Must Have Been Out Of My Mind

I must have been out of my mind when I wrote yesterday's post predicting an upset win for the Philadelphia Eagles... There was an upset alright!! My upset stomach as I watched my Eagles lose to the Denver Broncos, 52-20.....

Peyton Manning made quick work of the Philadelphia Eagles in a warp-speed game between the NFL's top two offenses, both of which like to snap the ball quickly.

The Denver Broncos scored more points than they ever had in their 54-year history on Sunday, blowing out the Eagles 52-20 behind Peyton Manning's four touchdown throws and two special teams scores.

''Might have to give old Thunder an IV after this one,'' Manning said of the white Arabian horse who trots around the Sports Authority Field following touchdowns.
If there's any IV bags left, that is. The Eagles are all hooked up to them!

With two TD passes each to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker, Peyton Manning completed all but a half dozen of his 34 throws for 327 yards.

Denver cruised past the Eagles so fast and so furious...Peyton Manning  didn't even step on the field in the fourth quarter and cooled his jets on the sideline for a 12-minute stretch in the first half, no less.

Just another day in the life of Peyton Manning, whose 16 TD passes are the most in the first month of a season, besting the previous mark of 14 set by Don Meredith in 1966 and tied by Kurt Warner in 1999.
Manning also joined Milt Plum in 1960 as the only quarterbacks to throw that many touchdown passes without an interception.
''We have high expectations for ourselves and want to go out there and score a lot of points,'' Welker said. ''We were able to do that today.''
Just as they have all season, piling up 49, 41, 37 and 52 points, thanks mostly to Manning, who's off to the best start of his storied career and helped Denver outgain Michael Vick and the Eagles 472 yards to 450.

And that's all that needs to be written about yesterday's game...Glad I'm not a gambler...I'd of gotten took as they say.

What a way to start the week...but in Philadelphia....We are kind of used to it!
