For the players who have a locker at Dove Valley for John Fox and his coaching staff for John Elway and his front office here's hoping they don't suffer from insecurity. This is not so much about the Denver Broncos. This is about Peyton Manning. It was Manning's quarterback brilliance that beat the Dallas Cowboys 51-48 in a Texas-style shootout here Sunday before a crowd of — get this — 92758 at the dazzling sports castle that is AT&T Stadium. And nothing but Manning. Denver's defense provided little challenge to the twirling dervish pinpoint passer that was Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. So bad were the Broncos on defense Manning was behind two touchdowns before he got a chance to finish his first drive. The Broncos were so bad early they had but one chance to avoid their first loss. So what else is new? From 14 points down Manning on his next five possessions threw four touchdown passes and ran in for another score on a perfectly executed hidden-ball keeper to put the Broncos up 15 points a few minutes into the second half. In a wild back-and-forth second half Matt Prater's 28-yard field goal provided the winning points as the clock ran out. Linebacker Danny Trevathan set up the winning score with an interception at the Cowboys' 24. During the week leading up to the game Cowboys veteran linebacker Ernie Sims was quoted as saying he was sick of hearing about Manning. Hey Ernie: Peyton Manning Peyton Manning Peyton Manning. The Broncos themselves better get used to hearing how Manning is single-handedly carrying them. Sure somebody has to block for him and catch his passes. And Manning can't play defense even if he did show he can run around left end. But the Broncos are 5-0 primarily because Manning started his season with 20 touchdown passes and zero interceptions. He threw his first pick of the season into the Cowboy stadium glare with seconds left
