Broncos vs. Giants: TV Info, Spread, Injury Updates, Game Time and More
By now the NFL world has caught up to the antics of the Manning brothers in Week 1, where Peyton posted some eye-popping numbers against the defending champs, and Eli faltered on a national stage.
One of Week 2's marquee matchups features a showdown between the two in New York.
Denver hits the road after kicking off the NFL season in a big way behind Peyton Manning's seven touchdown passes, as the Broncos gained 510 yards of total offense in the process of dismantling the Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens, 49-27.
New York returns home after Eli Manning managed four touchdowns and the Giants came close to matching Denver with their own 478 total yards, but to underwhelming results as Eli threw three interceptions and the Giants lost 36-31.
The third iteration of the "Manning Bowl" has arrived, and here's everything fans need to know about the spectacle.

Which Manning Will Overpower the Other?
The game between Denver and New York comes down to one thing: Which Manning brother can exploit a vulnerable defense?
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco was able to pick apart the Denver defense last week on his way to 362 yards and two scores, which Eli should have no difficulties doing after tossing four scores and 450 yards of his own.
Peyton is not without stellar weapons of his own such as Demaryius Thomas (five for 161, two scores), Julius Thomas (five for 110 and two scores) and Wes Welker (nine for 67 and two) as he prepares to take on a New York defense that allowed Dallas to rack up over 330 total yards.
In other words—expect fireworks.
Whichever Manning brother comes closer to perfection will enable his team to come out on top.
Which team will win?
Eli has never overcome Peyton in a head-to-head contest and that won't change with the way these two teams are built.
Peyton has the ability to spread out New York's defensive front and choose from Welker, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Eric Decker on every play. That's too many quality weapons to cover for the Giants defense and it will cost them the game.
Make no mistake—Eli will get his against a Denver defense that will struggle to contain the crafty Cruz. However, a "good enough" secondary headed up by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Champ Bailey will give Peyton the cushion he needs to win.
Peyton and Co. continue on their Super Bowl push at 2-0 while Eli and Co. search for answers heading into Week 3 winless.
Broncos win 34-20
