Manning Bowl II: Peyton tops Eli again
Manning Bowl II: Peyton tops Eli again
INDIANAPOLIS -- Big brother Peyton showed little bro' Eli who rules America's first family of quarterbacks.
Manning Matchup II was no contest.
Four-time league MVP Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a surprisingly easy 38-14 victory over his kid brother and the New York Giants. He didn't need to do all that much Sunday night thanks to the way Indy's running backs, offensive line and defense gouged the Giants (1-1).
One week after a distressingly lopsided loss at Houston, the Colts (1-1) looked like defending AFC champions. They made Eli Manning and his team resemble amateurs, forcing two quarterback fumbles that gave Indianapolis 14 points.
Four years ago, in the first meeting of sibling NFL quarterbacks, Peyton's Colts won 26-21 at the Meadowlands. Five months later, he guided Indy to the Super Bowl title.
A year later, it was Eli matching that championship, leading the Giants to one of the NFL's biggest upsets over undefeated New England.
The Mannings chatted during pregame warmups and met at midfield for the coin toss, twice shaking hands, but otherwise they could have been total strangers. There were no signs of Peyton wincing on the sideline -- or father Archie cringing in the stands -- while Eli was being pummeled.
