>ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- History is getting a second look.
>Peyton Manning's stat line from the Denver Broncos' 34-14 win Sunday over the Oakland Raiders was 25-of-28 passing for 266 yards and four touchdowns. The four TD passes gave him 55 for the season, extending his record total to five more than Tom Brady's former mark. The yardage total gave Manning 5,477 -- one more than Drew Brees' 2011 record.
>Manning set the mark on the last play from scrimmage for the Broncos before halftime, a 5-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas. He did not play in the second half.
>In one camera angle, the pass to Decker looks like a lateral, which would make it a running play. Another angle, from above, shows Decker receiving the ball at the Broncos' 48-yard line, with Manning slightly deeper than that.
Thoughts on this? It clearly looks like a lateral to me, and I think it would be hilarious if he lost it.
