The Other Paper:
After Peyton Manning joined Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, YA Tittle and Joe Kapp as the only NFL quarterbacks to throw seven touchdowns in a single game, Eli Manning chimed in on his big brother's remarkable feat.
The New York Giants quarterback downplayed Thursday night's brilliant performance by Peyton as only a younger sibling could.
“Yeah, he did okay,” Eli Manning deadpanned to the Giants website. “He did alright. He makes it look easy. I don’t appreciate that. I know it definitely is harder than what it looked like, especially that second half. But he played pretty outstanding. It was fun to watch.”
The older Manning threw a franchise-record seven touchdowns in the Denver Broncos’ 49-27 victory over the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in Denver. He became the first quarterback to do so since former Vikings’ Kapp accomplished the feat in 1969.
He completed 27 of 42 passes for 462 with the seven touchdowns and no interceptions.
Still, Eli has a pair of Super Bowl rings — as opposed to Peyton's one — to help keep things into perspective. The brothers will face each other in the third Manning Bowl at MetLife Stadium next Sunday.

Not quite yet. Although the game was incredible feat getting a little revenge on the Super Bowl champions, which entailed the 49-27 score, the most the Baltimore Ravens have ever given up in a game, there were a lot of “rookie” mistakes that still need to be resolved before the Broncos can be considered a Super Bowl caliber team, although they are one of the top contenders...
Welcome to the 2013 season, folks. The Broncos put it to the Ravens in the season opener on Thursday Night Football (or Sunday Night Football on Thursday Night or whatever it was called). I’ve already gone into some detail on some shining performances from the likes of Julius Thomas and other under-the-radar players. But, this […]The post Peyton Manning was a monster for the...
If you were sleep, or under a rock, you missed quite an opening night to the NFL season.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos opened their regular season with a rematch of the their AFC Divisional loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
From the outset of the ballgame, it seemed as if Peyton Manning was trying to make up for his late game interception during the Broncos playoff loss to the...
Here are four fantasy revelations from the Broncos' 49-27 thumping of the Ravens on Thursday, which included an NFL-record-tying performance from Peyton Manning.
1. Even in hindsight, it's hard to feel guilty about Manning's No. 8 ranking for the week
Of his nine previous season openers, Manning (462 yards passing, seven TDs vs. Baltimore) had thrown for 2,529 yards...
Peyton Manning won the Poster War. Manning was hanging in banner form back turned to his enemy pictured in the classic quarterback pose a glove missing from his right passing hand.
The other poster controversially hanging outside the stadium that Denver-area taxpayers and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen built was Joe Flacco. He represented the bane of what Denver fans wish for.
You know when you are playing Madden and you are unstoppable, well last night Peyton Manning has that feeling. At least in the second half. Believe it or not the Denver Broncos were actually losing at halftime 17-14. If you stopped watching the game after the first quarter when you saw the miscommunication between Peyton Manning and the Broncos wide outs, you would be stunned when...
Broncos fans have to be encouraged by the performance of Peyton Manning and the Denver offense, particularly in the second half of the opener Thursday night. Manning joined rare company in having thrown for seven touchdowns in a game – only five others have accomplished that feat.
Manning had closed in on the mark twice previously, tossing six TDs against Detroit in 2004 and against...
After Peyton Manning set the football world on fire with his seven-touchdown performance on Thursday night, the NFL season is now in full swing as Sunday will present the first slate of games for the 2013 season. While it’s unlikely that Manning’s performance against Baltimore on Thursday night will be duplicated this week, there are [...]
The editor at the Columbus Dispatch obviously was asleep at the wheel when they were going through this article talking about the Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens game. The title of the article said “Elway Throws For Seven Touchdown passes” and the first two words of the article are “Peyton Manning.” Then the next paragraph starts with “Elway” and the following one...
I pumped up Julius Thomas a lot this Summer, but did not expect him to go off the way he did on Thursday night. The light bulb went on with Orange Julius this Summer, and all indications were that Peyton Manning spent a ton of extra time working with him. It has paid off as the former basketball player took a little time to develop, but all the stars have aligned.
I’m not expecting...

The NFC East is filled with question marks. Just one team made the playoffs from the division last year, the Washington Redskins, who recovered from a 3-6 start to win the division. It really is anyone’s guess as to who the…Read more →
Despite getting blown out by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, the Baltimore Ravens suffered a lot more than a 47-29 loss. Ravens’ star player and Super Bowl XLVII “hero” Jacoby Jones suffered an apparent MCL sprain after accidentally colliding with teammate Brynden Trawick while trying to catch a punt early in the second quarter.
