ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - It was early November in Cincinnati. The Broncos quarterback dropped back to pass and found a receiver open for a 30-yard gain.
Four plays later, Denver scored the winning touchdown and John Elway, in his 16th and final season, had the 39th game-winning drive of the 40 he would engineer in the fourth quarter or overtime.
Fast forward 15 years to another November day in Cincinnati. Elway runs the team from the front office and the quarterback he brought to Denver, Peyton Manning, directs a five-play, 80-yard drive that gives the Broncos the fourth-quarter lead. It's his 48th game-winning drive. Manning now holds the NFL record in a category Elway once defined.
Coach John Fox says of Manning: ``I think he thrives on it. I think most competitors do.''
