Broncos QB Manning has rare dud in St. Louis


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has enjoyed many memorable games in his brilliant career, but his performance Sunday in St. Louis wasn't one of them.

It's not often a quarterback leads his team to just seven points and still throws for 389 yards, but Manning did just that in Week 11. He completed 34 of 54 passes and just one touchdown - a 42-yard strike to a wide-open Emmanuel Sanders late in the second quarter. The Broncos were shut out in the second half for the first time since 2009.

Manning, who did exceed 3,000 yards on the year for the 16th time, also threw two interceptions and was uncharacteristically inaccurate on several throws. He will try to regroup next Sunday when the team returns home to face Miami.


Report: Broncos planning for Peyton Manning to play in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Broncos are expecting and planning for quarterback Peyton Manning to play at least one more season, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport.

Manning wants to hold all the passing records, and he needs at least one more season to be the NFL leader in career wins and yards, which are currently held by Brett Favre. 

Favre has 71,838 passing yards and 186 wins. Manning entered play Week 11 with 67,876 passing yards and 174 wins.

It appears, however, Manning's plans to return in 2015 could change, if the Broncos win the Super Bowl this season, according to Rapoport.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning fires five TD passes vs. Oakland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning put together another vintage performance, firing five touchdown passes in three quarters of work Sunday afternoon against the Raiders in Week 10.

Manning hooked up with C.J. Anderson for a 51-yard score and Emmanuel Sanders for a 32-yard strike in the second quarter. He fired three touchdowns in the third quarter before his day was over, including two to Julius Thomas (10, 32 yards). Manning found Sanders for a 15-yard score with 1:01 remaining in the third quarter to give his team a 31-point advantage. With the game well in hand, the Broncos kept Manning on the bench in favor of Brock Osweiler.

Manning compiled 340 yards through the air while completing 31 of 44 pass attempts. He added five touchdowns and two interceptions, registering a 111.9 passer rating in a 41-17 victory. He has passed for 2,912 yards with 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

The Broncos will face the Rams in St. Louis Week 11.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning tosses two touchdowns Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tossed two touchdowns Week 9 against the Patriots.

Manning completed 34 of 57 passes for 438 yards and two touchdowns. It wasn't all perfect, as Manning also threw two interceptions. He also gained 3 rushing yards. Manning had some trouble early, struggling during the first quarter. On the first drive of the second quarter, Manning threw his first interception. Manning was able to turn things around in the second half, tossing both of his touchdowns. It was too little too late, as the Broncos never really threatened New England late.

Manning will look for more Week 10 against the Raiders.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning registers 90th career three-TD game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning registered another three-touchdown performance for the 90th time in his career, leading his team to a 35-21 victory over the Chargers in Week 8.

All of Manning's touchdown passes went to Emmanuel Sanders. He found Sanders for a 2-yard strike in the second quarter, followed by a 31-yard strike with 39 seconds remaining in the first half. On the opening drive of the third quarter, Manning hooked up with Sanders for a 2-yard touchdown strike.

He compiled for 286 yards through the air while completing 25 of 35 pass attempts. He added three touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 124.2 passer rating. Manning has 10 touchdown passes and no interceptions over his last three games. He's cracked the 300-yard mark just once in those three games.

He'll look to keep rolling Week 9 at New England.


No risk with Peyton Manning Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) It goes without saying, to be certain, but we'll say it anyways: start Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Thursday night games have a tendency to suppress offense, but that simply has not been the case for Manning in his career. If you'll believe it, Manning has actually somehow been more effective in Thursday games, averaging 300.5 passing yards with 35 touchdowns in 11 games. That comes out to a Fantasy scoring average of 30.2 points per game, including 82 combined points in two games a year ago.

This is a lot of words to tell you something you didn't need to be told. Manning is rolling, and nothing is going to slow him down; not rain, not sleet, not snow, and certainly not a short week. Keep him in your lineup in all leagues for Thursday's matchup. 


Matchup means nothing for Peyton Manning


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) It's not like any Fantasy owners were debating whether or not to start Peyton Manning in Week 7, but a few probably had at least some minor concerns about the way he'd perform against a 49ers defense that entered the day ranked second against the pass.

And he reminded them few why he's the last thing they should worry about.

You don't set the career record for passing touchdowns by shrinking against the tougher opponents. It's not like this 49ers defense is something historically good. This Broncos offense, and certainly Manning himself, is. He hasn't gone without a touchdown pass in a game since 2010, and he's had less than two only once in the last two seasons. Maybe the four touchdown passes he had Sunday would have been too much to ask of him, but given how consistently he's done it over his career, two should be the minimum expectation for him every week, regardless of his opponent. And you'd never sit an assured two touchdowns.

Of course, this advice is probably less useful in traditional Fantasy Football leagues (since again, no one was actually sitting Manning) than weekly contests like FanDuel and the like. Manning will always cost you a pretty penny, but you won't find a safer bet either. He may have unfavorable matchups against the third-ranked Chargers pass defense in Week 8 and the first-ranked Patriots pass defense in Week 9, but don't let that scare you away from him.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning throws four TDs. sets career record


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning shined Sunday night, completing 22 of his 26 pass attempts for 318 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 42-17 blowout win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Manning entered the game just two touchdowns behind record holder Brett Favre on the all-time passing-touchdown list and quickly fired two scores in the first quarter. He connected on a short touchdown with Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter to break Favre's record and added a second touchdown to Thomas on a 40-yard strike early in the second half. The Broncos decided to take the star quarterback out after he led the team to a 32-point lead in the third quarter.

Manning has been as good as ever en route to breaking the record, and each of his scores moving forward will extend his lead in career passing touchdowns. He's passed for 1,848 yards and 19 touchdowns in six games this season while throwing just three interceptions. Manning will square off with the division-rival Chargers on Thursday.


49ers CB Chris Cook (hamstring) to miss remainder of Week 7


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) 49ers cornerback Chris Cook has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Broncos with a hamstring injury, the team announced. The injury leaves the 49ers with only three cornerbacks on a night where Denver quarterback Peyton Manning has thrown four touchdowns in a little more than one half.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning breaks TD record in first half Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning became the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes Sunday, connecting with Demaryius Thomas on an eight-yard score in the first half of Sunday night's game against the 49ers.

Manning tied Brett Favre with his second first-quarter touchdown pass and then delivered a strike to Thomas for No. 509 late in the second quarter. Manning just seems to be getting better as he ages, and he's up to 18 touchdowns with only three interceptions through five-and-a-half games this season. He should have plenty more scores left in his arm before he decides to call it a career.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning ties record with 508th TD pass


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tied the record for career passing touchdowns in the first quarter Sunday, connecting with Wes Welker for his 508th career touchdown pass in Denver's Sunday night battle against San Francisco.

Manning hooked up with Emmanuel Sanders on a three-yard score early in the first quarter before connecting with Welker on a 39-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown that was confirmed upon review. He's completed all seven of his pass attempts for 111 yards in the first quarter. Tied with Brett Favre on the all-time list after the second touchdown, Manning has three-plus quarters to break the record Sunday.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning has touchdown trifecta in win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Broncos explosive quarterback Peyton Manning didn't enjoy one of his typical big-yard blowouts Sunday against the host Jets, but he was plenty efficient in yet another victory.

Manning completed 22 of 33 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns to the Thomases - two to Julius and one to Demaryius. He began his afternoon with a 54-yard pass-and-catch to the latter and threw two scoring strikes in the second quarter to give his team control. He added a 4-yard touchdown to Julius Thomas midway through the third quarter before his team staved off a comeback.

The veteran threw just 13 passes in the second half for 64 yards as the Broncos stayed mostly on the ground.

Manning and the Broncos will host San Francisco next Sunday.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning: Time for Ronnie Hillman to step up


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Broncos star quarteback Peyton Manning has put the onus of responsibility on teammate and running back Ronnie Hillman.

Hillman appears destined to serve as the featured back Sunday against the host Jets in the wake of an injury that has knocked out Montee Ball.

"When you're running out there in pregame warmups as a starter it's a different helmet you wear," Manning told the Denver Post. "So we're counting on hm."

Hillman performed well after replacing Ball in Week 5. He rushed for 64 yards on 15 carries.


Peyton Manning distances himself from the pack


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did more than just set a career high when he threw for 479 yards and four touchdowns Week 5 against Arizona. He also confirmed that he's far and away the best quarterback in Fantasy.

It wasn't so clear coming into the season. He was drafted first at the position, yes, but not so far ahead of Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. But with Brees stuck on two touchdown passes every week, and Rodgers (along with others like Matt Ryan and Andrew Luck) plagued by inconsistency, Manning has only widened the gap at the top.

Coming into the season, there was some debate about whether or not he really deserved a first-round pick, but as the clear standout at the highest-scoring position in Fantasy, he's pretty much ended that debate. Be thankful for what you have in him.


Broncos' Peyton Manning hits new career-high


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning reached a new career-high Week 5.

Manning threw for 479 yards against Arizona, which is a career-best for him. He acheived that by completing 31 of 47 passes. He also added four touchdowns for good measure. Manning's first touchdown of the game was the 500th of his career, so it was an impressive day all-around for the superstar. 

Manning did throw two interceptions during the contest. He also had two rushing attempts, but didn't gain any yards. Much of Manning's success can be attributed to Demaryius Thomas, who had 226 receiving yards on the day.

Manning will look for more Week 6 against the Jets.


Peyton Manning throws 500th touchdown


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw his 500th career touchdown Week 5 against the Cardinals. 

Manning wasted no time getting to work, scoring on the team's first offensive drive. He led a 12-play drive 80 yards down the field for a score. Manning mostly worked out of the no-huddle during the possession. On the final play of the drive, Manning found tight end Julius Thomas for the 7 yard strike. Manning completed 7 of 10 passes, picking up 75 yards. 


Peyton Manning cracks 300-yard mark in overtime loss to Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning surpassed the 300-yard mark in a Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks in Seattle.

Manning scored on a 3-yard shovel pass to Julius Thomas in the third quarter but was intercepted late in the fourth quarter by Kam Chancellor. He bounced back and orchestrated a six-play, 80-yard drive capped off by a 26-yard strike in the end zone to Jacob Tamme with 41 seconds remaining to send the game to overtime.

Manning compiled 303 yards through the air while completing 31 of 49 passes. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 85.7 passer rating. He was sacked once in a 26-20 defeat.

Manning has 814 passing yards, with eight touchdowns and one interception through three weeks. The Broncos will have a bye before hosting the Cardinals in Week 5.


Peyton Manning throws three TDs in win vs. Chiefs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning went 21 for 26 with 242 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Denver's 24-17 win over Kansas City.

Manning focused on the tight ends in the red zone in the first quarter, connecting on his first touchdown with Julius Thomas before hitting Jacob Tamme for a wide-open four-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. He capped off the first half with a 12-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas for his third touchdown. He finished the half 15 for 19 with 191 yards against the Chiefs' decimated defense but couldn't get much done in the second half.

Manning has passed for a slightly-disappointing 501 yards over his first two games but has racked up six touchdowns without throwing a pick. He faces a big road test in Week 3 when the Broncos travel to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.


Peyton Manning enjoys big first half on milestone night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning picked up this season where he left off, throwing three touchdown passes in the first half -- all to tight end Julius Thomas -- in a 31-24 win over the Colts. Manning was 16 of 22 for 199 yards at halftime.

Manning wasn't as sharp after the break and finished 22 of 36 for 269 yards with those three scores and no interceptions. Still, Manning surpassed 65,000 career passing yards and has now beaten all 32 teams. In primetime home games with the Broncos, Manning has thrown 21 touchdowns with one interception.

With Wes Welker suspended, Manning focused on Demaryius Thomas (11 targets), Emmanuel Sanders (9) and Julius Thomas (8). He found the 6-5, 250-pounder for touchdowns of 3, 35 and 5 yards, all in the second quarter.

Manning plays the Chiefs at home Week 2.

Peyton Manning is absolutely awesome in season openers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Peyton Manning is money in season openers. In his last three, two with the Broncos and one with the Colts, Manning completed 69 percent of his throws for 1,148 yards (383 per game) and 12 touchdowns with no interceptions.

Manning became the sixth quarterback in NFL history -- first since 1969 -- to throw seven touchdowns in a game when Denver walloped Baltimore 49-27 in the 2013 opener.

Not that he needs added motivation, but Manning has plenty entering Sunday night's home game against Indy. His first matchup with his former team, Week 7 last year, didn't go well. The Colts handed the Broncos their first loss, 39-33, as Manning lost a fumble, threw an interception, fluttered his passes and took four sacks.

Linebacker Robert Mathis keyed the rush with two sacks and four hits on Manning. He'll be watching Sunday, serving the first of his four-game suspension.

Indianapolis ranked 15th in Fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks last year (18.44). Even though Manning had an off game at Indy, he still threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns and put up 31 Fantasy points.

With Wes Welker (concussion) on track to get cleared, Manning should have all his weapons Sunday. He's the No. 1 QB play on the board.


Peyton Manning on fine: 'Money well spent'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has called the $8,268 fine he received for unsportsmanlike conduct "money well spent," per Pro Football Talk.

Manning was handed the rare fine for jawing last week at Texans safety D.J. Swearinger after he clobbered Denver wideout Wes Welker with a shoulder to the head and caused a concussion. Swearinger is expected to be fined by the league as well.


Peyton Manning throws for 243 yards in first half


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tuned up for the regular season by shredding the Texans for 243 passing yards and two touchdowns in the first half Saturday. Manning hit 21 of 27 throws but was picked off for the first time this preseason.

Manning's favorite target was Emmanuel Sanders. The duo hooked up five times for 128 yards and both scores. Manning, who's completed 79.6 percent of his throws in three preseason games, likely won't play again until the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Colts.

Peyton Manning carves up 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning led two scoring drives against the 49ers before leaving in the second quarter. Manning completed 12 of 14 passes for 102 yards, including an easy 17-yard touchdown to tight end Julius Thomas.

Manning, who completed his last seven throws, targeted seven different receivers. His favorite target was Demaryius Thomas; the duo connected five times for 37 yards.

Denver's first drive ended in a field goal after Manning barely missed Andre Caldwell in the end zone on third down.


Peyton Manning looks sharp in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a pretty productive preseason debut on Thursday against the Seahawks.

Manning played two series, highlighted by a 14-play, 61-yard drive which led to a touchdown in his final drive of the night. He completed 10 of 13 passes for 78 yards. Five of his 10 completed passes went to Demaryius Thomas.

The Broncos will play the 49ers in San Francisco on Aug. 17, their second preseason game.

Peyton Manning likes compliment from Thomas


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas said quarterback Peyton Manning's arm is getting stronger, and Manning is excited to hear that.

"I like having that feedback," Manning said. "I can learn a lot off of that. I do the same thing for receivers. I tell receivers, 'Wow, you're really coming out of the stance, I'm having to throw the ball a lot sooner to keep you from outrunning.' ... Any time a player gives you feedback, I take that seriously and hopefully that means making some progress."
