ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Turns out, Peyton Manning does have a favorite wide receiver in Denver -- the one who's open.
That's the thing about the Broncos quarterback: He doesn't particularly play favorites. The four-time NFL MVP is so adept at spreading the wealth around that he's not choosy about his choices.
All he demands is a little bit of open space.
Manning completed passes to six different receivers in a season-opening win against Pittsburgh, simply by taking what the Steelers defense gave him. His ability to stay patient in the pocket and quickly scan the entire field is what makes Manning, well, Manning.
And it also makes his receivers work that much harder down the field, even if they're the fifth option on a play.
