NFL picks and predictions 2013, Broncos vs. Giants

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Broncos predicted to beat the Giants in Week 2, but Peyton Manning probably isn't predicted to throw seven touchdowns again.

It is always a story when the Manning brothers face off, but the real question is how Peyton Manning will follow up his record tying Week 1 performance when the Broncos go on the road to take on the New York Giants in Week 2. Peyton tied the NFL record with seven touchdown passes as the Broncos rolled over the Baltimore Ravens, 49-27, in a rematch of the 2012 AFC Championship game.

Eli Manning and the Giants had a different outcome in their Week 1 contest against the Cowboys. Eli ended with 450 yards and four touchdowns but also threw three interceptions in the process. The Giants turned the ball over six times in the game, helping the Cowboys to a 36-31 victory.

Many of the predictions coming in for the third "Manning Bowl" are favoring the Broncos. The Giants only garnered four nods total from the writers at CBS Sports and ESPN; three of nine CBS contributors think the Giants will cover the spread. The spread opened favoring the Broncos by 3.5 points and has increased to 5 points at some sites, according to
