Peyton Manning went virtually untouched by Kansas City’s sack-happy defense Sunday night, throwing for 323 yards and a touchdown to lead the Denver Broncos to a 27-17 victory.
Peyton Manning’s four big targets have combined for 30 touchdown catches so far, yet the most important receiver the Denver Broncos have right now isn’t Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker or Julius Thomas.
Individually, their numbers don’t look like much. Collectively, the Broncos running backs are getting closer to giving Peyton Manning the help he needs.
Just two years removed from the neck troubles that weakened his right arm but strengthened his resolve, Peyton Manning is off to the best start by any quarterback in NFL history.
Yes, there were a few flaws among all those touchdowns. Because they’re facing a short work week, the Broncos will only receive a small “corrections reel” that details mistakes they made in their latest runaway win over Oakland.
CBS4’s Tom Helmer heard somewhere that Broncos running backs Ronnie Hillman, Knoshown Moreno and Montee Ball played a game of “rock-paper-scissors” to see who would get the ball at the goal line against the Oakland Raiders.
In their 14th straight regular-season win, the Broncos rolled over the Oakland Raiders 37-21 on Monday night.
It’s hard to imagine what the scoreboard might look like if the Broncos ever do play the perfect game.
Peyton Manning again beat younger brother Eli, throwing two touchdown passes in leading the Denver Broncos past the New York Giants 41-23 on Sunday.
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.
