Denver Broncos vs New York Giants takes place on Sunday in an NFL 2013 Week 2 clash that has been billed as Peyton Manning vs Eli Manning. Obviously there will be a lot more to it than the quarterback brothers – and of course they won't even be on the field at the same time as one another – but that added interest point has made this one of the must-see games today. The game is scheduled to start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos head to New York looking to take down Eli and the Giants and go 2-0 to start the season. If that happens the Giants will drop to 0-2 and be in the fringe of crisis mode entering Week 3 without a win.
This game should provide a masterclass in quarterback skills – combined Peyton and Eli threw for more than 900 yards and 11 touchdowns in Week 1. The difference being that Peyton came out on a winning side, where as Eli suffered the agonizing pain of coming up just short against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Giants will be disappointed losing in Week 1 having piled on 31 points, posting 478 total yards in offense and 428 yards on pass – enough to rank 3rd and 2nd respectively in the entire league. But despite the impressive stats the Giants ultimately lost.
Eli Manning completed 27 throws from 42 attempts for 450 yards and four touchdowns.
If there was one side that impressed more offensively than the Giants it was the Broncos; they scored a massive 49 points, recording 510 yards in total and 445 yards offensively – that ranks them top in the NFL for all three categories.
Interestingly, Peyton Manning had almost exactly the same stats as his brother, also completing 27 throws from 42 attempts. However, he exceeded his younger brother in both total yards and touchdowns – he threw for 462 yards and posted an amazing 7 touchdowns.
Without a doubt this should be an interesting offensive football feast.
The Broncos will want to build on their 49-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens last week and go 2-0. However, the Giants will be desperate to bounce back from their tight 31-36 loss to the Cowboys, and will want to avoid going 0-2.
