NFL News: Peyton Manning Makes History, Completes 7,000 Passing Yards
With the ten-yard pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders half-way through the third quarter, history was made at the Arrowhead Stadium. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning notched up another record in NFL by eclipsing 7,000 career passing yards.
Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Brett Favre holds the record with 71,838 career passing yards, and Manning is now only next to him, closing in on surpassing that horizon. With more than two years likely remaining in his career, Manning is expected to break Favre’s record.
The Denver Broncos defeated The Kansas City Chief 31-24 in the NFL match last night. Manning accumulated 100 passes without a touchdown before he hit Sanders for a six-pointer. The Denver superstar has never thrown 100 passes without a touch-down in his career.
Specialists were of the opinion that at 39 years of age, Manning’s arms are letting him down. In the fourth quarter one of his passes were intercepted for a touch-down, shadowing his achievements a bit.
“To be able to win two games in this fashion, you can always refer back to games like this later on in this season,” Manning said.
“These are obviously great times to play football,” Manning added. “To win a division game on the road, a great atmosphere, this place is always a great place to play football, and the crowd was rocking Thursday, they were into it. … Yeah, I think this is one that you always remember, certainly the way it ended.”
