Live discussion: Peyton Manning works his magic again

October 16, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

Our special edition of "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam" was held Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., and the big topic was the Denver Broncos' amazing comeback Monday night against the San Diego Chargers.

Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes in the second half and Tony Carter and Chris Harris scored off turnovers by Philip Rivers as the Broncos overcame a 24-0 halftime deficit to stun the Chargers, 35-24.

Manning was an amazing 13 of 14 for 167 yards in the second half for the Broncos (3-3) who tied the Chargers (3-3) atop the AFC West.

It tied for the fourth-greatest regular-season comeback in NFL history.

Manning had been 1-5 in his last six games against San Diego, all while with Indianapolis.

Rivers was intercepted four times — three in the fourth quarter — and lost two fumbles. A week earlier, the Chargers blew a 10-point lead in the third quarter in a 31-24 loss at New Orleans.

As Farmer pointed out during the chat, "Peyton Manning followed the Peyton Manning script. His 47th comeback victory. And the Chargers followed the Chargers' script, going into a tailspin and losing."

You can watch the entire show above. The next edition of "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam" will be Friday at 11:30 a.m.
