CHICAGO -- When the Denver Broncos took the field in their preseason opener against the Chicago Bears, they feasted with sharpened knives. 

The 22 to 0 victory followed offensive, defensive and special teams plays that deserved video highlights, and the NFL delighted. 

In total, the Broncos racked up 7 sacks on Bears quarterbacks, drawing questions about how heavily the broncos were pressuring in preseason games.

Despite those questions, the Broncos didn't let up. Special teams racked up a reel-worthy blocked punt, leading to another score. 

But let's not forget the Broncos offense, which started the game off on the right note. A pass from Mark Sanchez sailed through the air, connecting with Demaryius Thomas for six points.
