Peyton Manning continues his march toward touchdown record

peyton AP

Peyton Manning is closing in on taking the NFL record for most touchdown passes in a season back from Tom Brady.

On the first drive of Thursday night’s Chargers-Broncos game, Manning marched Denver’s offense down the field on a drive that culminated in a touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell, Manning’s 46th touchdown pass of the season.

Brady set the current NFL record of 50 touchdown passes in a season in 2007, breaking a record that previously belonged to Manning, who threw 49 touchdown passes in 2004. Now Manning is just five away from breaking Brady’s record.

Manning now looks like a lock to break Brady’s record. With a few touchdowns to spare.

    Congratulations on Andy Dalton’s former #3 wide receiver andre caldwell on his 7 receptions and 120 yards since not being re-signed by the Bengals two years ago.

    Dalton and his 16 interceptions.

    Has Peyton ever had a team with bad WR’s? I would love to see what his stats and record would be if he was the Patriots QB this year.

    It actually wouldn’t surprise me to see this record be broke every other season or so during the next decade plus. With so many rules favoring offenses and coordinators willing to sling it. We’ve already seen an increase in 5,000 yard passers.

    andre caldwell Denver Statistics (w/ Peyton Manning):

    2012 = 1 catch – 18 yards – 2.3 yards per game

    ^ your team sucks. Get over it

  7. thefiesty1 says: Dec 12, 2013 8:54 PM

    Of course, he may hit 50 tonight. Irsay and the colts blew it.

    And just who is he going to knock off the field between welker, Thomas, decker?

    Concentrate on sending vibes to your boys to actually win a playoff game.

    andre caldwell Cincinnati Statistics (w/ Andy Dalton):

    2008 = 11 catch – 78 yards – 11.1 yards per game
    2009 = 51 catch – 442 yards – 27 yards per game
    2010 = 25 catch – 345 yards – 23 yards per game
    2011 = 37 catch – 317 yards – 24.4 yards per game

    Either Andy Dalton is better than Peyton Manning… or… Andy Dalton has been forced to play with inferior #2 and #3 wide receivers his whole career.

    congrats to Peyton if he hits it. I’m a Pats fan and would have loved to see them win the last game then for brady to have the record.

    More proof that this season won’t end with a Peyton Super Bowl title

  12. tuberippin says: Dec 12, 2013 9:10 PM

    ^What are you expecting? Caldwell isn’t a great receiver, but in terms of targets, he’s behind Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Eric Decker, and Wes Welker in the pecking order (and now Jacob Tamme too, as he’s always been a favorite of Peyton’s, much like Brandon Stokely was for years). Not to mention that Montee Ball and Knowshon Moreno get a decent number of screen passes as well. With all the weapons in that offense, he’d understandably be hard-pressed to get more than a few receptions.

  13. bleedgreen1988 says: Dec 12, 2013 9:12 PM

    @doctorrustbelt… and congrats to you for going through the effort of looking up his stats since he left the Bengals.

  14. theptfpoet says: Dec 12, 2013 9:19 PM

    That’s 8 more TDs than Christian Ponder has thrown in his entire career.

  15. moerawn says: Dec 12, 2013 9:19 PM

    Be tough to do tonight, since Denver can’t get the ball.

  16. snaxdsp says: Dec 12, 2013 9:25 PM

    Maybe he will have another unapproved medical procedure out if the country and throw 60 next year

  17. lingsun54 says: Dec 12, 2013 9:29 PM

    It’s not that important. The rules have changed so much that 4 of the 5 quarterback leaders for TD’s in a season all played in the last 10 years.

  18. dudermcrbohan says: Dec 12, 2013 9:38 PM

    stats are for losers

  19. akshunj says: Dec 12, 2013 9:41 PM

    QB stats should come with an asterisk, since the defense is practically handcuffed.

  20. brazzz01 says: Dec 12, 2013 9:47 PM

    I’m outraged at the Chargers. Gimme a break. Do they actually want a spygate-tainted record to be on the books? It’s disgusting. Geez – just get out of the way and let Manning get it DONE!

  21. jbaxt says: Dec 12, 2013 9:55 PM

    Congrats Peypey, all stats, all hype, and nothing to show for it. One and done in the playoffs. Josh McDaniels and Tebow are laughing. Tebow calls it Karma.

  22. ajgreenhof says: Dec 12, 2013 10:14 PM

    @doctorrustbelt

    Did anyone think Caldwell was going to be good? Why are you bragging?

    Every time a bronco defensive lineman makes a tackle, they celebrate like they just won the lottery.

    peyton manning continues throwing costly interceptions late in big games.

  26. realfootballfan says: Dec 12, 2013 11:18 PM

    This is clearly what’s important to him because instead of getting well for a Super Bowl run, he’s more content with being hobbled to get a meaningless record. You can’t heal up in January, Peyton, unless I guess you count another one and out playoff loss after you didn’t take time to get your body rested now. Absolutely idiotic, and I can’t believe John Elway is going along with this as the Broncos have clearly not been the same team since Manning suffered that ankle sprain that has him hobbled.

  27. randymossblewit says: Dec 12, 2013 11:22 PM

    He also continues his march toward another one and done in the playoffs.

  28. mzew233 says: Dec 12, 2013 11:25 PM

    Thats too bad.
    After Tom went down in 2008, and the way the dealt all of their WRs off like Moss, Welker, etc..
    Brady will likely never be in position again to get to 50.
    A 4th ring is the only thing that would be any consolation and look like its on its way.

  29. duffelbagsports says: Dec 12, 2013 11:25 PM

    And he’ll still have a losingplayoff record. Hejust doesn’t show up in big games given his reputation. If I’m Brady I’ll take my head to head record over Peyton 11-4.

  30. chargersdiehard says: Dec 13, 2013 12:13 AM

    Broncos are one and done in playoffs. Admit it.

  31. natelan69 says: Dec 13, 2013 12:29 AM

    One and done.

  32. joetoronto says: Dec 13, 2013 4:13 AM

    One record Peyton will always have is the amount of 1 yard TD passes.

    There’s no better way to trump up those numbers.

  33. tatum064 says: Dec 13, 2013 5:14 AM

    Meanwhile, scoreboard Chargers.

  34. eagleswin says: Dec 13, 2013 6:12 AM

    Did you ever notice that everywhere Manning goes everything is always about him?

    Except when they are one and done in the playoffs, then it’s all about the team.
