Broncos Vs. Falcons 2012: Denver Loses, The Web Reacts

Mile High Report rounds up the early Tuesday morning reaction from across the Web to the Denver Broncos' 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Monday night, including a piece from NFL.com on how Peyton Manning's second game with the team didn't go nearly as well as his first.

In an article titled "Peyton Manning crashes to Earth in loss to Falcons," Dan Hanzus writes how the Falcons had Manning looking confused and rattled, especially compared to how poised he was in the team's Week 1 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Manning threw three interceptions on the Broncos' first three possessions:

"I'd obviously like to have all three of them back," said Manning, who finished 24 of 37 for 241 yards and one touchdown. "Just three bad decisions. ... When I see the film, I'm sure I'll see someone open short underneath on the check down."

Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post writes about Denver's lack of a pass rush Monday night after a five-sack performance in Week 1, but notable by his absence from the stat sheet in both games has been pass-rush specialist Elvis Dumervil.
