Peyton Manning throws 50th touchdown pass, ties single season record (GIF)


With a week left to go Peyton Manning has tied the single season touchdown record at 50 on the year.

I just posted the article talking about Manning and his 49th touchdown pass going to Eric Decker when I got the news that he has thrown yet another touchdown in this game. With the Kansas City Chiefs trailing the Indianapolis Colts late in the fourth quarter, the Denver Broncos have a great chance at clinching the division and a first round bye.

They are well on their way to picking up both and the celebration could begin. Wide receiver Eric Decker has caught two touchdown passes from Peyton Manning today. You have to imagine either one of these guys will be keeping those game balls as they’re on their way to making history.

Manning has 400 passing yards off 32 of 51 completed passes on the day. Earlier in the game he found Demaryius Thomas for a 36 yard touchdown strike. The last two have gone to Decker for 10 and 20 yards in the fourth quarter to extend their lead.
