Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning throws against the Philadelphia Eagles in the first quarter of their NFL football game in Denver September 29, 2013.

Peyton Manning is four games into his 16th season and the 12-time Pro-Bowler has never looked better. On Sunday, Manning kept the Broncos perfect during their fourth win of the year as they routed the Philadelphia Eagles by an embarrassing 52-20.

Manning has thrown 16 touchdown passes in the first month of this season — an NFL record. Four of them came on Sunday, when Manning also tied Milt Plum as the only other quarterback to throw as many touchdowns without an interception. To top that off, the Broncos are leading the NFL with an average of 44.8 points per game.
