Last week, Peyton Manning broke the single-season touchdown pass record. On Sunday, Manning and the Broncos needed just two quarters to rewrite much of the rest of the NFL's record book.

Peyton threw for 266 yards - the exact number he needed to break the single-season record held by Drew Brees - and four touchdowns, giving him 55 on the season. It's his ninth time hitting the four-score mark this season, extending his own NFL record.

Miller’s ACL tear adds wrinkle to 2015 option, sabotages his chance at extension

The most obvious effects of Von Miller's torn ACL are that it ends his 2013 season, and is a significant blow to Denver's Super Bowl chances.

While the injury has the potential to affect Miller's career for the long term, that would seem a lesser concern at this point, given how well players tend to recover from ACL injuries.
