04:22 PM ET 05.30 | The offense is moving faster at organized team activities than it did last year. So are Peyton Manning's passes. ???We worked out at Duke in March or April and I definitely felt like he had more zip on the ball," wide receiver Eric Decker said. "I think he???s come back stronger." Last year, "zip" was tossed around among pundits more often than footballs during Denver's practices. "Does Manning still have the same zip on his passes?" ??? "Can he still throw with zip?" ??? Over and over again, it came up. This year, not so much. Some of that is attributable to being more comfortable with his targets, but much of it is Manning himself.

Hey, it wasn't Rahim Moore who turned the ball over 3 times (2 INTs and a fumble), including the interception which led to the Ravens' game-winning field goal.

Let's see if he has any zip left on his passes come playoff time.

Remember the Raven's Kicker that 'missed' that chip shot ,too go into OT?

Who was that? as then Ravens fired him before the new season started.

Was it just fate?
