Horse Tracks: Relive Peyton Manning and the Broncos comeback against the Chargers

Good Morning Broncos Country!

Denver Broncos v San Diego Chargers

It is July and we are still less than two weeks away from the official start of the Broncos 2018 Training Camp so let us continue looking back at the past.

It’s 2012, the Broncos are 2-3, and quarterback Peyton Manning is still working himself back to 100%. The Broncos find themselves on Monday Night Football against their division rival San Diego Chargers and are trying to avoid going 2-4. Well, it didn’t start well for the Broncos.

There were multiple muffed returns by the Broncos returners, a missed audible by wide receiver Matthew Willis, and a 24-0 deficit at halftime.


Then the magic happened. Relive that magical comeback with the rest of us.
