Manning Sets Passing Yardage Record

Posted Dec 29, 2013

Before halftime in Oakland, quarterback Peyton Manning set a new single-season NFL record for passing yardage.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The records continue to fall.

Quarterback Peyton Manning, who last week set a new league record for passing touchdowns in a season, now has the most passing yards of any quarterback in a single season in NFL history.

A 5-yard touchdown connection with Demaryius Thomas put Manning over the previous mark of 5,476 yards, set by Drew Brees in 2011.

He beat it by one yard -- his 5,477 yards are the new record. The likely league MVP's day appears to be finished at halftime, as Brock Osweiler started the second half at quarterback.

In the process, the Broncos topped the 18-point mark, which gave the offense the most points scored in a single season in NFL history. The single-season team points record was 589, which the Broncos tied with a 34-yard Matt Prater field goal.

On the very next drive, a 63-yard touchdown from Manning to Thomas gave the Broncos the record.
