Broncos QB Peyton Manning breaks NFL record on Monday Night
Peyton Manning completed 32-of-37 passes for 374 yards and three touchdowns in the Denver Broncos dominant 37-21 win over the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football. Manning, who has thrown 12 touchdown passes in the first three games of the season, broke the previous record (11), set by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in 2011.
The Denver Broncos are without question the NFL's best offense and are on a record-setting pace thanks to a plethora of talented targets and one of the greatest signal callers of all-time under center. The Broncos loss of their left tackle, All-Pro Ryan Clady, to a season-ending foot injury last weekend only showed up on one play against the Raiders, when defensive end Lamarr Houston beat backup left tackle Chris Clark for Oakland's only sack of the game in the fourth quarter. With matchups against Philadelphia, Dallas and Jacksonville on tap for the next three weeks, Manning and the Denver offense should continue to pile up the fantasy points.
