MANNING BEING MANNING
In a close fight on the road at San Diego Sunday Peyton Manning continued to do what he does best, helping the Broncos to a 28-20 victory.
During the game:
Manning reached 300 yards passing for the 8th time in Denver's nine games, tying for the most in NFL history at this point (also had 8 in '09). With his 300-yard passing game, Manning extended his NFL record to 80.
Manning also threw for four TDs in the win, the fifth time in nine games while extending his NFL record to 27 games.
Three of Manning's TD passes came in the first half of the game, the 25th time in his career (and third this season) that he has accomplished that feat.
