As is always the case, “defending” Peyton Manning is a relative thing. Manning finished Sunday’s loss to the St. Louis Rams with 389 yards passing, his third-highest output of the season, but the Rams still felt good about their plan. They sacked Manning twice and knocked down 12 passes — 22 percent of Manning’s attempts.
The Broncos worked out of a three-wide receiver look much of the time, as they often do and as the Rams expected.
