Peyton Manning threw for 318 yards and four touchdown passes, with his third breaking Brett Favre's all-time mark.
Two of them went to Demaryius Thomas, whose eight catches went for 171 yards.
With three first-half touchdown passes on Sunday night, Peyton Manning became the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes.
Manning threw touchdowns of three yards to Emmanuel Sanders and 39 yards to Wes Welker on Denver's first two possessions of the night.
After a five-and-out, Manning hit Demaryius Thomas from eight yards out for the record, with some nifty footwork from Demaryius in the front right corner of the end zone.
UPDATE: Jason La Canfora echoes a tweet from Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs that Marshall was yelling at Bears’ kicker Robbie Gould.
UPDATE II: ESPN Chicago’s Michael C. Wright had a source tell him that Marshall called out Bears quarterback Jay Cutler after the loss.
Dare I say it?
Thank you, Josh McDaniels?

Kansas City (3-3) handed San Diego (5-2) a 23-20 home loss, giving Denver a chance to pull ahead of the Chargers with a win over San Francisco.
After the Chargers tied the game at 20 just inside the two-minute warning, Alex Smith drove the Chiefs to a game-winning field goal by Cairo Santos.
Broncos to start Paul Cornick at right tackle vs. 49ers
After Clark started the Broncos’ first five games at right tackle, the Broncos are giving Paul Cornick the job today, according to three NFL sources. It won’t be the easiest of starting debuts for Cornick as he will be matched up against San Francisco 49ers’ defensive end Justin Smith in the game tonight at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Cornick is an undrafted free agent from North Dakota State who spent his first two NFL seasons on the practice squads of the New York Jets (2012) and Broncos (2012-13). He played in 21 offensive snaps last week in the team’s three offensive tackle package (Cornick was officially a tight end) and impressed the Broncos’ coaching staff.
During our in-game chat last week, I told Doug that Chris Clark was not the answer at right tackle. While it seemed a little dramatic at the time, I'd simply been noticing Clark's struggles in the running game each and every week.
This doesn't mean Cornick is the answer, by any stretch, but an extra twenty pounds anchoring the right side of the line certainly won't hurt.
Enjoy the games, and Go Chiefs (at San Diego)!
