Peyton Manning needs six touchdowns to break the NFL single season touchdown record that Tom Brady holds, and after his first drive of tonight’s game against the San Diego Chargers, he only needs five. Manning got the Broncos an early lead with a perfect touchdown pass to wide receiver Andre Caldwell.
One of the great things about Manning this season is that he seemingly can do no wrong. While he boasts one of the most impressive wide receiving corps in NFL history, Manning will throw the ball to just about anyone and make them look like stars. This is a trait we’ve seen in Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers but Manning is making it look like he could turn you fifth grade history teacher into a Hall of Famer.
Caldwell isn’t on many fantasy teams and he’s not hinting for a huge contract in the offseason. But he’s one of the many receivers the Broncos have that Manning can make look good, as he continues to throw the ball to anyone capable of catching it.
