Peyton Beats Little Brother For 3rd Straight Time

Broncos_Peyton_Manning_2012Big brother Manning got the better of his kid sibling, with lots of help from Denver’s one-man ground game.

Peyton Manning didn’t need another record-tying seven touchdown passes Sunday, settling for two in the Broncos’ 41-23 romp over Eli and the Giants.

The older Manning is 3-0 in the NFL against Eli, with the other two victories coming when Peyton was with the Colts. He got this win with a huge boost from Knowshon Moreno, who rushed for two touchdowns and 93 yards on just 13 carries. Denver (2-0), which has won 13 straight regular-season games, ran for 109 yards altogether.

With Manning finding Wes Welker and Julius Thomas for touchdowns, and Moreno scoring on sprints down the right side of 20 and 25 yards, Denver dominated much of the matchup between Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks; Eli has won two titles, Peyton one.
