NFL Scores

 

Final Score: Denver 41, NY Giants 23

East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - Peyton 3, Eli 0. 

Peyton  Manning  ran his  record against  brother Eli to  3-0, passing for 307 
yards and two touchdowns Sunday as the Denver Broncos beat the New York Giants 
41-23. 

The  elder Manning, who beat Eli twice as quarterback of the Colts, was coming 
off  an NFL record-tying seven touchdown  passes in a season-opening win over 
the Ravens. 

He had a little more help in this one. 

Knowshon  Moreno had  touchdown runs of 20  and 25 yards for the Broncos (2-0) 
and  Trindon  Holliday ran  back a  punt 81 yards  for another score. Peyton's 
touchdown passes went to Wes Welker and Julius Thomas. 

Eli  was  intercepted three times in  the end zone among his career high-tying 
four picks. He passed for 362 yards and a touchdown. 

The  Giants (0-2) have  lost their first two games of the season for the first 
time  since 2007.  Combined with a 36-31  loss to Dallas, they have allowed 77 
points this season. 

The  silver lining? The  Giants gave up 80 points in their first two losses in 
2007,  including 45 to Dallas to open the season, and went on to win the Super 
Bowl. 

Of  course, that's one  area Eli has his brother beat: two Super bowl rings to 
one.
