Manning, Broncos handling Saints

DENVER -- The rout is on. The Denver Broncos took a 31-7 lead over the visiting New Orleans Saints barely six seconds into the fourth quarter. This game has been much easier than anticipated for Denver.

Denver's defense has been tremendous against quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints. The Broncos this season have been a second-half team, but today has been a complete team effort.

Peyton Manning has thrown for three touchdown passes and Willis McGahee also has scored a rushing touchdown.
