Denver added one more touchdown for good measure on a drive that took just four plays. The Broncos got into the end zone on the first touchdown of rookie running back Ronnie Hillman’s career, a five-yard run along the left sideline that made it 36-14.
The drive also marked milestones for both quarterback Peyton Manning and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, as Manning has once again topped 300 yards passing and Thomas has gone over 100 yards receiving.
For Manning, it’s the 77th of his career, including postseason, and the sixth 300-yard passing game of the season, with all of those coming in the last seven games. In his career, Manning’s teams are 46-30 when he goes over 300 yards. Earlier in the game, he tied Dan Marino for second all-time in career touchdown passes with 420.
Thomas now has five games in 2012 with at least 100 yards receiving and eight for his career.
