Many were sitting around and wondering whether or not Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was human, after starting the 2013-14 regular season with an incredible 20 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Throughout Sunday afternoon’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, Manning was continuing to look like he could do no wrong until one crucial mistake early in the fourth quarter.

Manning tried to go deep to Eric Decker from deep inside of Broncos territory, but second-year cornerback Morris Claiborne stepped up in a big way just one week after losing his starting job by picking off Manning and forcing the Broncos quarterback to make his first mistake through the air all year.

The interception ended the longest turnover free streak through the air of his career and left him just three attempts short of Jake Plummer’s Denver Broncos record.

The interceptions led to the Cowboys regaining the lead, but Manning has plenty of time to come back and lead the Broncos into the endzone to continue their unbeaten streak.
