Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway knows the key to beating the Denver Broncos is to stop quarterback Peyton Manning. Even though he's 39 years old, Greenway still believes Manning is the best passer in the game today.

"He's the straw that stirs the drink, and we have to try to get to him and be physical with him as much as we can," Greenway said, per Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. "You want to beat the best and he's proven to be the best over his career at multiple levels and for multiple teams now. It'd be a great challenge for us to beat him and especially at home in his environment. The challenge is definitely taking down Peyton. Hopefully we're up to it."

Manning's arm strength may not be what it once was, but his statistics have hardly shifted. After a slow start, the veteran quarterback came back with his first 300-yard performance of the season in a Week 3 win over the Detroit Lions. On top of the impressive yardage figure, Manning also completed 73.8 percent of his pass attempts and threw two touchdowns against the Lions.
