DENVER (AP) - Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders found their rhythm after an early miscue, connecting for two long touchdowns in the final 67 seconds of the first half of the Denver Broncos' 18-17 preseason loss to the Houston Texans on Saturday night.

Manning was whistled for taunting following his second TD toss to Sanders. The Broncos said that was apparently the first such penalty in the five-time MVP's career.

Manning ran up to D.J. Swearinger and gave an earful to the Texans' swaggering second-year safety who leveled Wes Welker with a forearm to the face one play earlier. Welker, who has a history of head injuries, was evaluated for a possible concussion.

Swearinger was also at the center of several skirmishes during the teams' three days of intense joint practices during the week.
