Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Peyton Manning threw for 301 yards with a touchdown and Trindon Holliday returned a kick for a score for the second straight week as the Denver Broncos downed the Carolina Panthers, 36-14.

Tony Carter also returned an interception for a score as part of a dominant defensive effort that recorded seven sacks for Denver (6-3), which won its fourth straight.

Manning completed 27-of-38 passes, including nine to Demaryius Thomas for 135 yards.

Cam Newton went 21-for-36 through the air with a pair of touchdown passes to Greg Olson and two interceptions for the Panthers (2-7), who have dropped six of their last seven but were coming off a victory over Washington last week.

Olsen finished with nine receptions for 102 yards and the two scores in defeat.
