For the first time since Week 10 of the 2010 season, back when he was the QB of the Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning failed to throw a TD pass in a 24-17 win over the Buffalo Bills – ending his streak at 51 consecutive starts with a TD pass and preserving the record of 54 held by New Orleans Saints starting QB Drew Brees.
Manning struggled throughout the game against the Bills and finished 14-of-20 for 173 yards and two interceptions. It was the first time since 2009 – back when the team was 14-0 and resting starters – that the NFL’s all-time leader in TD passes threw for 200 yards or fewer in consecutive weeks. Manning also struggled in last week’s loss against the St. Louis Rams.
Manning wasn’t concerned however. He said to the Denver Post, “I’ve broken a lot of records and set a lot of records due to playing for a long time and playing well at times, but it’s never been something that I’ve been about. So I don’t need to break or set another record. It was important to get a win tonight.”
Earlier in the season in a win over the San Francisco 49ers Manning broke Brett Favre’s record for all-time TDs thrown, and he’s still more than 130 TDs ahead of any active QB.
