Peyton Manning shredded the Raiders in Denver's 37-6 Week 4 win, completing 30-of-38 passes for 338 yards and three touchdowns.
Like Ben Roethlisberger in Week 3, Manning faced no resistance from the Raiders' pathetic pass defense, doing whatever he wanted in by far his best outing as a Bronco. Manning rarely challenged downfield, however, with a huge chunk of his yards being of the "after the catch" variety. Nevertheless, it was still an extremely encouraging effort following Manning's up-and-down first three games, and featured crisp play throughout, not just in comeback mode. Although it's unquestionable Manning's arm strength is diminished, he certainly still has what it takes to lead the Broncos to an NFC West title. With 25 percent of the season in the books, Manning is on pace for 4,648 yards, 32 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
