Peyton Manning: How the Broncos QB Fared Against the Niners
By Scotty McGraw | Bleacher Report
After compiling zero touchdowns and three interceptions during the first two preseason games, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning entered his third preseason battle with many questions bubbling around the storied signal caller.
