Peyton Manning's Monday Night Comeback, Version 2.0: Down 24 at Half to 35-24 Denver Win

The greatest Monday Night comeback ever came back in 2003, with Jon Gruden looking on from the sidelines in Tampa Bay, as Manning brought the Colts back from 21 points down in the fourth quarter.

Now, the Broncos just became the sixth team since World War II, and the first since the Buffalo Bills against the Oilers in January of 1993, to win a game when trailing by 24 or more at the half. Philip Rivers had four five turnovers, including a fumble return for touchdown and an interception return for touchdown to aid the comeback.

Denver also stopped fumbling the ball on special teams and taking it out of Manning’s hands, and stopped tripping on sure touchdowns. Instead, it was Manning surgically carving the Chargers defense up in the second half. Manning completed 80% of his passes (24 of 30) for 309 yards and 3 second half touchdown passes.
