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.

The Denver Broncos will return home Saturday night to battle the Houston Texans fresh off their 34-point drubbing of San Francisco on the road. The Broncos and Texans had some joint practices during the week, and this game should be a good test for both teams. Still, they are two teams going in opposite directions. The Texans are a team in rebuilding mode with journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. On the other hand, the Broncos ...

NFL preseason 2014: Saturday's schedule featuring Peyton Manning against Jadeveon Clowney

Aug 23 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

Many stars will be on the field Saturday, with a matchup of perhaps the greatest quarterback of all time against the top overall pick stealing the show. The NFL preseason is an awful tease. You shake hands like strangers with Week 1 football, exchange small talk, but learn little beyond some familiarity before Week 2. Then you and football become like chums. You don't know much about each other still, but it f ...

Madden 15: Review Scores and Impressions from Around the Web

The moment I saw what Madden 15 had to offer, I got excited for Madden 16. It's not because this year's version is bad. It's actually quite the contrary. The gameplay is so good, I can't wait to see what will happen when the modes and options catch up with the on-field action. How good is Madden 15 for the new-generation consoles? From a gameplay standpoint, it's the best it's ever been. ...

Horse Tracks: Seven things to watch for

Good Morning Broncos Country! 1. Emmanuel Sanders: Sanders missed last weeks game against the San Francisco 49ers with a strained quad, and also missed some practice time this week. However he did participate in practice on Thursday and could go tonight. Sanders has yet to make a catch during the preseason, and only played a handful of snaps during the teams preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. I for one am anxious to see Sanders on the field for the B ...

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers throws for two touchdowns in win

Aug 23 2014 1:43am CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

In Friday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers went 9-of-20 for 139 yards and two TDs. He hit Jordy Nelson in the endzone on one drive, and had a quick strike to TE Andrew Quarless on another passing touchdown. The stats don't do the performance justice, as Rodgers and the rest of the Packers offense looked in midseason form and he's looked great all preseason. The Packers play the Chiefs next game but Rodgers w ...

7 reasons Denver Broncos fans are really the 'best in the NFL'

Aug 22 2014 2:26pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Denver Broncos fans don't just cheer on Sundays...during football season...when the team is winning. WE are fans for life. 24/7. 365 days a year.

Forbes Magazine just bestowed a new title on the Green Bay Packers yesterday and it's not going to go over well in Broncos Country - "Best Fans in the NFL." Excuse me, the Cheeseheads? Forbes ran ...
