Are you allowed to get really excited after a loss? Peyton Freakin' Manning was on fire as the Denver Broncos manhandled the stout 49ers defense during the first half of Sunday's preseason game.

The Denver Broncos had their second preseason game of the year and were able to go into halftime against the Seattle Seahawks with a slight lead. The second half was not as productive as the Broncos eventually lost 30 to 10. Saying all that, there is still a lot to be excited about in the Mile High City. The starters on offense and defense look strong as the regular season nears.
