EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Peyton Manning again beat younger brother Eli, throwing two touchdown passes in leading the Denver Broncos past the New York Giants 41-23 on Sunday.
The older Manning is 3-0 in the NFL against his sibling, 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. Denver (2-0), which has won 13 straight regular-season games, rushed for 109 yards altogether.
Peyton Manning didn't need to match his record-tying seven touchdown passes from the Broncos' season-opening victory. Not with the Giants (0-2) being charitable again with three more turnovers after they had six in last's week loss. They also allowed Trindon Holliday's spectacular 81-yard punt return for a touchdown, the first such score in the league this season.
