Apparently, Peyton Manning's terrific performance in his Denver Broncos’ debut didn’t shock many folks.
Our AFC West poll this week asked readers if they were surprised by Manning’s strong performance in a 31-19 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday night. In his first game in 19 months, Manning looked terrific as he threw for 253 yards and he led Denver on a fourth-quarter comeback win.
Apparently that performance was expected. As of 6 p.m. ET Wednesday, 74 percent of the voters said they were not surprised by Manning’s performance, while 26 percent voted that they were surprised.
I tend to agree with the majority on this one. Manning may have been a bit more smooth than I expected (he looked like he never left), but I did expected him to have a solid performance. But this was beyond solid. Thanks to everyone who played along.
