It was billed as a meeting between the top two offenses in the NFL. Only one showed up.
Peyton Manning remained perfect, throwing four touchdowns and no interceptions. The Denver Broncos remained perfect, winning their fourth game in four chances, steamrolling the Philadelphia Eagles 52-20 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Just how bad did it get for the Birds? Their starters on offense were actually outscored 14-13 by Denver's special teams, while both clubs' backup quarterbacks made appearances in the game.
Simply put, the Broncos are in a separate class from most of the NFL, especially rebuilding teams like the one from Philly. That played out on the field today, as Manning and company completely embarrassed the Eagles on a national stage.
The Broncos move to 4-0 on the season, and you have to wonder if anybody can hang with them. The Eagles drop to 1-3, but remain only one game out of first place in the NFC East. Scroll through the live blog for more analysis of this absolute massacre.
