    Two of the NFL’s best. One goodbye.

    DENVER – They met at midfield for the coin toss before the first overtime – Ray Lewis sleeveless and smoldering in the single-digit temperatures, Peyton Manning bundled in a big blue winter coat.

    They hugged and shared private comments on the field, minutes after the game ended.

    They met in the empty visitors locker room a little more than an hour later — Lewis in a grey three-piece suit, wearing gold-rimmed glasses; Manning in a darker jacket and slacks, standing a few inches taller than his rival.

    They talked about an epic of a football game that served as a goodbye — but Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, and not Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, will play next week.

    Trindon Holliday, panting after his 90-yard TD return.

    Holliday, a former NCAA 100-meter track champion, returned a punt after Baltimore’s failed opening possession 90 yards for a touchdown – the longest postseason punt return in NFL history.

    It was first postseason punt return touchdown in Broncos history. The Broncos claimed Holliday off waivers in October when he was released by Houston, and he has provided plenty of excitement since.

    Peyton Manning Is Back and Better Than Ever

    Every few days, Archie Manning’s phone will ring early in the morning.

    It’s even earlier in Colorado, where Peyton Manning frequently makes the most of his time on the 20-minute commute from his home in an upscale suburb of Denver to the Broncos training facility.

    Archie Manning has been making it a point not to bother his son too much during his first season in Denver, but this much is clear from those phone calls: Peyton Manning is happy and enjoying football more than ever.
