Any questions about Peyton Manning‘s health or or arm strength rust were answered in the Denver Broncos‘ 2012 season opener on Sunday night.

The Broncos have nothing to worry about when it comes to Peyton Manning at quarterback.

Manning was surgical against the Pittsburgh Steelers. His first NFL action in 610 days saw him hit Demaryius Thomas and Jacob Tamme for touchdowns of 71 yards and one yard respectively. He scored more points in one minute in the third quarter than Ben Roethlisberger achieved in nearly a full quarter on two drives. Manning fininshed 19 of 26 for 253 yards, no interceptions, and a 129.2 passer rating as the Broncos went on to roll over the Steelers 31-19 in Week One 2012 NFL action.
