Quarterback Peyton Manning, who completed 22-of-30 passes (73.3%) for 305 yards with three touchdowns (138.9 rtg.) in Denver’s 34-14 win over the New Orleans Saints, became just the second player in NFL history (Steve Young, 1998) to record at least 300 yards passing and three touchdowns in four consecutive games.
Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who finished with a game-high 13 tackles, became just the third player in the NFL this season (LB Ray Lewis, Bal/LB Jerrell Freeman, Ind.) to post at least 13 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
There are only three players in the NFL with multiple interceptions and multiple sacks, two of which are Broncos. Wesley Woodyard (3 sacks, 2 INT) and Chris Harris (1.5 sacks, 2 INT) join Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson (3 sacks, 2 INT) as the only players to accomplish that feat this season.
Manning also set a club record with his fifth consecutive 300-yard passing game, equaling his personal-best streak that he set during the 2009 season.
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas finished the game with seven catches for 137 yards and one touchdown to mark the seventh career 100-yard outing.
