Week 2 continues, and the NFL schedule for Sept. 15 features the Manning Bowl with Peyton Manning and Eli Manning facing off for the third time as the Denver Broncos travel to the New York Giants.
A record-setting performance has Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos flying high as they roll into MetLife Stadium. Eli Manning can't say the same as he and the New York Giants look to get back on track after a disheartening season-opening effort.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- If it were any other week, Eli Manning might have said a lot of nice things about his brother, Peyton.
In the fourth preseason game, most coaches give very limited playing time to key players. Some coaches make sure everyone who will be on the field for Week 1 of the regular season don't even sniff the field. That's smart. There's nothing to gain. Tom Coughlin is a heck of a coach. He has taken two teams to Super Bowls, and he'll get Hall of Fame consideration some day (being on the East Coast won't hurt). Which makes his desire to use key players for a pretty significant stretch in the fourth preseason game just weird. The New York Giants' starters played for the first quarter against New England. Eli Manning was still in late in the first quarter to throw a touchdown to Hakeem Nicks. Makes sense, considering those are young, inexperienced players who obviously need reps. Oh, it was all fun and games until running back Andre Brown limped to the locker room in the second quarter. Perhaps Coughlin didn't hear the uproar in the town over Jets coach Rex Ryan getting Mark Sanchez hurt behind a backup offensive line in the third quarter last week.
