Well that second quarter got out of a hand quickly. Peyton Manning looked rattled and unfocused, which led halftime not getting here soon enough for any of us. Andrew Luck and the Colts marched right down the field to put up 26 points in the first half. Halftime is needed for the Broncos to get re-focused on the game and for Manning to get back into his usual serene zen.

The Broncos absolutely have to open the second half with a touchdown drive. They need to deflate the sail a little bit from the other team and regain some momentum that up this point has been all Colts.

I would beat up on the defense, but thus far they have been given no favors from the offense or special teams in this battle. They are tired and beat up already. A nice long touchdown drive from Peyton to begin the third quarter is what needs to happen to get the second wind over on the defensive side of the ball.
