SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Peyton Manning came out firing and the Broncos scored first.

Denver took the opening kick and the first four plays were passes for 46 yards. C.J. Anderson then ran for 8 and 12 yards. After Ronnie Hillman lost 3 yards, Manning threw two incomplete passes and the Broncos settled for a 34-yard field goal by Brandon McManus to take a 3-0 lead.

Manning got away with a poor pass that Robert McClain nearly picked near the sideline.
