Denver Broncos News: Horse Tracks - 9/15/2013

With Manning Bowl III set to kickoff today, younger brother Eli must know he's about to go 0-3. Just the way it is. When I was growing up, my older brother and I had "Atari Football." Didn't matter how hard I tried to beat my older brother, wins were few and far between. In fact any "win" I ever had was probably due more to my brother's pity than my skill. There are two absolutes I know of 1) My brother can beat me any day of the week at Atari Football 2) Peyton is better at quarterbacking than his younger brother.
