It was just last week when the Broncos' narrow win over the woeful Jets convinced a considerable portion of Twitter Nation that Denver was overrated. No more: Last night's superlative 42-17 crushing of the excellent San Francisco 49ers not only saw Peyton Manning setting the all-time touchdown pass mark, but also featured the kind of performance fans have been waiting all year to see. Simply put, the Broncos were great on every level.
But even before this Thursday's huge matchup against Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers looming, has Denver already established itself as the class of the NFL likely to make it back to the Super Bowl? Some answers can be found in this week's top twenty tweets, illustrated by images from the victory. Check them out below.
I think this is the year Peyton wins his 2nd Super Bowl, honestly. They're dominant

I wasn't very happy with Peyton Manning after the Super Bowl last year, but I watched the game last night and I've regained hope in him.
