It took only 17 minutes for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos to erase what was a comfortable 24 – 0 lead at halftime against the San Diego Chargers. If there was any question why Peyton Manning will go down as one of the greatest NFL players to ever play, last night was a prime example, as he orchestrated a comeback that only few Quarterbacks have been able to do against any team, leading his team to a 35 – 24 victory. One of the many aspects about Peyton Manning that sets him apart from most Quarterbacks, is his uncanny ability to read the opposing team’s defense and call audibles before his snaps. In many occasions, Peyton’s decision to change the play resulting in confusion by the Chargers defense, and a positive outcome for the Broncos offense; most notably on the touchdown pass to Broncos Receiver Brandon Stokley in the 4th quarter. In addition to Peyton’s brilliant play, the Broncos defense redeemed themselves in the second half of the game, with 4 interceptions on Chargers Quarterback Philip Rivers; as well as a forced fumble resulting in a defensive touchdown. Of all things the greatest lesson to be learned after watching this game is that no lead is safe against Peyton Manning, it was a lesson that Tom Brady found out in week 5, and one that Philip Rivers soon will not forget after tonight’s game.
