Forget fast-break football. This was steel-cold efficiency.
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 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 gelding who trots around the Sports Authority Field following touchdowns.

With two TD passes each to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker, Manning completed all but a half-dozen of his 34 throws for 327 yards. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
