Patriots vs. Colts: Peyton Manning Not Looking Very Peyton Manning Like

On his first play after throwing an interception to Brandon Meriweather, Peyton Manning had his pass tipped into the air by Devin McCourty, and then almost picked—the ball falling just out of the rookie cornerback’s reach. Not long after, he threw another bullet that found New England hands, as this time it was Jerod Mayo coming up just short of the interception.

The Colts punt it away on 4th-and-2, giving the Patriots a shot to build their early lead. We’ve only seen four plays from the Pats so far, but right now Tom Brady looks every bit as sharp as Manning doesn’t.
