Over the course of about two weeks or so, there were multiple favorites that emerged to land Peyton Manning. The Dolphins, Cardinals and 49ers were all at one point considered logical landing points for the All-Pro quarterback. The Titans got into it as well, and the Jets were even rumored to have interest. When it was all said and done, though, it was John Elway and the Denver Broncos who emerged as the winners the sweepstakes for Manning, as No. 18 is headed to Mile High and Tim Tebow is headed elsewhere.
