Lamar Miller ran for 59 yards on 12 carries. Jarvis Landry was a highlight, catching seven passes for 50 yards with two touchdowns.

The Miami defense fell apart, giving up 257 yards passing and 201 rushing. They tackled Manning for a sack.

Broncos running back C.J. Anderson was impressive, racking up 167 yards rushing, 28 receiving and one touchdown. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas also had a good game with 87 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
