The Broncos are expected to break several NFL records on Sunday.

The Denver Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning have set many team and NFL records this season. Two more records are expected to be smashed on Sunday.

Last week, Manning broke the NFL's single season passing touchdown record with his 51st score of the year. Against the Oakland Raiders, Manning will likely break the league's single season yardage mark.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees set the current record in 2011 with 5,476 passing yards. Manning has averaged 347 yards per game this season and has amassed 5,211 yards through the air. Manning can break Brees's record this weekend with 266 passing yards.

The Broncos can also break the NFL's single season scoring record of 589 points, which was set by the New England Patriots in 2007. Denver has scored 572 points through sixteen games, making them 18 points away from breaking the record.

With the AFC's top playoff seed and home field advantage on the line, the Broncos have plenty to play for on Sunday. Breaking these records would just be icing on the cake.
