Bring out the Papa John pizzas and break open the record books; Peyton Manning is coming through with his very own touchdown dance.

Peyton Manning entered Week 16 having already thrown 47 touchdowns for the year and was in clear pursuit of Tom Brady’s single-season TD record of 50 set in 2007. Manning needed 4 TDs to break Brady’s record and did just that and more against the Houston Texans this Sunday.

Manning broke the single-season TD record by literally carving up the Houston Texans top five defense with 400 yards passing and 4 touchdowns. The fourth touchdown of the game to Broncos’ TE Julius Thomas was Manning’s 51st TD pass of the season setting the single-season record.

As always, captain Manning reacted graciously to the accomplishment and felt that the record would be broken once again in the near future.

“I really feel like it’s a team accomplishment – certainly an offensive accomplishment. A lot of people played roles in this. I think it’s a unique thing and a neat thing to be part of NFL history – even if it may be temporary. I personally think all season records are going down – especially if they go to 18 games and there won’t be an asterisk next to them. So, (Tom) Brady will probably break it again next year if not the year after. We’ll enjoy it for as long as it lasts and hopefully the Hall of Fame will just send the ball back once somebody throws for more.”

Peyton Manning mentioned Brady because it was Tom Brady who had broken his old record of 49 in 2004.

With the win, the Broncos win the AFC West for the third consecutive season.

  1. Was there every any doubt he would surpass that mark ? And the single season passing yards’ mark is not beyond his reach either .

  2. Can you say MVP?

    I knew that you could.
