When the NFL schedule-makers made things tough on the Broncos, Peyton Manning and his teammates went right back to work.

Manning said Saturday that almost as soon as they saw three playoff teams - starting with his former team, the Colts - the NFL's reigning MVP returned to the weight room for another session.

For Manning, there's plenty at stake. Manning made an emotional return to the city he used to call home in October but departed with a 39-33 loss. He hadn't come back to Indy until this weekend, though for a much different reason - to help raise money for the Peyton Manning's Children's Hospital at St. Vincent.
