The Denver Broncos stunned the crowd during the NFL team's match against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Arrowhead Stadium, which saw Peyton Manning making a comeback and effective shutting critics who initially poked fun of his health and age. The match, which was held on Thursday (September 17) at 8:25 pm ET, witnessed the Denver Broncos emerge victorious over the Kansas City Chiefs with a final score of 31 - 24. The recently concluded game marked the seventh time the Denver Broncos crushed their AFC West opponents.
"He's a hell of a quarterback," shared Denver Broncos star Brandon Marshall, referring to NFL star Peyton Manning, according to ESPN. The linebacker added, "I mean, he has it, I don't know what people are thinking about him or saying about him. But he is a great quarterback, a great quarterback and with him every guy in this room thinks we can win it all."
Earlier this week, Marshall also went against the critics of Peyton Manning who claimed that the once glorious arm of the Denver Broncos quarterback is no more. He said in the interview with Marc Sessler of the NFL Network at the time, "We all think it's blasphemy, because Peyton, he still has it." Marshall went on to share, "You know, he has what it takes. I think it's just a matter of time because it's a new offense. It's the beginning of the season. Just the chemistry with the O-line and the receivers, everybody gotta (sic) get in sync. I definitely think it's going to turn around. I have no issues, or no worries about anything."
In an earlier report from the NFL Network, it was disclosed that Peyton Manning was included in the list of injured players in the Denver Broncos roster - an information that actually caught the quarterback by surprise. The Sunday game of the Denver Broncos in Week 1 of the NFL regular season had the team listing Peyton Manning to have incurred a back injury. However, it appears that the second week of the NFL season gave Peyton Manning the chance to slam reports claiming that he is no longer the same quarterback who carried the Denver Broncos to greatness in the past.
While Peyton Manning undoubtedly stunned the crowd during the match against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Denver Broncos look to cornerback Bradley Roby as the NFL star who sealed the deal for them. With a hard-earned win against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Denver Broncos now continue their journey in the NFL season with a 2 - 0 record. It remains to be seen if Peyton Manning manages to sustain this level of energy and aggression until the end of the NFL season - an end that might see the Denver Broncos star go face to face with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
