The New York Giants are now 0-2 after Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos prevailed 41-23 on Sunday.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning beat his younger brother Eli and the New York Giants yet again.

The Broncos prevailed 41-23 on Sunday, upping Peyton Manning's record to 3-0 against Eli in the NFL ranks. The two other wins were during Peyton's days with the Indianapolis Colts. 

Broncos running back Knowshown Moreno contirubted 93 yards for two touchdowns. Wide receiver Wes Welker and tight end Julius Thomas each had one touchdown for Denver. 

The Giants actually led in the early going at 3-0 on a Josh Brown field goal after Eli Manning connected with wide receiver Victor Cruz on a 51-yard pass. However, New York couldn't capitalize in the end zone.

Peyton Manning handed the ball off to Moreno to make it 7-3 Broncos early in the second quarter. Two New York field goals would give it back the lead at 9-7. The Broncos countered with a field goal of their own to reclaim the lead and then their cornerback, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, picked off Eli Manning to end the first half.

Welker and Brandon Jacobs, who returned to the Giants last week, exchanged touchdowns to make it 17-16 Broncos. Moreno and Thomas then scored on touchdowns while their teammate, Trindon Holliday, returns a punt for one to put the game virtually out of reach at 38-16. 

Da'Rel Scott hauled in a touchdown pass from Eli Manning and then the Broncos added another field goal for the game's final score. 

The older Manning wound up with 307 passing yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions while his younger brother finished with 362 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions. The latter finished with 15 interceptions in the entire 2012 season. 

At the game's final whistle, the two brothers met on the field and shook hands while being surrounded by an excited media horde.
