Peyton Manning's Big Night

By Brutallyhonest @Ricksteroni

My brother-in-law is playing fantasy football for the first time this year. First time in his life.  He joined the family league that's been going on for some time now and one of his early draft choices was Peyton Manning:

Manning threw seven touchdown passes, the most ever allowed by the Ravens and ties the NFL record Peytonmanningfor the most touchdown passes. It also was the most points ever allowed by the Ravens.

Manning connected with four different receivers and he was at his absolute best in a third quarter when the Broncos turned a three-point deficit into a rout in front of the announced 76, 977.

In a blistering six-minute span of the third quarter, Manning threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell and five- and two-yard scores to Wes Welker. The Ravens, who trailed 35-17 following the third after they entered the quarter leading 17-14, could do little but look around with their hands on their hips.

For good measure, Manning hit Demaryius Thomas for a 26-yard score early in the fourth quarter for touchdown number six as the Broncos showed no mercy on the defending champions, who had knocked them out of the playoffs in a double-overtime thriller in January.

Mr. Manning put 60 points on the board for my brother-in-law last night.  Yea, 60. Against me.

Helluva start Tim.  


Carry on.
