Peyton Manning carves up Titans excellent pass defense
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (12/8/13) Broncos QB Peyton Manning had another excellent game Week 14 against the Titans.
Tennessee entered the game allowing just eight passing touchdowns all season. That didn't stop Manning, who tossed four touchdowns against the best passing defense in the league. The team was aggressive early, going for it on two fourth downs on the first drive. Manning was able to put up good numbers despite losing Wes Welker to a concussion early. Manning finished with 397 passing yards. He completed 39 of 59 attempts.
Manning will take on the Chargers Week 15.
Peyton Manning good to go Week 14
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (12/8/13) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is active Week 14 against the Titans.
Manning was listed as probable with an ankle injury. He's been dealing with the issue for weeks, but it has not impacted his status on Sunday.
Nearly all on Broncos injury report are probable
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (12/6/13) Thirteen of 16 players on the Broncos injury report released on Friday are probable. Among them are key offensive standouts such as quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), running back Knowshon Moreno (ankle), tight end Julius Thomas (knee) and wideout Demaryius Thomas (ankle).
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (12/5/13) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is facing a tough matchup Week 14 against the Titans.
Tennessee has compiled one of the best pass defenses in the league this season, allowing opposing quarterbacks to throw from eight touchdowns in 12 games. The team has held passers to 13.83 Fantasy points per game, the fourth-lowest figure in the league. The Titans have gone six games this season where they haven't allowed a passing touchdown. They've given up only one multi-touchdowns game. Matt Schaub tossed three touchdowns against Tennessee Week 2.
Manning represents the biggest challenge for the Titans yet. While they haven't played a quarterback of Manning's caliber, Tennessee has been able to hold good quarterbacks in check thus far. They limited Philip Rivers, Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson to just one touchdown. Manning has not faced a passing defense this good all season, and could have a tough time putting up his usually dominant numbers.
Peyton Manning proved everyone wrong in his comeback effort in 2012 after missing a season following neck surgery. And now he has the chance to build on that performance, especially with the addition of receiver Wes Welker. That could make Manning a candidate to be the No. 1 Fantasy quarterback this year because he was impressive in his first year with the Broncos. Manning completed 68.6 percent of his passes for 4,659 yards, 37 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. It was the 12th time he passed for 4,000-plus yards (third time with 4,500 yards) and the seventh time he's thrown for 30-plus touchdowns. Manning will be 37 when the season starts, but he continues to play at a high level and defied all skeptics with his performance last year. He has arguably the best receiving corps in the NFL with Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and now Welker to go with a solid running game behind a stout offensive line. We consider Manning a Top-5 Fantasy quarterback on Draft Day, and he's worth drafting with a pick toward the end of Round 2 or beginning of Round 3 in all formats. (Updated 5/29/13)
