Manning Makes History; Breaks TD Record

Monday, October 20th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

635493511997930024-USP-NFL-San-Francisco-49ers-at-Denver-Broncos-001This weekend in Denver, Peyton Manning made history by breaking Brett Favre’s all-time NFL career touchdown pass record of 508.

It seems an eternity since Manning threw his first career TD pass to Marvin Harrison back in 1998, but now in 2014 and in the heart of his 17th NFL season, Manning sits at a record 510 career TD passes, a record he will continue to add on to for as long as he plays.

The record-breaking 509th TD pass came with 3:09 remaining in the first half on an 8-yard pass to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.

When asked about the historical catch, Thomas said, “I thought before the play I might have a chance…I just wanted to make sure I got my feet down. I’m grateful for the chance.”

Manning, a player known for keeping his calm demeanor and his emotions in check, couldn’t help but give a big smile as he saw the official signal for touchdown pass number 509.

How Bout Them Cowboys!

Monday, October 13th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

AP COWBOYS SEAHAWKS FOOTBALL S FBN USA WAThis weekend, the Dallas Cowboys pulled off the seemingly impossible task of going into Seattle and beating the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.

What may be even more impressive is that way that they beat Seattle. The Cowboys won using a gameplan that hasn’t appeared in Dallas since they last won a Super Bowl, a gameplan that revolves around balance and physicality.

Dallas’ offensive line is proving that they are one of the best in the league, their defense is being physical at the point of attack and forcing turnovers, running back Demarco Murray is playing like an MVP back, starting with 6-straight 100-plus yard games on the ground, and quarterback Tony Romo is looking sharp and not turning the ball over.
