Peyton Manning tied an NFL record with SEVEN touchdown passes as the Denver Broncos defeated the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens 49-27 in the season opener.
Manning was 27 of 42 for 462 yards with no interceptions for an off-the-charts quarterback rating of 141.1.
Manning is the sixth QB in NFL history to throw seven TD passes in a game and the first since Joe Kapp did it for Minnesota against Baltimore on Sept. 28, 1969.
That '69 game was a doozy.
