Peyton Manning completed 22-of-30 passes for 305 yards and three touchdowns in Denver's 34-14 Week 8 win over the Saints.

Buoyed by a robust rushing attack, Manning was surgical as the Broncos absolutely wiped out the Saints, rolling up 530 yards of offense to New Orleans' 252. In what's become a common theme, Manning looked every bit his vintage self, and has now thrown for at least 300 yards in five consecutive games. He's posted an eye-popping 14:1 TD:INT ratio over that time period. Tonight's dominant effort came despite a split fingernail on his throwing thumb. Even if Manning's lost a little bit of his zip, he's playing as well as he ever did in Indy. The Broncos are going to waltz to the AFC West title. The Bengals are on tap for Week 9.
