Denver Records its First Loss...Against the Colts...

Denver traveled to Indianapolis for the Sunday Night game on October 20. The game was the most buzzed about game of the week because it was Peyton Manning's first homecoming after being let go from the Colts in 2012. Earlier in the week the Colt's owner, Jim Irsay made comments to the USA Today stating that he had, "no regrets" releasing Manning because he only lead the team to 1 Superbowl victory.

His comment lead to a media circus causing the game against Indy to be the biggest of the season so far. Bronco's fans went in with no doubt their undefeated season would continue when Peyton Manning completing a first drive touchdown, but that quickly dwindled when Colts quarterback Andrew Luck came out to prove a point with 121 rushing yards and 213 passing yards to defeat the Bronco's 39-33.

The Bronco's looked off their game all night, and nearly shooting themselves in the foot with 12 penalties for 103 yards, 3 turnovers, and completing only 5-16 first downs. The Bronco's tried to come back with 2 back to back touchdowns late in the fourth quarter, but couldn't catch their groove when they fumbled at the 10 yard line, and Manning throwing an interception with 2 minutes left in the fourth.

We all hope the Bronco's can recoup from the loss and come back strong next week against the Redskins in Washington.
