Peyton Manning’s torrid pace continued on Sunday as his Denver Broncos throttled the Philadelphia Eagles 52-20. Through four weeks, Manning remains the league’s top ranked passer. His quarterback rating of 138 leads all other passers. Through 156 pass attempts, Manning has yet to throw an interception and is completing 75% of his passes. On Sunday, Manning shattered the record for the most touchdowns through the first four games of the year with 16.
Manning has the Broncos offense clicking on all cylinders. Denver has scored 179 points in their first four games and are on pace for 716 total points this season, which would be the all-time single season record.
Manning has been impressive in his first 20 games as a member of the Broncos. He has thrown for 6,129 yards and 53 touchdowns, a mark which is a league record for the most for a player in his first 20 games with a team.
Denver has won 15 consecutive regular season games by 7 or more points. That streak is the second longest in league history. The record is 16 consecutive games, a mark set by the 1941-42 Chicago Bears. A mark that might end up falling in the next few weeks with Dallas and Jacksonville looming on the schedule.
Pregame.com reported this morning that at this moment, the line on the Jaguars Broncos game would make Jacksonville 28 point underdogs.
