When it comes to Manning Bowls, Peyton is still the king.
Today, his top knight was Knowshon Moreno.
Elder brother Peyton Manning again showed younger brother Eli Manning how it was done, throwing two touchdowns and no interceptions while Eli threw just one touchdown to four interceptions as the Broncos went on to win 41-23 in Week Two NFL action.
Knowshon Moreno started the game, carrying 13 times for 93 yards (7.1-yard average) with a 25-yard touchdown.
Duke Ihenacho was injured in the win, hurting his ankle in the fourth quarter and being ruled out the remainder of the game. It wasn't clear how serious his injury was. Robert Ayers and Ryan Clady also walked off the field with injuries; Clady's looked to be an ankle.
This game cannot end fast enough for the #Broncos. Ihenacho, Ayers, Clady all hurt in the 4th quarter.— MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) September 15, 2013
Julius Thomas scored Denver's other touchdown, making it three touchdowns in two weeks for the up-and-coming tight end.
Overall it was the Broncos defense that kept the Giant at bay. They overcame some really terrible officiating, and a handful of Giants big plays, with a consistently stout effort. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Rahim Moore, Chris Harris Jr., and Tony Carter all came away with interceptions that helped the Broncos pull away.
