Vols In NFL Playoffs Update

Ravens top Broncos in double OT 38-35

In a thrilling, over four-hour, double overtime game to begin the NFL Divisional Playoff Weekend, the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Denver Broncos 38-35 on a 47-yard field goal.

Five NFL Vols took part in the game.

For Denver: Robert Ayers, Britton Colquitt, Malik Jackson and Peyton Manning.
For Baltimore: Morgan Cox

Peyton Manning finished his 2012 comeback season with a 28-for-43, 290 yard effort tossing three touchdowns but also two interceptions, one of which led to Baltimore's game winning field goal in double-overtime.

Manning moved into a tie with Dan Marino for the fourth-most playoff touchdowns thrown (32) and his three TD effort marked the 10th time this season that he has accomplished the feat. His three touchdowns also tied a Broncos single-playoff game record set by John Elway who did it three times during his Denver career, the last time coming in 1994.
