With the Seahawks already having played and winning on Thursday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals, the biggest news this Sunday was Peyton Manning leading his new team, the Denver Broncos, into the “house that Manning built” when he was with the Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts owner, Jim Irsay, had already revealed that the franchise would honor Manning with a tribute before the game. With Peyton warming up on the field and glancing over at the video playing on the giant screen, the crowd cheered during every second.
Once the video ended, Manning removed his helmet and soaked it all in.
Manning played well the entire game but with his team trailing at halftime, Peyton did what he does best. The Broncos began a comeback from a 33-17 deficit that ultimately fell a few plays short.
The Colts won this one 39-33 thanks to Andrew Luck’s three TD passes and one score rushing.
Manning threw for 386 yards, 3 TD’s and 1 INT.
