Colt Blooded: Peyton Manning Back in the Saddle

Todd Washburn@TheToddWashburnContributor IDecember 19, 2010

To those of you who were down on Peyton Manning, how could you?  As Peyton was throwing 11 interceptions on the season, the home crowd was about ready to give up on the elite NFL quarterback. 

Manning threw for two touchdowns and zero interceptions on the day at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Sunday, leading his team to a 34-24 victory and helping them re-emerge in the playoff picture in the AFC South.  The Colts are now tied with Jacksonville at 8-6. 

He had some help at the end, however, as Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee was tasked with an onside kick that was snagged by Tyjuan Hagler for 41 yards to put the Jaguars away. 

Manning was 29-of-39 for 229 yards on the day.  Not his best performance, but he got the job done.
