The best start of Peyton Manning's career has the Denver Broncos on the verge of team history.
The Broncos will be trying for a franchise-record 15th consecutive regular-season win Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles come to town.
It would tie them for the ninth-longest streak all-time, still a ways back from the league-record of 23 that Manning helped Indianapolis set from 2008-09.
Denver's run of 14 in a row, dating to a loss at New England on Oct. 7, ties the franchise record set from 1997-98 during the team's two Super Bowl-winning seasons. Manning, a Colts rookie in 1998, didn't figure one way or the other into that streak, but his start this year has everything to do with potentially topping it.
"We get to play with one of the greatest quarterbacks and football players to ever play the game," tight end Julius Thomas said. "He's great. There's no other way to cut it up or slice it."

BEST OF MAXIM
Peyton Manning may not be the best quarterback of all time, and the Denver Broncos may not be the best team of all time, but one thing is certain. Both are extremely talented, and Manning is on a mad tear through the NFL. Usually, stats can be spun one way or another. Not so with Manning’s 2013 campaign to this point. Denver’s start quarterback and future Hall of Famer is averaging...

The Denver Broncos aren’t expected to need any excuses when they play a struggling Eagles team this Sunday, but Peyton Manning went ahead and made a few anyway.
“We’re coming off of a short week — it’s nice of the NFL to give Philly  days [off] and give us six,” the Broncos quarterback told reporters Tuesday, according to CSNPhilly.com. “So we’ve got to handle...
Peyton Manning is only getting better with age.
Those surgical scars on his neck are starting to fade like all those fears that he might never be the same quarterback - or even play again - after his right arm shrank from a damaged nerve in his biceps two years ago.
After attacking his rehab as doggedly as he assails defenses, Denver's 37-year-old quarterback is making it hard...

After Week 3’s Thursday night loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the 1-2 Philadelphia Eagles get set to face the offensive juggernaut that is Peyton Manning and the 3-0 Denver Broncos. Best of all, or worst, depending on which team you’re rooting for, the Eagles get the opportunity to face the league’s best team in the mile-high city. Even though the Eagles are one of the best...
The Denver Broncos running back trio used a game of rock-paper-scissors to decide who got to score against the Raiders (Credit: USA Today) Last night’s Monday Night Football game was nothing short of an embarrassment for the Oakland Raiders. Not only did they lose 37-21, but Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense drove down the field at ease in the first half. Manning ended the...

The Eagles are traveling to Denver to face the Broncos this week.
They have, quite literally, NO chance.
To quote Jimmy Kempski:
The Eagles got shredded Week 2 by a QB (Philip Rivers) who got his team up to the line quickly, identified the defense, then checked to a more favorable call. Peyton Manning is the master at that.
To which I say: Yes. Yes, he is.
My prediction? This is...

This week is the start of bye weeks in the NFL, so we’ll be without the presence of Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton this week. Despite one of the best QB’s being sidelined this week, there are still plenty of games to keep our attention.
There are two games that jump off the schedule at first glance. Philadelphia and Denver is definite must-see-TV. The Eagles fast paced offense...
The NFL landscape is never predictable. That’s why it’s so surprising to see so many up in arms about the absolutely tumultuous start to the NFL seasons. The Giants and Steelers are stuck at 0-3 while teams like the Dolphins and the Chiefs are suddenly contenders at 3-0. With so many teams surprising us in both good and bad ways, is there anything we can be sure of heading forward...
