Peyton Manning Ties Record with 7 TD Passes: NFL News at YouWager

Last night Peyton Manning tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes when the Denver Broncos met the Baltimore Ravens.

YouWager experts have compiled a list of some of the other players with the same record:

Date Player

Thursday Peyton Manning
1969 Joe Kapp
1962 Y.A. Tittle
1961 George Blanda
1954 Adrian Burk
1943 Sid Luckman

The 37 year-old quarterback became the sixth player to throw for that many and the first since Joe Kapp on Sept. 28, 1969.

The rest of the players seem to be a who’s who of passers who defied the 3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust days long before the league became so pass-happy: Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda and Y.A. Tittle.

Manning threw a pair of TD passes each to tight end Julius Thomas, newcomer Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas. The other passes went to Andre Caldwell.

The 12x Pro Bowlers was 27-of-42 for 462 yards with no interceptions for an off-the-charts quarterback rating of 141.1.

Wearing an orange-and-gray glove like the one he wore on that icy January night the previous time these teams met — a victory for the Ravens in the playoffs — Manning took a while to get warmed up versus a Baltimore defense that had to replace seven Super Bowl starters.

Manning ditched the glove once the rains stopped — and then online sports betting experts consider no one could stop him.

The Louisiana native’s seventh TD pass covered only a few yards in the air but Demaryius Thomas, a former first-round pick, hauled in the pass in the left flat and turned on the jets, racing past several gassed defenders for a 78-yard play that ended the Broncos’ big night.
