Denver Broncos set a new team points record as Peyton Manning throws for three touchdowns in a 52-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Peyton Manning has continued his fine start to the season by helping the Denver Broncos set a new team scoring record, crushing the Philadelphia Eagles 52-20 for a fourth successive win.
Denver were quick off the mark as Manning found Wes Welker in the end zone in the fifth minute, before Trindon Holliday completed a 105-yard kickoff return for a memorable second score.
Alex Henery chipped away at their advantage with a pair of field goals and a quick Eagles score saw Chris Polk burst over the line.
Philadelphia were back within a point but only for five minutes before the Broncos struck again, with Knowshon Moreno bundling home close range.
Any hopes of an Eagles comeback were blown away by a dominant Denver third quarter, which saw Manning combine twice with Demaryius Thomas in quick succession.
Welker got his second score soon after as Denver consistently picked holes in the Eagles' defense, with Jeff Maehl's late touchdown proving scant consolation.
