Andrew Luck vs. Peyton Manning was the story all week, but most importantly was how the young quarterback didn’t let the spectacle overshadow his on-field play. Luck was composed in the pocket, made his reads and did exactly what the Colts needed to ensure a home victory. Luck spread the ball around without making any one player a focal point, which would have been easy to do when he was under pressure to prove he was up to match the legend he replaced.
Manning was great as always, but he was let down by his supporting cast. Penalties extended drives and put the Broncos in a difficult position. The offense and defense helped contribute to over 100 penalty yards in Denver’s first loss of the season, which was too much to overcome with three turnovers. It’s shortsighted to see these as major issues, especially with how well the Broncos have played in 2013 — it was just an undisciplined game at the worst possible time.
