After throwing yet another touchdown on a play that worked exactly as it was drawn up, Peyton Manning ran to the end zone and head-butted the lucky receiver, running back Lance Ball. That was about as rough as things got for Manning on Sunday — an afternoon he spent piling on in the second half instead of catching up. Off to a fast start for the first time as a Bronco, Manning led Denver to three third-quarter touchdowns in a 37-6 rout over the Oakland Raiders — the first time Denver has beaten its AFC West rival at home since 2007. Denver (2-2) outscored the Raiders 27-0 in the second half. "He's getting more comfortable," coach John Fox said. "Let's not forget he didn't play for over a year and this is a new team, new coaching staff, new city, new field, new everything for him. The type of guy he is, he's going to get better and better."

Robertson, a former Republican candidate for president, called the election important, but didn't mention either major political party or candidate by name.
