NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Philadelphia Eagles are the latest to fall victim to Peyton Manning's September domination.

The Bronco's defeated the Eagles 52-20 Sunday to improve to 4-0.

Manning completed 28 of 34 passes for 327 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

He finishes the month of September with 16 touchdown passes, which surpasses the previous September mark of 14 set by Don Meredith in 1966 and then tied by Kurt Warner in 1999.

Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker each caught two Manning touchdown passes helping the Broncos record the largest point total in team history.

Manning also notched his 24th career game with at least four touchdown passes.  The milestone breaks an NFL record previously held by Brett Farve.

Meanwhile, Michael Vick threw for 248 yards and no touchdowns for Philadelphia.

The Eagles have dropped three straight since their season-opening win at Washington.
