Peyton Manning breaks single season touchdown record

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

I've seen many great individual efforts in my many years as a football fan. None stands taller than Peyton Manning's 2013 campaign.

It started in Week 1 with a 7 touchdown performance against the defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens.  From there, it was absolutely clear this would be an historic season.

This is by far the greatest single season effort in the history of modern Quarterbacks in NFL History.  Earlier, Peyton surpassed 5K yards passing.  He is now the only player in NFL history to pass for 5K yards and 50 touchdown passes in the same season.

Fitting that Manning's 50th TD pass went to Eric Decker.  His very first completion as a Bronco went to Decker against the Steelers.

The record breaker went to Julius Thomas, the same man who caught the 1st.  A 25-yard strike to Julius Thomas, fittingly in a one-on-one matchup down the sideline.

Simply the Greatest Quarterback of All-Time!!!
