Broncos increase advantage 21-6 over Browns after three

Peyton Manning continues to have a big day for the Broncos.


Peyton Manning added to his touchdown total with an eight yard pass to Eric Decker and increased the Broncos lead to 21-6 where it would remain by the end of the third quarter. Manning ended the third with 339 yards of passing while completing 30 of his 39 passes.

The third quarter touchdown was Decker's second of the day to go along with his 65 yards of receiving. Demaryius Thomas leads all receivers with 102 yards and a touchdown catch. Knowshon Moreno has rushed for 51 yards on 16 touches so far.

The only points for the Browns have come off the leg of Phil Dawson so far. Brandon Weeden is 12 of 19 with his arm for 104 yards on the day. Benjamin Watson hasn't caught a pass since halftime but still leads all Browns receivers with three catches on 47 yards after three quarters. Trent Richardson is picking up decent yardage on the ground with 53 yards on nine carries. The Browns held the ball for just short of five minutes in the third quarter.
