With a 20-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to Eric Decker and his third score of the day, Peyton Manning tied Tom Brady’s single-season touchdown pass record at 50. Of course, there were seven minutes to go in a blowout win over the Texans, so Peyton added another with four and a half minutes left to Julian Thomas to set the new mark. With the AFC West wrapped up, that might be it for Peyton’s regular season, especially if the Patriots lose to the Ravens, which would clinch homefield for the Broncos. Either way, there’s no pressure on Peyton to play Week 17 if the record was the only thing that mattered.
