INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Peyton Manning showed some compassion for his little brother. It didn't help — the Indianapolis Colts pummeled Eli anyway.
Big brother Peyton dispensed with his usual encouragement for his defense to get after the opposing quarterback. No matter: Peyton proved he still rules America's first family of quarterbacks and the Colts dominated Eli's New York Giants 38-14 Sunday night.
Manning Matchup II was no contest.
"No, I didn't," four-time league MVP Peyton said of dropping his pregame pep talk. He didn't need to do all that much thanks to the way Indy's running backs, offensive line and defense gouged the Giants (1-1).
"I really just kind of focused on the defense and on our running game," Peyton said after he threw for three touchdowns. "This was a different kind of game for me. The run really was the ticket tonight."
But the focus, naturally, was on Peyton vs. Eli.
"I told him I loved him," Peyton said of their 10-minute conversation after the game. "I think they will be fine. They play the Titans next week and we'll being pulling hard for them to help us in the AFC South. We will do our best to help them when we play all these NFC East teams.
"I am proud of him and I love him."
