Peyton Manning Breaks Touchdown Record, Once Again Part of NFL History

Another record is held by Peyton Manning.

The Denver Broncos quarterback broke Tom Brady‘s single season touchdown record with a touchdown pass to Julius Thomas. Brady was able to get the record in 16 games, but it only took 15 games for Manning to accomplish the feat.

This has been such a remarkable season for Manning. Knowing that the Broncos were going to be a Super Bowl or bust team, Manning has had a season to remember for his career. This game has further solidified his place in Canton, Ohio, when it comes time to retire. I believe that Manning is so deserving of this record with the season that he has had. He has done so much for the Broncos since coming over from the Indianapolis Colts and going through so much with the neck surgeries and the release from his former team. He was given a chance to play again and the Broncos have been rewarded greatly so far.

Even though Manning has the individual record, he is such a class act and said that the record was a team effort. This just further shows that Manning is perhaps one of the greatest players to play the game all time in any position. Now with that record in the books, Manning is looking towards the second ring and winning the Super Bowl and with how this season has gone, I would not doubt it at all.
