Nov. 4, 2012 at 4:41 PM

CINCINNATI, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Peyton Manning shook off a pair of late interceptions with three scoring passes Sunday, rallying the Denver Broncos to a 31-23 win over Cincinnati.

Manning was picked off twice in the second half but he recovered to lead the Broncos on two late scoring drives -- the first capped by a go-ahead, 1-yard TD pass to Joel Dreessen with 11:47 remaining.

Manning went 27-of-35 through the air for 291 yards as AFC West-leading Denver (5-3) won its third straight.

Eric Decker made eight grabs for 99 yards with a pair of TDs and Demaryius Thomas collected six passes for 77 yards in the victory.

The Bengals (3-5), meanwhile, continued to struggle, dropping their fourth straight as Andy Dalton went 26-for-42 for 299 yards with a touchdown and interception.
