So it’s absurd to think Peyton Manning can keep this up, a pace to throw for 112 touchdowns and 7,392 yards this season. Don’t laugh. Defenses sure aren’t.
Tight ends are no longer an afterthought in Denver’s passing game. In 2009, they had all of 27 catches. Last year, that number was just 30 – not a single one of them in the end zone.
