Kindl, 29, from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Springfield Thunderbirds.Kampfer had been a healthy scratch for 11 of the Panthers 12 games this season.Kindl, a native of the Czech Republic, was the Detroit Red Wings first-round pick, No. 19 overall, in 2005. Last season, he had two assists in 19 games for the Panthers and two goals and four assists in 25 games for Detroit.The Lightning recalled forward Cory Conacher from AHL Syracuse. With forward Jonathan Drouin listed as day to day with an injury, Conachers presence provides insurance for Tampa Bay. ' ' '
