Player of the Game: Peyton Manning

It's all Broncos heading into halftime thanks to a long bomb by Peyton Manning, a pick-six and a Willis McGahee touchdown rumble. But when the Texans score 10 points in the fourth quarter to trail by only 8, it looks like momentum has shifted, especially when Houston's last-minute drive brings it to within striking distance of sending the game into overtime. Luckily for the Broncos, the defense does its job, keeping the Texans out of the end zone while holding on for the 31-23 victory.
