For the Green Bay Packers the key to victory against the Denver Broncos does not likely lie in intense film-study sessions scheming how to stop Peyton Manning from beating them. For the once unstoppable Manning 2015 might very well be his swan song in the NFL after very un-Peyton like performances so far this season.
At age 38, Peyton Manning will likely crack 500 career TDs, a milestone that took Brett Favre until age 41 in his final, gimping year as an NFL quarterback. Manning shows no signs of stopping and many of Favre's legacy career marks are likely to fall to Manning soon.
