Much to the chagrin of the Baltimore Ravens (and their fans), Peyton Manning chalked up another career performance Thursday night in Denver as the Broncos defeated the Ravens 49-27 in the opening game of the 2013 NFL season. Throwing multiple touchdowns in a single game is nothing new for Manning (17 times he's thrown 4 or more); yet in Thursday's contest he had thrown 4 just minutes into the third quarter.
Manning finished with 7 touchdown passes, a feat only five previous NFL quarterbacks had achieved (and none since 1969, when Joe Kapp did it against the Baltimore Colts). Oh, and no one has ever thrown 7 touchdown passes without throwing an interception (until Peyton Thursday night!). In the post-game interview below, Peyton Manning displayed his usual class by a flattering mention of Kapp, who lives in California.
