Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns and Willis McGahee rushed for another as the Denver Broncos rolled over the New Orleans Saints, 34-14, on Sunday.

Manning completed 22-of-30 passes for 305 yards, while McGahee finished with 122 yards on 23 carries for the Broncos (4-3), who have won three of their last four and now own sole possession of first place in the AFC West.

Demaryius Thomas caught seven balls for a game-high 137 yards and a touchdown in the victory.

Drew Brees went 22-for-42 through the air for 213 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for New Orleans (2-5), which had its two-game win streak snapped.

It was the first game for New Orleans under new interim coach Joe Vitt, who was suspended for the season's first six games for his involvement in the Saints' bounty case.

Aaron Kromer guided the team through the first part of the season.
