NFL: Broncos QB Peyton Manning Throws 7 TD Passes, Ties Record

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw for seven touchdown passes -- tying an NFL record -- in the Broncos' 49-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens in the 2013 season opener on Thursday.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw for seven touchdown passes on Thursday, tying an NFL record. 

Manning got the 2013 NFL season off to a rousing start with his sterling performance in a 49-27 rout of the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. The seven touchdown passes marks the first time it has been accomplished since Joe Kapp of the Minnesota Vikings did it 44 years ago -- on September 28, 1969. 

What's even more remarkable is Manning didn't throw a single interception on this night. Y.A. Tittle of the New York Giants last pulled it off on October 28, 1962. They are the only NFL players to have done this, per NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

According to ESPN, the game also saw Manning tying Brett Favre's NFL record by throwing for at least four touchdowns in 23 career games. He and the New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees now both have seven career games where each of them threw for at least five touchdowns. 

Mike Klis of the Denver Post recalls each of Manning's seven touchdown passes:

"But Manning threw his first two touchdown passes to young tight end Julius Thomas, who entered the game with one career catch in two NFL seasons. The third scoring pass went to No. 4 receiver Andre Caldwell, who had just one catch last season.

"Once he had the Ravens' defense loosened up, Manning went to his more expected target of Welker for two short scoring passes. Then he hit Demaryius Thomas early in the fourth quarter for another TD. And he capped his night with another TD pass to Thomas, this one for 78 yards." 

Manning then shared his sentiments with NBC once the game ended. 

"It was an awesome night. 

"We had to be patient. We were great down in the red zone. And we had to take shots. Thirty to 35 yards out, we took some shots, and our receivers made some great plays." 

He capped off his historic evening by going 27 for 42 for 462 yards.

Kansas State Accused Auburn of Stealing Signals

Sep 19 2014 10:05am CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Kansas State changed their offensive signals at half-time against Auburn, after coach Bill Snyder accused the Tigers of stealing them. Auburn was notably accused of doing that during last year’s BCS title game. Once Florida State began covering their play calls with towels, they mounted a major comeback from a 21-3 deficit. The point of signals is to mask what you are doing. Failure to do so is your own fault. While Auburn may have been stealing signals, their duplicity had not ...

The Notebook: Offensive trickery and next level play design

Sep 19 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

Sending a speedster on a go route isn't the only way to get a big play these days. Retired NFL defensive end Stephen White looks at some of the ways offensive coordinators are making life tougher for opposing defenses. Every offense would like to have explosive plays in the passing game and connect on some deep balls, but its not always as simple as sending a wide receiver out on a go route. Because of the ...

Week 3 NFL Picks: Examining the Trends and Line Movements

Sep 19 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Although you can't get a complete read on any team after two games, fans around the league should be starting to get a better overall grasp on the season outlook. By the end of the first month, each team's direction will likely be pretty clear, barring a major turnaround. One way you can tell the situation is beginning to stabilize is the lack of huge line movements. Not only does it mean some questions are being answered, but it also means the oddsmakers are figuring out which t ...

Fantasy Football Week 3: Updated Rankings for Sunday's Action

Sep 19 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Nothing in fantasy football is given. Owners learned that in Week 2 as a myriad of players left the field, were late scratches or simply laid an egg while lining up on every play. Luckily, the season continues and players can come into Week 3 slightly more prepared. Whether it was Knile Davis, Khiry Robinson or Mohamed Sanu, owners now feel they have struck waiver-wire gold. Several tough matchups have m ...

Matt Ryan, Steven Jackson's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 3

Sep 18 2014 10:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Rarely have you seen fantasy football owners happier to see their starting quarterback removed in the third quarter. Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan only needed a little over three quarters to produce a massive fantasy performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After that, there was no reason to risk his health in the fourth. To a lesser extent, the same could be said of running back Steven Jackson. Thursday's game is suc ...
