As stated in my season preview, the Peyton vs Eli sibling rivalry record is 2-0 Peyton. The first matchup in 2006 at New York was a 26-21 victory, the second at Indianapolis in 2010 38-14. The last time the Broncos and the Giants faced off was in 2009 with a 26-6 blowout by the Broncos. Just looking at history it’s pretty obvious who are the favorites in this matchup. It’s hard not to compare the siblings when, in the same week, one broke a few NFL records with 7 touchdown passes in a single game, while the other threw three interceptions including one on the first pass of the game. The Giant’s coach Tom Coughlin was not happy about the Giants’ 36-31 loss to the Cowboys saying, “I’m totally, totally disappointed, embarrassed about that football. That’s sloppy, sloppy football.” Eli Manning getting sacked Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys (Photo Credit: Dallas Cowboys) The Giants seemed like the more consistent team compared to Dallas judging by their passing yardage (428-244) and tackles (73-53). The main reason Dallas won was because of their ability to get to E.Manning. They were able to intercept three of E.Manning’s passes and sack him three times (compared to the Giants one). Giants’ mistakes also contributed, specifically with David Wilson and Truman McBride causing the three additional fumbles which resulted in Dallas touchdowns. Last week the Broncos were able to intercept Joe Flacco and sack him four times while also holding the Ravens to just 335 yards and 4.5 yards per play (compared to Denver’s 510 yards and 7.5 yards per play). It goes without saying adding seven Peyton Manning touchdowns to that did more than enough to prove that they were the better team. Although the stats and comparisons can speak for themselves what is obvious is that if the Broncos play like they did last week they should be able to pull of a win. Denver needs to be able to fix whatever minor issues they had last week and focus on putting pressure on E.Manning. The only thing different from last week is obviously the sibling rivalry and the fact that it is in New York, the Giants’ first home game. Hopefully Coach Coughlin will put in changes to fix all the issues New York had last week. Based on last week if the Broncos have the game they did and the Giants play that “sloppy football” they played, NY will lose by a lot more than five points. Broncos 31 – Giants 17
