The Denver Broncos took a 14-13 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third quarter on Sunday night when Peyton Manning threw his 400th career touchdown pass. It was a 71-yard completion to Demaryius Thomas:
Thomas catches it near the line of scrimmage on the left side of the field and then darts and weaves his way through the Steelers defense for another big touchdown. Thomas caught the 80-yard game-winning touchdown pass from Tim Tebow during January's playoff victory over the Steelers.
(Here is an alternative angle of the play.)
Manning now joins Dan Marino and Brett Favre in the 400 Club. Marino has 420 -- a number certainly not out of reach this season -- while Favre is 108 away at 508. Manning has a three-year contract with the Broncos, but surpassing Favre might be a record out of reach for him.
