Peyton Manning Looks Human As Denver Broncos Suffer Devastating Loss
Peyton Manning did not look like himself on this night. The Denver Broncos built up a huge 24-0 lead on the New England Patriots thanks to their running game led by over 200 rushing yards by Knowshon Moreno and turnovers by the defense.
That lead evaporated rather quickly. By the start of the fourth quarter, the Patriots and Tom Brady had already scored 28 unanswered points as they took a four-point lead. For as good as Brady was in this one, Manning was equally inept.
The cold weather and brutal wind conditions really seemed to bother the veteran quarterback. He was missing on a lot of his throws and made a few bone-headed mistakes that led to turnovers and enabled the Pats to get back in the ball game.
Brady once again bested Manning as he now takes a commanding 10-4 head to head lead in their match ups. It was the Patriots who were full of sloppy plays and undisciplined mistakes at the start.
However, in the second half and overtime the Broncos equaled the Pats ineptitude. The dagger was a botched punt return in overtime in which Tony Carter could not get out of the way. This lead to a chip shot field goal that sealed it.
This victory keeps home field in play for the Pats. The Broncos could have essentially sealed that up with a win on this evening. It wasn’t to be. Manning wasn’t himself, and the Broncos defense was exposed for what it was in the crucial points of the football game.
The real question is will bad weather haunt Manning further? Something certainly worth monitoring as the days and months get colder as we move closer to January football.
