VIDEO: Remembering When Andrew Luck Stunned Peyton Manning & Denver Broncos With Incredible Home Performance
When it comes to the NFL, there's nothing quite like a matchup between a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback and the up-and-coming star that took his old job with the team that drafted him years ago.
Well, that's exactly what we had on our hands in Indianapolis back in Week 9 of the 2015 NFL season in a showdown between Andrew Luck's Colts and Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos. And it's safe to say the fans got more than they bargained for in this one!
Andrew Luck and the Colts came out of the gates firing, building up a daunting, 17-0, lead over Peyton and the Broncos. However, the game was far from over. Manning and Denver would respond by tying things up, 24-24, but the Colts would eventually hang on for the win, 27-24, to hand the Broncos their first loss of the 2015 NFL season.
If those stakes weren't enough to begin with, Luck stealing this win from Denver also prevented Manning from breaking Brett Favre's record for wins in his old home stadium at Indianapolis.
