The Peyton Manning show rolls along on Sunday, this week against the Oakland Raiders in the final game of the regular season, and it’s the same old story for one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

So far in the first half, the Broncos are having their way with the division rival Oakland Raiders, to the tune of 24-0 in the second quarter and that Oakland secondary is not having an easy time dealing with Manning, much like everyone else this season.

Already with two touchdown passes in the game in the first half, pushing his total to 53 on the season, Manning decided it was time for a third.

And as opposed to the first two short ones, this one was a patented bomb, 63 yards to be exact, to one of his favorite targets, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas:


If the holes are going to be there in the Raiders’ secondary, this is going to be a long afternoon, although I would think John Fox might consider sitting his QB in the second half.
