Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning received a warm welcome on Sunday night as he returned to Indianapolis to play the Colts for the first time since he left the team as a free agent after the 2011 season.
The Colts put together a video highlight reel as a tribute to Manning which played as he began warming up. At the end of the video, the message "Thanks Peyton" was displayed with a blue number 18 in the background. At that point, Manning took off his helmet and humbly accepted the gratitude from the Colts fans. With a smile rarely seen from Manning on the football field, you could tell he was truly moved by the gesture.

The Broncos will be fine. It was just an off game for their entire team, but since the media predicted a slaughter because of the Jim Irsay comments, people are taking the opportunity to have a little fun at the Broncos expense.
Case in point.
