Eli Manning predicted the NFL would match up his team and older brother Peyton’s Broncos early in the regular season. He was right, with Manning Bowl III set for Week 2 at MetLife Stadium in the Giants’ home opener. As the Colts QB, Peyton has beaten Eli in two previous meetings. "We haven’t talked about it a whole lot," Eli Manning said. "Just joking and jabs at each other. Obviously, anytime you play your brother, when I play Peyton in a game, it is special and it is unique." He later added with a chuckle: "Those are great moments that we’ll cherish and hopefully the Giants will get a win for once." Prime-time players Failing to qualify for the playoffs did not strip the Giants of their Super Bowl contender luster. They’ll participate in at least five prime-time games for the second straight season, including their season opener against the Cowboys for the second consecutive year – this time in Arlington, Texas, at Jerry World. "A unique challenge is the opener with Dallas two years in a row — and this time we’re on the road," coach Tom Coughlin said.
