Peyton Manning and the Broncos beat the Steelers in a tough game for both sides. These were the quarterback's seven takeaways:

"We had to settle for field goals. I give them credit for that. Field goals are better than no points but we knew we’d eventually need to get a touchdown drive."

"I’d like to get in there maybe early in the morning and delete it off the game film. I don’t know if I could. Those video guys get there pretty quick." – on his self-sack

"It was quite windy down there. You could feel it in the throwing. I got to believe the receivers – that factored in to them, as well."

Tom Brady v. Peyton Manning

"Our defense has been outstanding all season. They’ve led us to this point. Let’s make that clear… but you have to be a good team to win these playoff games. You have to win as a team. Defense did a great job at holding them and offensively, we did just enough to win."

"It’s very satisfying to win. To beat the Steelers in a playoff game—those guys over there are battle-tested. They’ve been in a lot of big games."

"I felt fine throughout the whole night." – on his foot.

"We’ll deal with (the Patriots) on Wednesday. We got a couple of hours to enjoy this one tonight."
