What Does Single-Season Touchdown Record Mean For Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning?
Record breaking seems to be a weekly occurrence for Peyton Manning, but today’s record wasn’t just any other record. With still another game left on the schedule, Manning has broken the single-season touchdown record, previously held by Tom Brady, with 51 on the season.
Back in 2004, Manning broke the touchdown record previously held by Dan Marino with 49, but it was then broken again by Brady in 2007 with 50. Now, Manning holds the record once again.
This record just about explains what type of season Manning is having. Not only does he have this record under his belt, but breaking the record for the most passing yards in a season is a possibility next weekend with only 266 yards left to go. Not to mention, this was Manning’s first 5,000-yard season of his career, and he could break the record for the most passing yards in a season. Stats like these just boost his chances of winning the MVP for the fifth time.
Overshadowed by the record, the Denver Broncos ended up beating the Houston Texans 37-13, and Manning did throw for 400 yards and four touchdowns on the day, with the four of course being the record breaker to tight end Julius Thomas, who is also having a spectacular year himself.
With a prolific offense led by Manning, the Broncos are not only in a good position to win the AFC this season, but have a strong chance at winning the Super Bowl as well. Getting healthy, especially on the defensive side of the ball, is especially important if they even want to make the trip out east to play in the beloved Big Dance.
