Broncos Vs. Falcons Update: Manning Intercepted Twice Early

Peyton Manning is not looking very good in the early going against the Altanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome on Monday Night Football.

After slicing up the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night in the season opener, Manning has already been interceptied twice by Atlanta.

The first turnover was courtesy of William Moore on the first Denver drive of the game. Moore was able to theft the future Hall-of-Famer and return it all the way to the Broncos' 1-yard line. Michael Turner was able to punch it in from there, giving Mike Smith's group a 7-0 lead.


The second pick was taken by Thomas DeCoud on Manning's second possession. It wasn't a tough play for DeCoud, with the ball being thrown right into his waiting arms. The miscue gave Atlanta the ball at Denver's 43-yard line.


All in all, Manning is 1-of-4 for 5 yards and two INT's.
