EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Unless they meet again in the post-season, this was the last Manning Bowl. No less an authority than Peyton Manning says so, and why not: Peyton is 3-0 against younger brother Eli in regular-season games after Denvers 41-23 rout Sunday of the New York Giants. "I think both of us are glad that its over with," Peyton said after throwing for two touchdowns. "Postseason is one thing, but I dont think Ill make it to the next regular season (meeting, in four years). I think thisll be the end of it. So Ill be happy about that. And the family will." Big brother didnt need another record-tying seven touchdown passes. He got this win with a huge boost from Knowshon Moreno, who rushed for two touchdowns and 93 yards on just 13 carries. Denver (2-0), which has won 13 straight regular-season games, ran for 109 yards altogether. With Manning finding Wes Welker and Julius Thomas for touchdowns, and Moreno scoring on sprints down the right side, Denver dominated much of the matchup between Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks; Eli has won two titles, Peyton one. The older Mannings first two victories against his sibling came when Peyton was with the Colts. "For me, its a strange feeling," Peyton said. "Its not quite as enjoyable as if you beat somebody else." Peyton finished 30 of 43 for 307 yards with no interceptions. Eli was 28 of 39 for 362 yards, but was picked off four times; he had 15 interceptions all of last season and has seven already this year. After the rout, the brothers shared a very short handshake while surrounded by a mob of photographers and TV cameras. They had exchanged their greetings before the kickoff. "We chatted for 10 minutes, nothing specific, just brotherly talk," Eli said. "After that, there wasnt a whole lot of brotherly interaction." The Giants also allowed Trindon Hollidays spectacular 81-yard punt return for a touchdown, the first such score in the league this season. Peyton, who became the third player over 60,000 career yards passing on Denvers opening drive, connected with a wide-open Welker for a 2-yard score that gave the Broncos a 17-9 lead. But little brother took New York 81 yards in response, although the drive was built more on Broncos blunders -- four penalties, including two for pass interference -- than Manning magic. There was plenty of Moreno magic on Denvers next series, when he again surged around right end to almost duplicate his earlier 20-yard scoring run with a 25-yarder. Considered a backup heading toward the season, New Jersey native Moreno was virtually the entire running game for the Broncos on Sunday -- and he made the difference. "I feel the same every game, always amped up and real emotional," he said. "You just got to go out and play." Peyton Manning also hit Thomas for an 11-yard score as Denver pulled away in the second half after leading 10-9 at halftime. DaRel Scott took a short pass 23 yards for a TD for New York to conclude the Giants scoring. "Its very disappointing, frustrating ... the whole point is we have to hang in there," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We have 14 games to go. We have been 0-2 before. We dug ourselves into a hole before and been able to fight our way out of it. When we did it was with team, but the performance level has to come up." The sloppy first half was marred by eight dropped passes on both sides, including three by Welker. The biggest drop, though, came on a running play when rookie Montee Ball fumbled at the New York 3 to ruin Denvers drive from its 7 on the opening series. Eli Manning then led his team 62 yards -- 51 on a pass to Victor Cruz -- and Josh Brown made a 36-yard field goal. Brown added kicks of 24 and 41 yards in the first half. Denvers first touchdown came on Morenos 20-yard sprint around right end early in the second quarter, and Matt Prater made a 42-yard field goal 47 seconds before halftime. He added a 47-yarder 2:38 from the end. The Giants have allowed 77 points in two games. NOTES: Denver has won 400 games since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. It tied a team record with its seventh straight road victory, even though it drew 13 penalties for 132 yards. ... The Broncos last won at the Giants in 1980. ... Cruz had eight catches for 118 yards, his second straight 100-yard outing this season. ... Broncos LB Danny Trevathan had the games only sack and was in on 10 tackles. cheap nfl jerseys. -- Justin Maxwell has provided a huge boost for Kansas City since coming over from the Astros. cheap stitched jerseys. On this weeks blog, I look at three big questions surrounding our MLS clubs. 1. Who is next in Vancouver? When the Whitecaps took the decision not to renew the contract of head coach Martin Rennie after two years with the club, it seemed as though Frank Yallop would be the man to take over the job. Mauer had three hits, drove in two runs and was flawless in his first game at first base as the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 6-2 on Thursday night. "Teammates were supporting me, it was a lot of fun," Mauer said. cheap jerseys from china. Someone asked him about how well the team had played down the stretch of the 2011-12 season, despite being eliminated from playoff contention for several months. cheap nfl stitched jerseys. Watch the home opener live on TSN2 at 7pm et/4pm pt. "One thing you have to do on opening night, youve got to temper emotions," said Raptors coach Dwane Casey Wednesday morning after shoot-around.After a season that saw only two Canadian clubs reach the Stanley Cup playoffs, hockey fans north of the border are hoping that their teams have made the changes necessary to get them into the post-season. With seven NHL rinks now on Canadian soil, which teams have improved their playoff chances the most? Calgary Flames2010-2011 Record: 41-29-1210th in Western Conference The Flames finished just three points shy of the post-season last year in the tightly contested Western Conference. While its no consolation, their 94 points would have been enough to sneak into the playoffs in the Eastern Conferences eighth spot. Calgary responded by making a run at this off-seasons biggest free agent, Brad Richards. Much like their playoff push in March and April, the Flames stayed in the race until the end but came up empty-handed. Despite missing out on Richards, the Flames have kept busy since the end of the season, trading veteran defenceman Robyn Regehr and underwhelming forward Ales Kotalik to the Buffalo Sabres for 24-year-old defenceman Chris Butler and 22-year-old centre Paul Byron. Butler may end up as one of the Flames top four defenders, but the consistency Regehr brought to the blueline in Calgary will be tough to replace. Edmonton Oilers2010-2011 Record: 25-45-1215th in Western Conference The Oilers are in the fortunate position of having a young roster that will simply improve with another year of experience. Their young core added yet another weapon through the draft with first overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. It remains to be seen whether Nugent-Hopkins will follow the path of last years top pick Taylor Hall, who joined the club right away and was able to contribute. Edmonton was able to bring back veteran forward Ryan Smyth through a trade with the Los Angeles Kings. Smyth sounds more than happy to return to Edmonton and will provide leadership for the new youthful version of the team. The Oilers had a busy Canada Day, signing forward Ben Eager, centre Eric Belanger, forward Darcy Hordichuk and defenceman Cam Barker. They also traded defenceman Kurtis Foster to Anaheim for veteran defender Andy Sutton. After finishing last in the entire league, the Oilers have the longest road back to the playoffs but there is plenty to get excited about on the ice in Edmonton. Toronto Maple Leafs2010-2011 Record: 37-34-1110th in Eastern Conference Much like the Flames, the Maple Leafs were left at the altar by Brad Richards. However, Brian Burke didnt let that stop his club from raking in talent. A day after they swung and missed on Richards, the team signed former Sabres centre Tim Connolly. If you put his injury history aside, Connolly is almost a point a game player over the last two seasons, while playing in 141 of a possiblle 164 games.dddddddddddd The 30-year-old playmaker will likely line up with Phil Kessel on the Leafs top line. Toronto also acquired 23-year-old defenceman Cody Franson from the Nashville Predators, along with centre Matthew Lombardi in exchange for Brett Lebda, Robert Slaney and a conditional fourth round pick. Franson has potential to develop into a solid player on the Leafs blueline and while Lombardi is an injury risk similar to Connolly, he has the skill to improve their offensive attack. Prior to free agency, the Maple Leafs traded for defenceman John-Michael Liles, who will fill the puck-mover role that was left open when Tomas Kaberle was dealt to Boston. The 30-year-old has the ability to quarterback the teams power-play, something Toronto is hoping he can make good on. Winnipeg Jets2010-2011 Record: 34-36-12 (Atlanta Thrashers)12th in Eastern Conference Just the fact that an NHL team will take the ice in Winnipeg next season should be considered a win for hockey fans north of the border, but the Jets will be looking to make some post-season noise in their first season back in Winnipeg. The team avoided arbitration with their captain Andrew Ladd, who led the team with 29 goals and 59 points last season. Outside of that move, the Jets have been one of the quieter teams on the free agent front, inking forwards Rick Rypien and Tanner Glass, as well as defenceman Randy Jones and Derek Meech. They may not be the most flashy signings, but they will provide new head coach Claude Noel with more depth in his lineup as he tries to increase the teams win total of 34 from last season. Ottawa Senators2010-2011 Record: 32-40-1013th in Eastern Conference Things will look different in Ottawa for the 2011-12 season, with Paul MacLean taking over behind the bench. With Ottawas AHL affiliate coming off a Calder Cup win, this season may be the perfect time for the Senators to give some of their prospects a chance to prove their worth in the NHL. The Senators landed Zenon Konopka in free agency, formerly of the New York Islanders. Konopka is a good character player who can win his fair share of faceoffs and will fit in nicely in the nations capital. Bryan Murray took a flyer on forward Nikita Filatov, a former sixth overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. The Columbus Blue Jackets were unable to develop the Russian-winger, so they decided to part ways, sending him to the Sens for a third-rounder. Its a move with little risk and plenty of reward if the Senators can find a way to harness his talent. Goaltender Alex Auld will also don the Ottawa jersey in the fall, signed to be a backup for Craig Anderson. So, which Canadian team that failed to make the playoffs has the best chance at reaching the post-season next year? ' ' '
