A once promising season keeps getting worse as the Philadelphia Eagles found themselves on the bleeding end of a 52-20 beating at the hands of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Chip Kelly’s boys kept it close early, getting to within one points of the Broncos in the second quarter, before the wheels fell off of the cart. The Eagles didn’t score again until quarterback Michael Vick was benched late in the game in favor of backup Nick Foles. Vick finished the day having gone 14/27 and throwing for 248 yards.
Peyton Manning continues having a stellar season, going 28/34 for 327 yards and 4 touchdowns. Manning now has 16 touchdowns on the season and 0 interceptions.
Thankfully for the Eagles, the rest of the NFC East continues to stink, with the Dallas Cowboys falling to the San Diego Chargers and the New York Giants losing their fourth game of the season to Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Washington Redskins were able to grab their first win of the season over the Oakland Raiders.
Next week, the Eagles will try to bounce back against the winless Giants when they travel to up to East Rutherford.

The Eagles defense became the latest victims in a long line of NFL teams unable to stop Peyton Manning from absolutely dominating on the field, but it wasn’t for a lack of creative effort on their part.
The Broncos steamrolled Philadelphia 52-20, and when they failed to lay actual hits on the Denver signal caller to limit the damage, they went with a different method of attack...
The Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning continued breaking records Sunday as they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 52-20. This was Denver’s 15th straight regular-season win, which broke the Broncos’ record of 14 set in the 1997-1998 season. Denver’s 52 points Sunday was the most in their 54-year history. This was the Broncos’ fourth consecutive blowout win. In […]
Welcome back! It’s finally Sunday, and this week the Birds are in Denver. Now, if you’ve suffered through the endless cycle of pro-Manning propaganda as I have, you know that the Eagles have no chance. Really. They should not have left PHI. This was an expenditure that Lurie did not have to make. They stand not a chance in this endeavor. Manning is going to throw mad TDs while...
So that wasn’t pretty. Not in the slightest. Peyton Manning and his band of merry men throttled the Eagles 52-20.
On the Eagles side, there was not much good to be had. The offense didn’t look sharp, the defense was gashed (and gassed), and the special teams got burned.
The Eagles stand at 1-3 with a quarter of the season gone. The question becomes, where do the Eagles go from...
If the New York Giants have any chance of salvaging this season, it sounds like the team believes it will have to pin their slim hopes on the broad shoulders of a Manning or two. If there was ever a good time for Giants quarterback Eli Manning to cash in on a family favor — it couldn't have come at a better time than this weekend. As the Oh-and-four Giants regroup after...
The Denver Broncos rolled the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday with a 52-20 victory, setting a franchise record for most points scored in a game. With the victory, the Broncos moved to 4-0 on the season. Peyton Manning, who was taken out of the game with 22 seconds left in the third quarter,
We’re a month into the NFL season minus the Monday Night Football match up featuring the New Orleans Saints hosting the Miami Dolphins. Here are my random thoughts and observations on each game.
Philadelphia @ Denver Peyton Manning doesn’t need any help but he will gladly take it. Broncos kick returner Trindon Holliday took a kickoff to the house and Steven Johnson returned...

The Broncos are 10-point favorites in this one mostly because the pundits look at Philly's poorly-rated pass defense and they expect Peyton Manning to have possession of the ball for at least 12 series. That's a...
Usually in the NFL we know who the elite teams are, but sometimes we have a hard time defining exactly what that means. Do elite teams have shutdown defenses, high-octane offense and great kickers on special teams? Well, as we’ve seen this year, there’s no one qualification.
The Denver Broncos, for example, are the hottest team in football. Peyton Manning is putting up touchdowns...
Quarterback Champs: Peyton Manning- 28/34, 327 yards, 4 TDs-29 fantasy pointsThis is getting a bit ridiculous because Peyton literally looks the best he’s ever looked. Every time you punt to that well-oiled machine, you might as well chalk up seven. Peyton’s got 16 TDs and 1470 yards (on pace for 5880 yards and 64 TDs) and the Broncos are sporting a cool 45-point average...
Eagles 20, Broncos 52, Sunday, September 29, 2013
Why the title of this post? That was my thought when John Fox took Peyton Manning out of the game early in the fourth quarter.
I mean, come on, we all knew this was going to be ugly. But this was UGLY. U-G-L-Y you ain’t got no alibi UGLY.
Stud of the week: seriously, dude, I don’t even know. Everything was a mess. The offense...
Yesterday we told you about someone screaming “Papa John’s” as Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning called out an audible. Now it isn’t entirely clear who made the call, but I’d be willing to bet it was a bunch of clever Eagles defenders trying to screw with Peyton. Pretty funny, but let’s also focus on the economic issue in play here: a company inadvertently received free...
The Seattle Seahawks have proverbially shaken off their detractors with a nothing-than-dramatic comeback victory in overtime against the Houston Texans.Russell Wilson and Seattle have been the media darling of the NFL this season, along with the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning, but one thing that critics and analyst have repeatedly pointed out is the difference between Seattle...
Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles fell to 1-3 and after a 52-20 road loss to Denver. Peyton Manning dissected the Eagle defense as if they were a sophomore biology frog, removing the heart, the brain and the central nervous system in quick order on the way to 28-34 passing, 327 yards and four touchdowns.
Oregon great Jeff Maehl had his first two catches and first touchdown...
