Playoffs again prove to be kryptonite for Peyton Manning as he looked off from the very start of the 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Manning went 26 for 46 for 211 yards and only one touchdown while on the other side of the ball Andrew Luck was able to shake off two interceptions and go 27 for 43 for 265 yards and two touchdowns.

The Colts make themselves the only road team to win during the divisional weekend and they’ll head to New England next weekend for the AFC Championship Game. There certainly will be an interesting offseason ahead for the Denver Broncos as Peyton Manning could easily hang it up and John Fox will have to figure out how to keep together the rest of the team.
