4. Denver Broncos, 3-3 (Bye)
Judging his spiral, Peyton's grip on the ball isn’t what it was, but maybe it doesn’t need to be. Not after Monday night. Not after what he did to erase the Chargers’ comfy 24-0 lead at halftime. Manning rallied Denver back from the dead, completing 13 of 14 passes for 167 yards and three touchdowns to save his team from a dreaded 2-4 start. If that Peyton Manning continues to take the field, 3-3 could be a distant memory come December. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
