Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score Sunday night, handing Denver a 39-33 loss — its first of the season — without even needing one of Luck’s trademark fourth-quarter comebacks.
Heading into the game, Manning and Denver (6-1) looked virtually unbeatable. The Broncos were scoring points by the dozens in the midst of a 17-game regular-season winning streak and showed no signs of even hitting a speed bump.
Then came what was supposed to be Manning’s happy homecoming. Nothing went right and now the Kansas City Chiefs are the NFL’s lone unbeaten team.
