There have been whispers for the past month that something is not right with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Well, with the Broncos eliminated from the playoffs after a 24-13 loss to the Colts on Sunday, there’s no reason to speak softly anymore.

It might explain Manning’s subpar performance in his record ninth one-and-done in the playoffs. No other QB has had more than four since 1966.
