Broncos vs. Giants: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
Older brother Peyton remained undefeated in Manning meetings, as Eli's New York Giants could not handle the Denver Broncos' second half surge.
With only a one-point lead at halftime, Peyton and the Broncos regrouped at halftime and wound up blowing out the Giants in MetLife stadium. While Peyton effectively kept the ball out of harm's way, Eli threw four interceptions.
The Broncos are now 2-0 on the season and looking like the team to beat in the AFC. The Giants, on the other hand, are sinking quickly at 0-2.
BRONCOS 41, GIANTS 23.
Less than a minute to play.
Adding insult to injury, Manning throws a fourth interception with no receiver in the area.
Nightmare second-half for the Giants finally comes to a close.

After 81-yd PR today, Trindon Holliday's four TDs of at least 80 yards (all returns) tie Upchurch for the most in Broncos history.— Patrick Smyth (@psmyth12) September 15, 2013
Interesting record Holliday tied on that 81-yard return.

Eli looks frustrated.
He spends one play running for his life then heaves back-to-back balls at Cruz in triple-coverage in the endzone. The second pass is intercepted, Eli's third of the game.
The Broncos are now doing their best to run out the clock.
Da'Rel Scott has 2 yards on 3 carries, so he's fitting right in. #NYG— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoNYDN) September 15, 2013

Brandon Myers, who has absorbed monster hits, shaken up on the field right now.— Ohm Youngmisuk (@NotoriousOHM) September 15, 2013
Brandon Myers has taken a beating today, but he has been a reliable target for Manning. Six catches for 74 yards so far.
10 minutes left in game.
Trindon Holliday rips through the Giants' punt coverage for an 81-yard return touchdown. With 10 minutes remaining, Holliday's return doesn't necessarily ice the game, but it sure puts New York in a deep hole.

Broncos extend lead to 38-16.

Start of fourth quarter.
The Giants are dealt another bad bounce, as Denver's Chris Harris snags a ball that was accidentally bicycle kicked into the air.
Now, with another short field, the Broncos offense is moving efficiently. With a strong running game, Denver is threatening to go up by two scores.

The Broncos offense starts clicking, culminating in a 25-yard touchdown run by Knowshon Moreno. The score was his second of the game, both coming on similar runs to the right side.
We're seeing more offense in this second half as things are beginning to open up for these offenses a bit.
Broncos up, 24-16.
What a missed opportunity...— Ian Taubin (@InReeseWeTrust) September 15, 2013

A couple calls were questionable.
Either way, we have a game on our hands with the final quarter looming.
3:35 left in third quarter.
The Giants are getting a lot of help with four Denver penalties on this drive. Eli is able to move the ball well in the middle of the field, but the lack of running game is really hurting New York in the red-zone.
