The Denver Broncos defeated the San Francisco 49ers 42-17 in a record breaking performance by Broncos QB Peyton Manning.
Needing only two TDs to tie Brett Favre’s all-time leading TD record, Manning covered that spread very quickly by tossing two TDs in the first quarter, first to Emmanuel Sanders and later to Wes Welker. After giving up a field goal in the middle of the 2nd quarter, Peyton Manning got the ball back and drove all the way down the field. Thanks to a pair of penalties by the 49ers, Manning was placed within striking distance of the record with just over 3 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, and then he finally broke the record with an 8-yard toe-tapping pass to Demaryius Thomas to give the Broncos a 21-3 lead and give Peyton Manning the all-time touchdown record.
The 49ers never led once in the game and trailed 42-10 going into the 4th quarter when the 49ers finally pulled QB Colin Kaepernick and replaced him with Blaine Gabbert. The backup QB managed to score a TD with 1:00 left in the game to make the final score 42-17.
Peyton Manning had one of the best games of his career – with 4 TD passes and only 4 incompletions in the game. Manning’s 157.2 passer rating was the 6th best of his career and his best as a member of the Denver Broncos.View poll on FanMob
