By Simon Evans (Reuters) - Unstoppable Peyton Manning continued his electric start to the NFL season by throwing four touchdown passes as the Denver Broncos moved to 4-0 with a 52-20 crushing of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Manning completed 28 of 34 passes for 327 yards and no interceptions and his work was so effective that he was able to sit out the fourth quarter as the Broncos enjoyed another blowout win. The quarterback's 16 touchdowns in the first four games of the season are a league record for the period since the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970. ...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jeremy Maclin would've been a perfect complement to DeSean Jackson in Chip Kelly's offense - if he wasn't hurt.
There are plenty of familiar story lines heading into Week 4 of the NFL season. The Denver Broncos are looking like a championship team. New Orleans is back on top in the NFC South. Miami appears to be one of those “surprise” teams that could make the playoffs. Oakland is struggling once again. And New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is on the hot seat. [ Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football is open for business ] Coughlin’s teams seemingly start slow every year before sneaking into the playoffs, but that appears very unlikely right now. New York was embarrassed by the Carolina Panthers, 38-0, this past Sunday, and appear to be spiraling out of control. The Giants are averaging only 44.3 rushing yards per game (last in the NFL), their defense has produced three sacks (tied for worst in the NFL) and allowed 38.3 points per game (worst in the league). Meanwhile, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has thrown five touchdowns and eight interceptions and owns a 70.5 passer rating. While the first day of fall indicates September for most people, rumors about Coughlin’s job security is the needle for NFL fans. THIS WEEK'S THREE HOTTEST SEATS 1. Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay After two straight close losses, the Bucs decided to end all suspense and lose 23-3 against the New England Patriots. Former Bucs coach Raheem Morris probably believes he could do more this team than the lackluster squads he was given – and is probably correct. 2. Tom Coughlin, New York Giants New York’s next three opponents are Kansas City, Philadelphia and Chicago. Unless the Giants can pull off an upset, this could be a 0-6 team. 3. Ron Rivera, Carolina Carolina had a strong win heading into its bye week, but this team still has plenty of issues. The Charlotte Observer reported Rivera will not lose his job during the season. That does not mean it will not occur after this year. GETTING WARMER Mike Shanahan, Washington Fred Smoot recently ripped Shanahan , and it is hard to blame him after Washington’s 0-3 start. Shanahan has led Washington to only one winning season in the past four years. It is just a matter of time before Washington general manager Bruce Allen begs Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and coach his team (both men worked together in Tampa Bay). GETTING COLDER Rex Ryan, New York Jets The Jets are 2-1 and Coughlin’s team is 0-3? Now that is something most NFL observers did not foresee prior to this season. - - - Hit us up on Twitter @YShutdownCorner , email us at shutdown.corner@yahoo.com and "Like" Shutdown Corner on Facebook for NFL conversation 365 days a year, the way it should be.
COMMENTARY | An 0-3 start certainly isn't how the New York Giants envisioned the beginning of the 2013 NFL season, and more importantly, neither is the dismal performance of Eli Manning through Week 3.
COMMENTARY | After three weeks of football in this young NFL season, the Washington Redskins' defense has allowed 98 points which, surprisingly, is the second most in the league. Their NFC East rivals, the New York Giants, have given up a league-worst 115 points. After three very poor performances this season, is Jim Haslett's defensive coordinator job in jeopardy?
COMMENTARY | On the eve of the NFL season, if someone had said a New York team would fall victim to woeful quarterback play, a questionable pass rush, no semblance of a running game, and a shaky offensive line, you'd likely shake your head and say, Well, that's the New York Jets.
COMMENTARY | Following an 0-2 start, it doesn't get any easier for the New York Giants as the 2013 NFL season progresses.
COMMENTARY | It was only a few weeks ago that fans of the Cleveland Browns believed that the team could potentially finish the season with a .500 record. The 0-2 Browns have now raised the white flag on the 2013 campaign.
Peyton Manning's primary blindside blocker, Denver Broncos offensive tackle Ryan Clady, was put on injured reserve for the remainder of the NFL season on Wednesday with a left foot injury.
