FOR THE WIN - During the preseason game between the Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans, Peyton Manning was handed a penalty for taunting.

Manning had been jawing with Texans defensive back D.J. Swearinger early on in the game.

Manning then threw the second of two touchdown passes to Emmanuel Sanders in the second quarter.

Manning then got FED UP with Swearinger's trash talk. While running to the end zone to celebrate, Manning got in the defensive back's face, and, ever so lightly, headbutted him.

Peyton Manning is having NONE of your sass tonight, Mr. Swearinger.

Perhaps unsuprisingly, it's the first such taunting call of his career.
