FILE - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (18) walks off the field after an NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts in Indianapolis, in this Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013, in Indianapolis. The Colts won 39-33. After five straight victories to open the season with his new team, the Broncos, Manning was on his way to his record fifth MVP award while setting all sorts of league passing marks. The matchup with the Colts in Indianapolis was ballyhooed like the second coming, but despite Manning's brilliance _ three touchdown passes, 386 yards in the air _ his replacement, Andrew Luck, got the win 39-33. “I am kind of relieved in some ways that this game is over,” he said at the end of a long night.
