The Colts and Broncos exchanging three-and-outs did not fit the script.

Thankfully, Peyton Manning caught up.

Manning just hit his stride, and Eric Decker for a a 39-yard gain and a 17-yard touchdown to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead.

It didn’t take long (46 seconds), after a deliberate start to the game. The Colts are clearly trying to shorten things, as Andrew Luck has one completion after two series.
