It just wouldn't be right if Peyton Manning didn't get the type of tremendous applause he got before tonight's game against the Colts. This was his first time playing in the stadium since his emotional departure from Indianapolis, and the crowd gave him the reception he deserved. Arguably the most emotional prelude to an ass-kicking (the Colts actually won 39-33) homecoming game you'll ever see.

Manning finished his career with the Colts with four NFL MVPs, two Super Bowl appearances with a win in Super Bowl XLI (2007 against the Bears), and a 141-67 record.
