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.

Coaching to Blame for Denver Broncos' Defensive Struggles Sunday

Nov 4 2014 7:45am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

In a 43-21 rout by the New England Patriots, the Denver Broncos had issues on offense, defense and special teams. It’s not often that a team as good as the Broncos loses, and it’s hard to point the finger at one particular unit as to why. Although it was a team loss if there ever were one, the most concerning performance was that of a defense that came into the game as one of the best in the league—ranked ...
