Peyton Manning breaks Drew Brees’ Single-Season Passing record
We all knew it was coming.
An unbelievable year for Peyton Manning keeps getting better as he just broke yet another NFL Record. This time for most passing yards in a season. A record set by Saints quarterback Drew Brees in 2011 with 5,476 yards.
Manning passed the milestone with a five-yard grab from Demariyus Thomas for a Touchdown. He needed just 266 yards to break the record going into the game, and got it with 13 seconds left in the half in Oakland.
It comes just a week after he set a new NFL Record with most touchdowns thrown in a season. He ended last week with 51 touchdown passes, breaking the record set by Tom Brady in 2007. He currently sits at 55.
It’s also likely that Manning has locked up his fifth NFL MVP Award, taking the Broncos to the playoffs in each of his seasons in Denver.
Could Manning’s 2013 be the best season in the history of football by any player? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
