Peyton's place is now a mile high and he appears to be riding as high as ever. After 611 days of staying away from the gridiron, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has an amazingly successful comeback from his multiple neck surgeries and surprises doubters and loyal fans by throwing his 400th career touch down pass in Denver's 31-19 game victory over Pittsburgh Steelers. Manning received a big assist from another big-time free agent and corner-back Tracy Porter, whose 43-yard interception return of Roethlisberger's pass with 2 minutes left and the Broncos clinging to victory.

Meanwhile, Tulane Football player receives spinal surgery as loved ones and teammates of safety Devon Walker face an agonizing wait to learn how serious the injury is and whether it will leave him paralyzed. Walker fractured his spine while making a tackle.
