Last week, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning made history yet again in his career when he threw for his 51st touchdown pass of the season, thus breaking the previous mark set by Tom Brady in 2007. But Manning broke the record with one game left int he season and has since added to the mark against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Manning threw not only his 52nd touchdown pass of the season to Knowshown Moreno in the first half, he hooked up with Eric Decker for his 53rd touchdown pass of the season as well.
Don’t think of Manning as running up the record, as he’s not playing for no reason against Oakland. Not only would he like to get the record as high as possible, the Broncos still don’t have the No. 1 seed in the AFC wrapped up yet and need Manning to guide them to a win to make sure that happens.
The only way Manning knows how to win is by throwing touchdowns and the 53 he already has likely won’t be the only ones he ends up with when the day is done.
