IRVING, Texas -- Peyton Manning doesn't play in Arlington for another six days, but the Denver Broncos are up next on the Dallas Cowboys' schedule, so Manning was a popular topic of discussion on Monday. A smiling Jason Garrett looked like a proud father when talking about how well the four-time league MVP is playing. "He's playing quarterback at maybe the highest level it's ever been played," the Cowboys head coach said. "He's been doing it for 15 years. He's a fantastic player. His understanding of the game is second to none. His command is second to none. His ability to positively impact the people around him is second to none. "Physically, he's awfully good. He throws it where he wants to over and over and over again. He throws it on time. He's accurate. He has the ability to make a ton of big plays and very few bad plays. He's playing at as high of a level as the game has ever been played." Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr played against Manning when he was quarterbacking the Indianapolis Colts. Carr said he's honored to get a chance to play against Manning again on Sunday. "He's rolling right now," Carr said. "He has his guys playing well. He's making all his reads. He's not throwing interceptions. It's going to be fun. It's going to be a challenge, but at the same time, that's why you play the game. You want to play against some of the best guys out there. I'm just honored to play against him, a guy you've watched your whole career. "You can have tight coverage but he's going to fit the ball into the window. At the same time, you have to go up there and challenge the receivers." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota

Report: Peyton Manning’s Audibles Were Returned With Shouts of ‘Papa John’s’ from Eagles Defense

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...

Broncos and Manning continue breaking records as they soar over Eagles 52-20

The Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning continued breaking records Sunday as they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 52-20.

The Matchups: The Birds v. The Broncos

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...

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly: Recapping The Birds

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...

Giants counting on brotherly love to close gap in NFC East

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...

Peyton-type time or not, Romo in Manning shadow

Tony Romo had a Peyton Manning comparison dropped on him by his owner in the offseason. Jerry Jones was talking about meeting rooms and film rooms when he said the Dallas quarterback would be putting in ''Peyton Manning-type time'' after he signed the richest contract in franchise history. It's a good thing Jones didn't say anything about Peyton Manning...

Man-O-Manning NFL Week 4 Recap

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.

EST Sports Authority Stadium (Mile High) FOX TV   94WIP Radio 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...

2013 Fantasy Football Week 4: Champs and Chumps

 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/Broncos Verdict? Mercy Killing

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...

A New Era® of NFL Sponsorships

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...

Keep Football Weird

It is hard to believe how in only 2 weeks, I have managed to list nearly 10 weird things and yet I keep finding more weird things about the game. If at any point I fail to find any more weird things, I’ll just make a post that says, “Keep Football Weird: Cancelled” and with much remorse, declare that the game has become completely normal. Until then, I’ll keep typing. 4....
