Broncos QB Manning has thrown three touchdowns in 84 games
The Denver Broncos will face the San Francisco 49ers this week and Peyton Manning is just three touchdown passes away from breaking Brett Favre’s record of 508. Over Peyton’s career he has thrown 3 touchdowns in 84 different games. That is really all he needs against the Niners.
The San Francisco 49ers will be the fifth team the Broncos (4-1) have played this season that won at least 10 games in 2013.The guy has started 37 games for the Broncos and thrown 107 touchdown passes in those games. The offense was built for him; he runs it with complete freedom to change any call to any play at any time.
Expect Peyton Manning to be blitzed a lot this week against the Niners, but he enjoys being blitzed. His 2.25-second release is the second best in the league, again, per our friends at ESPN Stats & Info. Yet, his 92.8 total rating when not pressured since joining Denver in 2012 is the league’s best, and the 49ers rank 23rd in pressure percentage.
