Peyton Manning played like the Peyton Manning who we all saw get 4 NFL MVP’s in his great Career, Manning brought his new team the Denver Broncos back to seal the deal with a win in the regular season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Mile High Stadium in front of the Denver Broncos home crowd. Manning completed 19 of the 26 passes he threw for 253 yards and 2 touchdowns. If there was any question as to whether or not Peyton Manning could take a hit and keep on playing, you could put those to rest, Manning was sacked a couple of times and he popped right back up and continued to pick the Pittsburgh Steelers apart.
Oh, you wondered about the arm strength Manning would have too right? Well you can put those worries away too, Manning completed passes across his body to the side line of the field and his arm looked plenty strong enough to compete at a high level in the NFL. Anther thing Manning did well against the Pittsburgh Steelers was not throwing any interceptions. Manning looked great out there barking out orders to the Denver Broncos offense, it was great seeing the field general out where he belongs on the Football Field.
Now lets forget the job the Broncos defense did against the Steelers either. The Broncos defense was able to keep the pressure on Big Ben all night long, they sacked Roethlisburger 5 times and rushed his passes all night long. The Broncos would come back in the 4th quarter led by Peyton Manning and great defensive play. The Broncos are now 1-0 and on their way this season. If Manning can continue to play the way he did in the Steelers game, the Broncos are going to be a tough team this season.
Hey, tell us what you think about the job Manning did last night, just leave your comments below….
