Broncos vs. Colts: Five Keys to Victory for Denver

4 of 6

3. No Slow Starts

The Broncos have been notorious for starting games off really slowly and out of sync since Manning came aboard. That pre-dates his Denver days, and many Broncos fans might recall the times he played against Denver and gave us a ray of hope with a close first half or even sometimes a halftime lead.

Manning is a master of halftime adjustments but it would be nice if his adjustments could come with a sizable lead. The Broncos are built for a quick strike offense and a defense that is strong from the inside out, so getting out to an early lead should be something they can make happen.
