Hope you didn't wind up in intensive care after the Broncos' 2014 regular season debut last night. The team looked like world beaters in the first half, running up a 24-0 lead thanks to the heroics of Peyton Manning and Julius Thomas, then nearly gagged the victory away thanks to predictable play calling, dropped passes and the remade defense's inability to stop Andrew Luck and the Colts until victory was teetering on the edge of doom. The 31-24 win got Twitter nation talking. Here are our game-highlight-illustrated top twenty picks for most memorable tweets. Check them out below.
Thank God we didn't choke that one away #Broncos

Terrible second half for the Denver offense. 0 TD for Peyton in the entire second half. AWFUL luck.

Defense bailed out Peyton's choke artist 4th quarter again, but gotta admit: Broncos are a legit contender again...

@OllyDawes it was typical Colts tho. the fire & comeback when Broncos had eased off second half will make ppl forget how outmatched u were.

It's okay. Andrew Luck came back and earned me 25 points last night... All is forgiven. #FantasyFootball

What's really unfair is Peyton Manning had to film three commercials during halftime.
