Although it took a bit of time for the offense to get going after entering halftime with just a 10-9 lead, the Broncos exploded for 31 second-half points, continuing a trend from last season of being the definition of a "second-half team."
The passing game clicked as Peyton Manning threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns. The four-time NFL MVP has now thrown for nine touchdowns as opposed to zero interceptions through the first two weeks of the season.
The running game finally added another dimension to the offense, as Knowshon Moreno emerged as the front-runner to remain the Broncos' starting running back. The fifth-year veteran ran for 93 yards and two touchdowns in helping the Broncos pull away from the Giants in the second half.
The defense gave Eli Manning fits all game as the Giants quarterback struggled to punch it in the end zone. Eli failed to throw a passing touchdown until late in the fourth quarter when the game was already out of reach. He threw four interceptions to the Broncos secondary.
For the second straight week, the Broncos pulled off an impressive victory versus a solid team. What are some takeaways following the Broncos' 41-23 victory over the Giants at the Meadowlands?
