Manning shows no rust from long layoff

By  | 

Mike Tomlin needed only two words to describe the guy who ripped apart the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense in the Mile High City.

"He's Peyton," the coach said with a shrug.

He's Peyton Manning -- and he's back.

Wearing orange for the first time since his playing days at the University of Tennessee, the former Indianapolis Colts star wasn't about to let a 20-month layoff for neck surgery wreck his opening night debut with the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Using the no-huddle, the four-time MVP led the Broncos on a trio of 80-yard touchdown drives and kept Ben Roethlisberger's troops guessing until the final whistle in a 31-19 victory.
