AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Texans


New Broncos QB Joe Flacco explained that his familiarity with the team’s offense has made the transition easy for him. 

“I think terminology-wise, I’m familiar with a lot,” Flacco said, via “That’s kind of made the transition easy. I think the play-pass stuff, there is a lot of stuff that I’m familiar with. I think some of the drop-back game’s a little different, but, overall, I would say there is a pretty good amount of familiarity with it.
