Broncos vs. Cowboys: 8 Takeaways from Denver's 51-48 Victory
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 51-48, in the best game of the NFL season.

The Broncos continued their winning ways, moving to 5-0 on the season, and increasing their regular-season winning streak to 16 games and counting.

It was the second-highest scoring game since the NFL-AFL merger took place in 1970.

Peyton Manning threw four touchdowns and ran for another, as he continued his scorched start to the season. Before throwing an interception in the second half, the four-time NFL MVP threw for 19 touchdowns without throwing an interception to start the NFL season.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo went toe-to-toe with Manning for most of the game, before succumbing to a late-game interception thrown to Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan. Trevathan's interception with two minutes remaining in the game led to Matt Prater's game-winning field goal as time expired.

There were plenty of highlights in this shootout. What are a few takeaways from the Broncos' 16th straight regular-season victory?
