Thank you Peyton!

Thank you Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos!   They defeated Tampa Bay 31 – 23 and clinched the AFC West Division.  Peyton threw for 3 touchdowns with one interception and amassed 242 yards passing in the victory.  Moreover, this means the Atlanta Falcons are assured of winning the NFC South!  Thank you Peyton and the Denver Broncos!   Peyton will be back in action this Thursday against the Oakland Raiders.

The Pittsburgh Steelers led by backup QB Charlie Batch denied the Ravens the opportunity to clinch their division, as the Ravens lost to to the Steelers, 23 -20.  I know the Steelers are looking forward to Big Ben getting healthy and returning.  Not to diminish the effort put forth by Batch and the Steelers.
