Half-Time Report: Denver Broncos move into healthy half-time lead over Arizona Cardinals

The Denver Broncos move into a healthy 23-13 lead over the Arizona Cardinals at half time in the sides' NFL clash at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

A display of standout passing from Peyton Manning has helped the Denver Broncos to a healthy 21-13 half-time lead over the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday's NFL fixture.

The Cardinals were the first side to register points as Chandler Catanzaro converted from 33 yards out to give Arizona a three-point lead in the early stages.

The Broncos moved into the lead with their first scoring move, as Manning picked out Julius Thomas with a seven-yarder, allowing Brandon McManus to kick the score to 7-3.

Arizona responded by moving within a point of the opposition when Catanzaro kicked his second field goal in the first quarter from 48 yards.

The Broncos thought they'd moved back ahead in the second quarter, with Manning on hand again to deliver a standout 77-yard pass into the path of Emmanuel Sanders, who latched on only to see the touchdown chalked off as he moved out of bounds.

The decision wasn't to weigh too heavily though, as the Broncos notched the next points when Demaryius Thomas caught hold of a 31-yard Manning pass to push things to 14-6.

Going into the final five minutes of the first half, the Cardinals showed that they weren't in the mood to give things up easily when Andre Ellington completed a five-yard rush.

Denver came back just before the interval, however, as Thomas and Manning paired up again to complete a touchdown from a monstrous 86 yards, leaving the scores at 21-13 going into the break.
