Peyton Manning can still ball. Despite the long layoff between his last two starts—it'd been 611 days since he last started an NFL game prior to his start against the Pittsburgh Steelers last night—he still threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 31-19 win over the Steelers during his first official game with the Denver Broncos. And, he managed to make history, too.
In the third quarter, after the Steelers had put together two huge drives that kept Manning off the field for much of the second and third quarters, Eli's older brother threw a 71-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas to record the 400th touchdown toss of his career.
Kudos to Manning on the accomplishment. And, to fans of the Broncos, all we can say is: Tim who?! Something tells us you guys are going to be just fine this season with this guy running the team.
