Peyton Manning is looking like his old self with 272 yards on 25-of-33 passing with two touchdowns and two picks. The TDs were to Joel Dreessen and Eric Decker.
Was Peyton actually hurt this offseason or was he just filming commercials? He looks fantastic and he is clearly getting strong as the season progresses. Peyton went in the fifth or sixth rounds in a lot of leagues and he was off the board before top-15 ADPer Matt Stafford in some mid-season mock drafts this week.
Peyton's weapons have really made some strides this year with Demaryius Thomas maintaining as a top-10 receiver both in fantasy and reality. Eric Decker has been a Welker-like asset with his short routes and as a safety valve. Of course, it helps to only have Peyton sacked 10 times coming in today. Peyton has yet to be hit by the Bengals in the fourth quarter and the interceptions were just bad balls.
