Peyton Manning broke the NFL's single season record
for passing touchdowns yesterday in Indy's come from behind victory over the San Diego Chargers. And true to form, the pass that broke the record came on a drive to tie the game and send it into overtime.
After the game, Peyton once again showed enormous class in accepting the gravity of the moment. Yes, he's glad to get the record, but Peyton was even more pleased that his team got a win and locked up the third seed in the upcoming AFC playoffs. Next week, the Colts take on Denver, who are fighting for their playoff life. I hope that Peyton and company put the Broncos out of their misery early and can start getting ready for the playoffs.
Congratulations to Peyton Manning, a former Vol and another great representative of the Volunteers in the NFL.
