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.

It's been no secret that our very own offensive line coach CH74 is not a fan of Paul Cornick, and his review of Cornick's performance in the Niners game is no different. But take solace, Broncos Country, the O-Line is actually looking good despite this, says CH74. Whoaaaa Nellie! While just about every aspect of the Broncos' performance on Sunday night met and/or exceeded expectat ...

Broncos Can Use Statement Game Thursday as Launch Pad to Greatness

Oct 23 2014 6:09am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It’s safe to say the Denver Broncos are the best team in the NFL through seven weeks, but their Week 8 adversary is certainly a worthy opponent. The San Diego Chargers are 5-2 and have one of the few quarterbacks in the league today that can go toe-to-toe with Peyton Manning—Philip Rivers. There would be no shame in a loss Thursday night, but if that were to happen, the Broncos would merely be one of a handful of ...

Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 8: Julius Thomas

Oct 23 2014 6:04am CDT | Source: SBNation

You're obviously starting Julius Thomas even after a letdown in Week 7, but is he going to have a big fantasy bounce-back game? Fantasy owners of Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas finally dealt with some disappointment on Sunday Night Football. In his first game without a score, he only had four catches for 27 yards. Thomas was on pace for 28 TDs before this dud, and he'll look to get back in the end zone in Week 8 against the San Diego ...

My favorite NFL story in recent memory has to be the rumors surrounding the Percy Harvin trade, specifically the report that the Seahawks tried to dangle the disgruntled wide receiver in front of the Denver Broncos in hopes of landing Julius Thomas in a deal.  Any fantasy owner worth his or her salt could tell you that such a deal would be ridiculous. Heck, anyone who has actually watched football this yea ...
