Good morning #BroncosCountry! 

We hope you're enjoying this Friday morning! Here are four things to know before heading into the weekend.

QB Peyton Manning honored the life of one of his biggest fans this week after receiving a touching letter from a grieving grandmother. Last March, a drunk driver in Evansville, Indiana, took Logan Brown's life and his grandmother wrote to Manning. In the letter, she explained how Brown was a huge fan and what he meant to him.

In response, Manning sent a handwritten letter and an autographed picture to the grieving family, expressing his condolences earlier this month on what would have been Brown’s 16th birthday.
