Peyton Manning is Back, Takes Over as Broncos QB vs. Chargers

Peyton Manning regain starting job

Peyton Manning began week 17 as the back-up to Brock Osweiler, but with his team trailing the San Diego Chargers in the second half after five turnovers (three of them belonging to Osweiler), he was called upon to take over under center and proceeded to lead his team 80 yards down the field for a go-ahead touchdown on his very first series.

The Broncos now lead the Chargers, 14-13, with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs on the line.

Peyton Manning will likely remain the starter for the rest of the game, and with a good showing he should retain the starting job for Denver’s first playoff game.
