Peyton Manning said “shhh” to all of his critics who are saying that his career is finished.
“Washed up” may be a frequent phrase you hear when someone refers to Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. The Broncos quarterback had been struggling against the Cleveland Browns with two interceptions and fanned the flames for criticism. The Broncos looked like they were in danger of being upset as they trailed, 20-16. However, Manning immediately hushed his critics by throwing a flawless touchdown pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for 75 yards.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback put the Broncos in a hole by throwing a pick-six to Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby, but he immediately shook that off and came through with a perfect touchdown pass. Manning has thrown for 241 yards and one touchdown pass with two interceptions against the Browns, and the Broncos will improve to 6-0 if they can come away with a narrow win.
Despite achieving ugly wins, the Broncos remain one of the top teams in the NFL and will continue to be if they can maintain an undefeated record. Their defense has stepped up big, and it continued to do so with cornerback Aqib Talib returning an interception for a touchdown in the second quarter.
It remains to be seen if the Broncos can stay undefeated today and after their next game since they will have to take on the Green Bay Packers, who have a perfect record. Luckily, they will have a bye week to prepare for one of their toughest games of the season.
