Peyton did the same thing as this guy

by Otis Day

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.


I got game stats for this story from ESPN.com
