DENVER – Peyton Manning threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns as the Denver Broncos beat New Orleans 34-14 on Sunday Night Football.
Willis McGahee also had a big game for Denver with 122 yards rushing and a touchdown.
In a battle of marquee quarterbacks, Saints signal caller Drew Brees wasn’t able match Manning. Brees, who threw the 300th touchdown pass of his career, was just 22 of 42 for 213 yards in the game. Much of that yardage and the second of his two touchdown passes occurred after the game was well out of reach.
Dave Sims and James Lofton called the action on Westwood One Sports.
