Peyton Manning Steps Into Reserve Role
He’s back. Sort of. The 18-year-veteran will suit up, but Denver coach Gary Kubiak said he’s sticking with Brock Osweiler as his starting quarterback for Sunday’s regular season finale. It’s the first time in the five-time MVP’s professional career that he isn’t starting. But there’s no denying Brock’s superior stats: The 25-year-old prospect is 4-2 since stepping in, including an overtime victory over the Patriots. If the Broncos beat the Chargers, they’ll secure a first week bye and have a shot at securing home-field advantage.
