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.More »
