WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND A LOOK BACK

PEYTON’S PLACE: Denver quarterback PEYTON MANNING threw two touchdown passes in the Broncos’ 27-20 loss to San Diego. Manning now has 47 touchdown passes in 2013, which is already the fourth-most in a season in NFL history.

 

With two games to play in the regular season, Manning needs four more TD passes to surpass TOM BRADY’s single-season NFL record of 50 in 2007.

 

Manning has led the league in touchdown passes three times in his career and can tie DREW BREES, LEN DAWSON, BRETT FAVRE, JOHNNY UNITAS and STEVE YOUNG for the most seasons leading the league in touchdown passes (four).

Three NFL teams – DENVER (453.4), PHILADELPHIA (414.0) and DETROIT (409.6) – are averaging more than 400 total yards per game, which is on pace to tie for the most of any season in NFL history (2011 and 2012).

 

Denver can challenge the single-season record for total yards per game, which was set in 2011 by the New Orleans Saints (467.1).
