Peyton Manning: I'm not 100 percent yet


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who threw an NFL-record 55 touchdowns last season, said on the "Late Show with David Letterman" that he's not back to where he was before his 2011 neck surgery, reports NFL.com.

"I'm not 100 percent compared to what I was before my surgery, but I have made strides each season and this year felt a lot better than the year before," he said. "But these nerves just go at their own pace. It's not like it's going to have this immediate recovery one day."

Manning said his accuracy did not return immediately following the surgery.

"It was weak and I lost awareness of my arm in space, a proprioception issue," he said. "So I just use to sit in front of a mirror and go through my throwing motions, trying to get the feel back the way I always thrown before. I was trying to throw to some receivers, so I would throw to you and the ball would go (points finger) there. That was very scary."

Manning, 38, is entering his 17th season.

Peyton Manning cleared for 2014 season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been fully cleared following his physical, and he's officially ready for the 2014 season, reports the Denver Post. There is no issue with his surgically-repaired neck, the report said.

The clearance means Manning is guaranteed $20 million this year. Manning, who turns 38 this month, enters the season 17 touchdown passes shy of Brett Favre's career record of 508.


Peyton Manning's neck exam is Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will get his surgically-repaired neck examined Monday, reports ESPN.com. The team fully expects Manning, who played the Pebble Beach Pro-Am after the Super Bowl, to be cleared for the 2014 season.

The exam is required in Manning's contract, which includes $20 million guaranteed for 2014. Manning threw an NFL-record 55 touchdowns last season and picked up his fifth MVP award.


Broncos pleased with Brock Osweiler's development


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) The Broncos fully expect Peyton Manning to be under center in 2014, but they were reassured by what they saw from 23-year-old backup Brock Osweiler. Getting his most extended playing time in the regular-season finale at Oakland, the second-year pro completed 9 of 13 passes for 85 yards.

"I was pleased to see Brock's performances in the preseason get better in each game, and then he played a pretty good second half against Oakland in the last regular season game, and I feel like he's making progress," offensive coordinator Greg Knapp told the team's website.

Coach John Fox said Osweiler is "way further ahead this year than he was a year ago. I think he’s got a comfort level. Of course, the time he spends with Peyton, I think, is a great benefit. But he’s smart, he’s got all the athletic tools and now it’s just a matter of getting opportunities to play the game."


Peyton Manning: 'Not an easy pill to swallow'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was somewhat terse discussing his team's Super Bowl humiliation. After an avalance of Denver mistakes that included a safety on the first snap, four turnovers and poor special teams play, Manning said: "Certainly to finish this way is very disappointing. It is not an easy pill to swallow, but eventually, you have to."

Manning set a Super Bowl record with 34 completions, but they went for just 280 yards. Much of his production came after the outcome was long decided.


Peyton Manning flops in Super Bowl debacle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) The Broncos' Peyton Manning put together the greatest regular season by a quarterback in NFL history, throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. That made his Super Bowl performance all the more surprising.

Looking helpless in the face of a fierce Seattle defense, Manning failed to lead his team to a first-quarter first down and threw two interceptions in the first half. Linebacker Malcolm Smith returned the second pick 69 yards for a touchdown, after end Cliff Avril hit Manning's arm on the throw. Manning lost a fumble in the fourth quarter.

Manning finished 34 of 49 for 280 yards, including a meaningless 14-yard touchdown to Demaryius Thomas at the end of the third quarter. Manning followed that up by finding Wes Welker for a 2-point conversion. Manning's 34 completions set a Super Bowl record.

Still, it was a dismal end to a glorious season.


Peyton Manning achieves dubious feat


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning achieved a dubious distinction in the first half of the Super Bowl. After throwing an interception that Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith returned 69 yards for a touchdown, Manning is now responsible for the two longest pick-sixes in Super Bowl history.

In Super Bowl 42, Saints cornerback Tracy Porter returned a Manning interception 74 yards for a score.


Peyton Manning: I do throw ducks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has no problem with the claim written in a column earlier in January by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman that he "throws ducks."

Sherman called Manning the smartest quarterback in the NFL and praised his passes as accurate and on time. But he added what seemed like an insult to anyone but Manning.

"I believe it's true as well," Manning told the Denver Post. "I'd say he's a smart player. I don't think it's a real reach what he's saying there. I do throw ducks. I've thrown a lot of yards and touchdowns ducks so I'm actually quite proud of it."


Broncos practicing outside Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) With temperatures in the high 30s, quarterback Peyton Manning and the Broncos will practice outside Monday rather than use the Jets' indoor facility, reports ESPN. Coach John Fox said Sunday that his preference is to practice outside when possible.

Temperatures are expected to drop into the teens Tuesday.


Peyton Manning not thinking about retiring


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, 37, said he still enjoys the hard work of preparing for games and is not considering retirement. "I certainly want to continue playing," he said after arriving in New Jersey for the Super Bowl. 

Manning added he's more comfortable playing in cold weather now than he was in 2012, when he was coming off multiple neck procedures.


Pressure-free Peyton Manning throws for 400 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) With the Patriots failing to generate any semblance of a pass rush, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning completed 32 of 43 throws for 400 yards and two touchdowns in the AFC Championship Game victory. New England got no sacks or hits on Manning.

Manning missed Eric Decker in the end zone on Denver's second drive before finding tight end Jacob Tamme for a 1-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. Off play-action, Manning hit Demaryius Thomas for a 3-yard touchdown  in the third quarter. Manning also had a scoring pass dropped by tight end Julius Thomas.

New England lost top corner Aqib Talib to a knee injury in the second quarter, and Manning exploited that by finding Demaryius Thomas seven times for 134 yards.

Manning's turnover-free performance was the third 400-yard effort of his postseason career, and the first time a Bill Belichick-coached Patriots team gave up 400 passing yards. Manning will face the Seahawks or 49ers in Super Bowl XLVIII.


Broncos list eight as probable for title clash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Broncos should be at full strength for the AFC Championship game against New England. All eight players on their Friday injury report are probable, including quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (calf).

The others are safeties Duke Ihenacho (knee) and Mike Adams (thigh), tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), tackle Winston Justice (finger), guard Chris Kuper (ankle) and cornerback Kayvon Webster (thumb).


Only one Bronco not a full practice participant on Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) The Broncos are in fine shape heading into their AFC title game Sunday against New England. All but one player on their Wednesday injury report was a full participant in practice. That was safety Mike Adams (thigh).

Peyton Manning breaks another touchdown record


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw a pair of touchdown passes in the 24-17 win over San Diego, giving him 57 scoring throws in the regular season and playoffs combined. He broke the record of 56 previously held by Dan Marino.

Manning finished 25 of 36 for 230 yards with an interception. He hit Demaryius Thomas for a 2-yard touchdown in the first quarter, Wes Welker for a 3-yard score in the second quarter. Welker also dropped a potential touchdown pass. Manning was picked off on a deflection in the end zone right before halftime. 

Manning's biggest throw came on the final drive, when he found tight end Julius Thomas along the sideline to convert 3rd-and-17. The 21-yard gain helped Denver run out the clock. Manning plays New England in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game.


Report: Neck exam key to Peyton Manning's future


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will undergo a contractually-mandated exam on his neck in March, reports ESPN. If the test shows his neck is stable, Manning will return in 2014 regardless of whether Denver wins the Super Bowl, the report. said.

If the exam reveals Manning, 37, is at increased risk of injury, Manning "will be forced to decide whether to retire," sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.


Upon review, Peyton Manning keeps all-time yardage record


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2013) The NFL has upheld a 7-yard completion from the Broncos' Peyton Manning to Eric Decker in Sunday's win in Oakland, meaning Manning will keep the all-time record for passing yards in a season at 5,477, reports the Denver Post. It was unclear if the play was a forward pass or a lateral, but there was not enough evidence to overturn the initial ruling.

"The stats crew at the game scored this play as a forward pass," NFL spokesman Michael Signora said, per the paper. "During the course of the season, there are many similar plays which could be reviewed by the Elias Sports Bureau, the league's official statistician. In this case, the determination of Elias is that the fairest resolution is for the ruling of the on-sight stats crew to stand."

Manning's 266 passing yards Sunday gave him 1 more yard than Drew Brees in 2011.


Brock Osweiler steps in for Peyton Manning in second half


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler took over for Peyton Manning in the second half of Sunday's regular season finale against the Raiders in Week 17. With the game well in hand, Osweiler completed 9 of 13 passes for 85 yards in a 34-14 victory.

The Broncos will have a first-round bye before the hosting their first playoff game.

Peyton Manning shines in another record-breaking performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning enjoyed another record-breaking performance as he extended his streak of 39 games with at least one touchdown pass during Sunday’s regular season finale against the Raiders in Week 17.

Manning did all of his damage in one half, as he hooked up with Eric Decker for a 3-yard touchdown strike and fired a 7-yard touchdown pass to Knowshon Moreno in the first quarter. He then surpassed the single-season scoring record with a 63-yard touchdown strike to Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter. Manning found Thomas again for a 5-yard touchdown with under a minute remaining in the first half, which broke the single-season passing yards record.

Manning dissected Oakland's defense, completing 25 of 28 passes for 266 yards, with four touchdowns and no interceptions. The Broncos took the pedal off the gas and started Brock Osweiler under center to start the second half. He finished the regular season with 5,477 passing yards, with 55 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Peyton Manning should shatter another record Week 17


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) On Sunday the Broncos will play for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs, meaning Peyton Manning won't take his foot off the gas. Another passing record seems sure to fall.

Manning enters Week 17 at Oakland 265 passing yards behind Drew Brees' all-time season record of 5,476 set in 2011. Manning averages 347.4 passing yards and in Week 3 vs. Oakland, he completed 32 of 37 throws for 374 yards and three touchdowns.

Of course, Manning just set the NFL's season record for touchdown passes when he hit Julius Thomas for No. 51 at Houston. Manning is on the verge of securing his fifth MVP award -- he's the only NFL player to ever capture four.

The Raiders aren't likely to put up signficant resistance. They give up 21.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, tied for fourth most. QBs have thrown 29 touchdowns and nine interceptions vs. Oakland.

As usual, Manning will be the top play in Fantasy come Sunday.


Peyton Manning throws four touchdowns in victory


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning completed 32-of-51 passes for 400 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 37-13 victory over the Texans. His final throw of the game -- a 25-yard strike to Julius Thomas -- set the single-season record for touchdowns (51), breaking Tom Brady's previous mark. 

Manning had 296 yards and a touchdown by halftime. But the Texans came out aggressively in the third quarter, as Manning missed on his first five pass attempts. Manning eventually shook out of his funk and fired three fourth quarter touchdowns (two to Eric Decker). This was all against a Houston defense that had allowed the second-fewest passing yards per game this season. 

The Broncos face the Raiders in Week 17. With the first-round bye locked up, there's a good chance Manning could be rested in favor of Brock Osweiler. But it probably won't happen without a fight. In 2009, with the Colts, Manning was pulled early from a game against the Jets, with a perfect season on the line. The New York Times painted a picture of a sullen Manning, "stewing" on the sideline after his removal. 


Peyton Manning active as usual


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who was listed as probable Friday because of an ankle injury, is active for Week 16 at Houston. He has been bothered by the injury for several weeks now but has yet to miss a game.

Broncos place nine probables on Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) The Broncos have listed nine players as probable for Sunday against Houston. Included on the list is the pass-catching combination of quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), tight end Julius Thomas (knee) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (shoulder).

The others are cornerback Champ Bailey (foot), tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), wideout Trindon Holliday (shoulder), guard Chris Kuper (ankle), tackle Winston Justice (finger) and linebackerDanny Trevathan (shoulder).


Peyton Manning has unfavorable Week 16 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) The Houston Texans -- Peyton Manning's Week 16 opponent -- have allowed the second-fewest passing yards this season (about 183 per game). Opposing quarterbacks have scored 17.9 Fantasy points per game against the Texans, the 13th-lowest average in the NFL. 

Still, this is Peyton Manning. The Broncos quarterback has nine games with 30 or more Fantasy points this season, including three with 40 or more...and one of 60. The matchup isn't great, and Manning could be looking at another game without Wes Welker, but he's still an elite option at quarterback. 

The Texans have given up multiple passing touchdowns in three straight games, and allowed Tom Brady to pass for 371 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13. While this matchup probably won't produce Manning's 10th 30-point game of the season, he can be started in most formats. 


Ankle still no issue for Peyton Manning


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) As expected, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle) is active and in uniform for Week 15 against the Chargers. Manning has been playing through this injury for much of the season at this point, and it hasn't slowed him yet. 

Peyton Manning is awesome


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Just for fun, here are some points against Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning:

1. The Chargers have held opposing quarterbacks to two total touchdown passes over their last two games. 

2. In Weeks 11 and 12, Manning threw three total touchdowns and averaged 16 Fantasy points per game. 

3. In 10 career games against the Chargers, Manning has thrown just 22 touchdowns, against 18 interceptions. 

4. Manning has -31 rushing yards on the season. 

Manning has 74 more Fantasy points -- and 12 more passing touchdowns -- than the second-highest player in the game. He threw four touchdowns in Week 10 against the Chargers. He's thrown 33 career touchdowns (in 10 games) on Thursdays.

Manning should be started in all Fantasy formats.
