Yeah, Manning played decently but really Balt had a lot of things bottled up - and as you mentioned had good pressure on him from all angles. And also like you said when Moreno went out there was two crucial plays where Ball and Hillman blew their protections.
Balt just outplayed and outcoached Denver, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
