Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos faced the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night in Denver. This was a rematch of the AFC divisional game that sent the heavily favored Broncos home in the playoffs less then a year ago. The Baltimore Ravens eventually won the Super Bowl. Thursday night was revenge for most of the returning Denver Broncos.
Peyton Manning definitely put a stamp on that. The Broncos quarterback threw for an NFL record 7 touchdowns and 462 yards. Putting up 49 points on the once dominant defense of the Ravens, a year ago. Manning’s new record makes us begin to ask the question is he the greatest ever? Montana, Elway, Brady, and Favre never did what Manning just did. Would one more ring solidify him among the greatest? Possibly this season we could see him put all those doubters to rest, with his 2nd Super Bowl win and you might be hearing this question more frequently.
