Pretty sure 16 TD's thrown in the first 4 games is the most for any QB. Offensively Denver has too many weapons. Defense is fast and athletic and have been without a guy who was the consensus second best defensive player in the league last year. Not to mention Champ. Once they come back are already solid looking defense is going to look even better.
Seattle has faced tougher comp but they haven't played as good. I have Newton on my fantasy team so watched his game against them and that was an ugly game that coulda went either way. Just because Denver is playing inferior competition but running them out of the stadium doesn't make them worse.
I honestly think the Seahawks defense is better than the Broncos offense. We have 3 (not 2) cornerbacks that are very good, matching up with Welker, Thomas, and Decker. 2 great safeties and a strong pass rush we should be able to stop Manning. Our run defense is also strong, I don't see Manning dominating our defense or even having a 'good' game.
I also think the Seahawks offense is better than you give them credit for. They are starting off slow but this is the same offense that averaged over 30 points per game over the 2nd half of the season. Once Percy Harvin returns (or even before) we are going to be very dangerous on offense
