Peyton Manning sets TD mark

MONDAY, DEC. 23, 2013

Quarterback Peyton Manning has broken Tom Brady’s NFL record for most touchdown passes in a season with 51. Denver’s Manning did it on a 25-yard pass to Julius Thomas with 4:28 remaining in the game Sunday against the Texans. Just 2 1/2 minutes earlier, he tied the mark with a 20-yard pass to Eric Decker. “I really feel like it’s a team accomplishment, certainly an offensive accomplishment,” Manning said. “There’s a lot of people that played roles in this.” Manning made the throw to Thomas and walked toward the end zone, where his teammates patted him on the head. He then took off his helmet and walked to the sideline, pumping his fist once. His teammates came out to greet him and he gave dozens of high-fives as he grinned and walked to the bench. Manning entered the game with 47 TDs. – AP
