Only two games on the card Sunday night but they both involved interesting storylines.

Peyton Manning looked sharp in his 3rd preseason game with the Broncos.

Also just as interesting, but perhaps for different reasons, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow continued to struggle in their 3rd preseason outing with the Jets.  

Peyton and his Horses look ready for Week 1, while Mark and Timmy have only left us wondering what all of the Wildcat hype may lead to.

Denver had 18 passing first downs but only two rushing first downs.

San Francisco was 0 for 3 in the red zone.

Peyton Manning was 10 for 12 for 122 yards with two TDs and 0 INTs for the Broncos.

The 49ers as a team attempted just 16 passes, completing 10 of them for 165 yards with one TD and no INTs.

Denver targeted 17 different receivers in the game and 14 of them had a reception. Eric Decker was targeted seven times and had four receptions for 38 yards and two touchdowns.

Carolina had 12 passing first downs but only had four rushing first downs.

The Jets only averaged 4.9 yards per completion.

The Jets were 0-3 in the red zone. They are now 0-5 in the red zone in three preseason games thus far.

The Jets have had 174 offensive plays so far in the preseason and have failed to scored a touchdown on any of them.

"Ground and Pound" for the Jets' offense has seen average results, with rushing totals of 133, 116, and 65 yards in their three preseason games.

Stephen Hill was targeted seven times and caught five for 68 yards.

Luke Kuechly had a hat on a lot of tackles last night, as he had two solo tackles 10 tackles total for the game.
