With the win, the Broncos clinched their second consecutive AFC West championship. The Broncos used three touchdowns in a five-minute span to turn a 10-7 deficit into a 28-10 lead. Peyton Manning hitDemaryius Thomas for an 8-yard scoring strike to regain the lead for the Broncos at the 9:27 mark in the quarter. Less than five minutes later, Manning connected with Thomas again, this time on a 10-yard slant pattern to make it a two-score game.

A little salsa, a little sour cream, maybe some guacamole, they're not too bad at all.

As am I. I thought he would have lasted maybe 2 - 3 games before being knocked out for the season. Elway looks like a genius now for making this trade.

Needs to go deep in the play offs to really seal the deal

Can you imagine if the Colts were to knock them out in the first round?

And they say that the AFC East is a crappy division. Holy cow!

They only say it because it's true Rex

That would be funny. Luck actually surprises me more than Manning. The way he can lead comebacks, like yesterday against the Lions is something for a rookie.

Glad the Colts beat the Lions, though. The Thug Boys deserve their lousy record.

Great story. Be awesome if they somehow matched up against the Colts.

Manning is playing really well, but I'd like to see them beat a quality team before he's annointed. The next month will tell the tale.

He's got a few more good years left in that arm of his.

But what about his neck? Still think the smart thing for he and his family would be to retire.
