Denver Broncos Doomed If Peyton Manning Doesn’t Play Well
The Denver Broncos tend to live on the edge come playoff time. That did not change last night. A game that looked like a snoozer for the Broncos got interesting as Phillip Rivers rallied his team down 24-7 to make it a one possession ball game.
Peyton Manning and the offense sealed the game up late with a couple crucial third down conversions. The fact is the game should have never gotten to that point. I am sure a lot of Broncos fans were having flash backs to last year’s divisional round when they blew a lead against the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
Rivers found a weakness and preyed on it. That weakness was Quentin Jammer. He was filling in for the injured Chris Harris Jr. and was thoroughly exposed. Bad news Broncos fans. Word has come down that Harris is out for the rest of the year with a torn ACL.
With Tom Brady and the New England Patriots coming to town, the Broncos are going to have to shake up their secondary minus one of their starting corners. Not good. This Broncos squad is totally reliant on Manning being brilliant week in and week out.
The defense has been a sieve more often than not this season, and they don’t have a dominant running game to fall back on like the other teams remaining in the tournament. No. 18 better continue to be great throughout these playoffs. If he isn’t the Broncos are in a world of trouble.

You won’t believe your eyes when looking at this stat on Jason McCourty
