Broncos vs. Bengals 2012: Peyton Manning breaks another NFL record

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning broke yet another NFL record on Sunday when he orchestrated another fourth quarter comeback.

Peyton Manning led the Denver Broncos to a come-from-behind victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, as the Broncos improved to 5-3 with a 31-23 win.

Manning, who finished the game 27-for-35 passing for 291 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, etched his name into another page of NFL history with the win. Per Mile High Report, Manning is now the all-time leader in fourth-quarter comebacks since 1960.

The Broncos trailed by three heading into the fourth quarter against the Bengals when Manning led the Broncos on a scoring drive capped off by a Joel Dreesen touchdown to take the lead. Peyton Manning now has the NFL record for most fourth quarter and overtime comebacks in NFL History.

NFL CAREER FOURTH QUARTER COMEBACKS LEADERS (SINCE 1960)

1) PEYTON MANNING - 37

2) DAN MARINO - 36

3) JOHN ELWAY - 35

4) JOE MONTANA - 31

5) FRAN TARKENTON/BRETT FAVRE - 30

9) TOM BRADY - 26 (NEXT CLOSEST ACTIVE)

The vast majority of those comeback wins came when Manning was a member of the Indianapolis Colts, but it's certainly still a treat for Broncos fans to watch Manning firsthand as he continues to make NFL history.

Cincinnati took a 20-17 lead early in the fourth quarter, when Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for a 2-yard touchdown. Manning hooked up with Joel Dreesen for a one-yard touchdown pass minutes later, giving the Broncos a 24-20 lead.

Manning put the finishing touches on the comeback win late in the fourth quarter, when he found Eric Decker for a four-yard touchdown strike.
