Eagles vs. Broncos 2013: Denver and 'everyone else'

Justin Edmonds

Denver rolled over Philadelphia, winning with ease in the Mile High city.

The Denver Broncos continued to hammer everybody in their path on Sunday, beating the Philadelphia Eagles 52-20 at Sports Authority Field.

Peyton Manning looks unstoppable, throwing 16 touchdown passes against zero interceptions to start the season. No other quarterback in NFL history has ever had that stat line to begin a campaign.

Denver even showcased balance against the Eagles, rushing for 141 yards while throwing for 331. The Broncos also showed discipline, being flagged only twice for a grand total of 25 yards. Incredibly, Denver only faced eight third downs throughout the contest and converted five of them.

Over at Mile High Report, Kyle Montgomery had a hard time finding the words for what he watched Sunday:

When it comes to the NFL 2013 season, there are the Denver Broncos, and there is everyone else.

They proved that again in Week 4, with the Denver Broncos breaking a franchise points scored record with a 52-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. It was another record-breaking performance by Peyton Manning and company, in more ways than one. The Broncos, led by the phenomenal Peyton Manning, are breaking passing and scoring records personally, as a franchise, and across the NFL, every single week.

On the other hand, Philadelphia is reeling after three consecutive losses to AFC West teams. The Eagles actually had the ball for over 26 minutes, but still had no answer for the Broncos. Special teams were especially crushing, allowing two touchdowns.

Brandon Lee Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation was not happy with Chip Kelly's decision-making:

An annoying part of today's game, though: Chip Kelly's lack of aggressive play. As I documented multiple times in this recap, Chip had the chance to go for it on fourth down but simply didn't. Twice, that meant settling for FGs instead of TDs. No onside kicks or fakes, either. Maybe that's asking for too much but what did they have to lose?
