The Denver Broncos look like some kind of scoring machine. Peyton Manning keeps throwing touchdowns, the defense keeps getting turnovers, and the Broncos keep blowing people out.
The Philadelphia Eagles were the latest victims. Remember, the Eagles came into the 2013 NFL season with high hopes of being the latest offensive juggernaut to hit the league. The Chip Kelly system were were assured, would be completely different, run too fast to defend, and change the way the NFL game is played. It doesn’t seem to be working that way.
The Denver Broncos have their own version of a quick strike offense and it got the better of the Eagles 52-20 yesterday as Peyton Manning set up a clinic on exactly how the position of quarterback should be played. Four touchdowns from Manning and a couple of scores from a sturdy Denver defense and the Philadelphia Eagles are looking at 1-3 and wondering where their newfangled offense is going.
Manning now has 16 touchdown passes in four games, an unbelievable pace that would be a record setter if it continues. Right now the Broncos have to be considered Super Bowl contenders again.Eric Drouant
