Good morning, #BroncosCountry –
Still celebrating that win from Thursday? You're not alone! But while you're re-watching that fourth quarter performance for the third time, here are three things to get caught up on, starting with your favorite signal caller:
1. Manning gives fan a day to remember
Quarterback Peyton Manning responded to a letter from Kari Barnett Bollig, and helped give her a lasting memory at the Broncos' season opener.
Dana Hunsinger Benbow, a writer for the Indianapolis Star and friend of Bollig, recounted her friend's experience with Manning in an open later this week.
Bollig, who has stage four cancer, lives in Rock Springs, Wyoming, and sent a letter to Manning.
"I have followed Peyton Manning forever, especially being an Indiana girl," she said. "I just thought, 'Well shoot. I'm going to write him a letter and tell him how much he inspires me, not just because he's a football player, but for what he does off the field.
"It was very personal. It was very heartfelt and I never thought anything of it other than I wrote it and sent it," she said. "I didn't even know he would get it."
But he did, and Bollig got to experience two days in Mile High and tickets to the Broncos' home opener.

2. Bolden and Bruton give back in style
