Peyton Manning breaks single-season touchdown record
Peyton Manning has etched his name into the history books again.
The Broncos’ signal caller threw his 51st touchdown pass to eclipse Tom Brady’s single-season record for most touchdown passes in a single season.
Manning completed a 25-yard pass to tight end Julius Thomas with 4:28 left in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 37-13 win over the Texans. He finished the day completing 32 of 51 passes for 400 yards and four touchdowns.
Brady set the record in 2007 during the Patriots’ unbeaten regular season. Manning previously had the record when he threw 49 touchdowns in 2004.
The Broncos (12-3) will travel to Oakland next week.
