Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning produced the 38th fourth-quarter comeback of his career as he maintained an unbeaten record against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Manning responded to two interceptions by throwing for three touchdowns and 291 yards to turn a three-point deficit into a 31-23 victory.

Eric Decker caught two touchdown passes from Manning, who also hit tight end Joel Dreessen in the fourth quarter with the score that put the icing on the cake for the Broncos.

Trindon Holliday helped Manning out as he returned the second-half kick-off 105 yards for a team record touchdown to put them 17-3 in charge.

Second-year man Andy Dalton was doing his best to keep pace with Manning and he made some great throws during the game as he recorded 299 yards passing with one touchdown and one interception.

A.J Green is by far his favourite receiver and he caught the TD grab from 10 yards while BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran in the other score for the Bengals.

Manning had the final word though as he led Denver to a fourth win in five as he continues to get better every week now he has fully settled in to life back in the NFL following a career-threatening neck injury.
