The Denver Broncos are fighting to not only get Peyton Manning back to the Super Bowl for a third time, but to return the franchise to the Super Bowl for the first time since John Elway led them there in 1998. Elway brought in Manning to lead the team and Manning lobbied for a few of his Colts players to follow him.

One of those guys was tight end Jacob Tamme, who hasn’t developed into one of Manning’s high profile targets, but is operating much in the same way he did with the Colts. Tamme has been open when Manning needs him open, and on Sunday he just so happened to be open in the endzone.

The touchdown gave the Broncos a 10-0 lead, but before the champagne bottles start popping, let’s not forget how the Broncos took a large lead into halftime against the Patriots once already this season, and that game came out very poorly for Denver.
