For the first time in a very long time while watching a Denver game, I felt throughout the entire game that the Broncos were under control, the game was theirs to win, and they had a sense of urgency about them. I just knew they would come out with a victory.
I wasn’t sitting there wondering if Manning would produce some kind of miracle in the last few seconds after several three-and-outs as I did last year when Tim Tebow was on the field. I was calm and relaxed thinking Manning was about to produce another 12-play, 80-yard drive that seemed effortless while leading a no huddle offense.
Manning produced several of these kinds of drives with the help of his fellow offensive teammates and some big plays from their bend-but-don’t-break defense.
Like I said before, it has been a long time since a Broncos game went as smoothly as this one did. I know there were times when I thought the defense needed to make a play, but they made one when they needed it the most.
I just enjoyed watching a team who had an urgency to win, knew they were going to, and that’s exactly what they did. It’s been a long time and now it is here.
I can’t wait for next Monday night when the Broncos have another tough game versus the Atlanta Falcons.
