Jeff Gross/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) — Eli Manning may have more Super Bowl victories but older brother Peyton has more wins against his younger sibling.

Peyton Manning threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns leading the Denver Broncos to a 41-23 win over brother Eli’s New York Giants Sunday.

Peyton is now 3-0 in head-to-head contests against his brother.

“I think both of us are glad that it’s over with,” Peyton said of playing against his brother. “Postseason is one thing, but I don’t think I’ll make it to the next regular season. I think this’ll be the end of it. So I’ll be happy about that… And the family will.”

The game was close at halftime with the Broncos leading 10-9, but the Broncos scored on their first three drives of the second half, and led 31-16 early in the fourth quarter.

Denver running back Knowshon Moreno rushed for 93 yards and two touchdowns as the Broncos improve to 2-0.

Eli completed 28-of-49 passes for 362 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw four interceptions as the Giants (0-2) remain winless.
