  • Sorting the Sunday Pile: Peyton Manning's prolific pace

    "Anyone with two eyes and a heart was rooting for overtime on Sunday afternoon in Dallas, as the Broncos and Cowboys emptied their respective holsters in an epic 51-48 Denver victory. If you somehow missed it, yes, Peyton Manning was marvelous once again.

    Just as he has all season, Manning manipulated defenses, diagnosed coverages and made perfect throws en route to a monster game. He had the Cowboys defense so wrapped around his little finger that everyone from Monte Kiffin to CBS' camera man bit like crazy when he busted out a naked boot and trotted into the end zone to put the Broncos up 28-17.

    Somehow the most shocking moment wasn't Manning's touchdown run. Instead it came when Peyton finally looked human and threw his first interception of the season. Manning underthrew Eric Decker in a sunny section of the JerryWorld field and was picked by Morris Claiborne, forcing him to fall short of Jake Plummer's Broncos record for most consecutive passes (229) without a pick.

    That's good for Claiborne because he was abused the rest of the day, along with the rest of Monte Kiffin's defense. They, like everyone else the Broncos have seen, simply had no answer for Manning.

    What Manning's doing right now is maestro-esque and it's simply magical. At the age of 37, not too long removed from a quartet of neck surgeries, Manning is playing quarterback as well as anyone in the history of the game"...

    The only thing I can think of after reading that excerpt is, "Wow, Plummer still has a record that Manning hasn't broken yet."

      " They've already scored more points in five games than the 2012 Chiefs scored all season."

        Denver's on pace for 736 points, which wouldn't just beat the NFL record for points scored, it would absolutely shatter it. The 2007 Patriots -- remember them? -- scored 539 in a season with Tom Brady. If Denver kept up this pace they'd be the first team to cross the 600-point barrier and the first team to pass the 700-point barrier. It's football's version of ludicrous speed.

            Insane, but also wrong. The '07 Pats scored 589 points, not 539
