NFL Roundup: Broncos hold off Colts; Dolphins stun Patriots

DENVER — Peyton Manning and Julius Thomas connected for three second-quarter touchdowns, and the defending AFC champion Denver Broncos held off the Indianapolis Colts, 31-24, on Sunday night. Manning, who spent the first 13 years of his illustrious career with the Colts, was in midseason form in the first half, guiding the Broncos (1-0) to a commanding 24-0 lead. Andrew Luck led Indianapolis back and made things interesting, but ultimately fell short of upending Denver for a second straight season.
