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.


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 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.


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 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 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 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: 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.
