Peyton Manning has always been a stud in the regular season, but this is ridiculous.
Adding to his historic start, Manning led the Broncos to a 37-21 whipping of the Oakland Raiders on Monday night at Sports Authority Field. Manning was an absurd 32-of-37 — all five incompletions hit the intended receiver in the hands — for 374 yards and three touchdowns.
The Broncos’ quarterback is making it look ridiculously easy three games into the 2013 season. He became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw 12 touchdown passes through the first three games. And Manning had his passing dozen by halftime of Game 3.
That’s 12 touchdowns against zero interceptions. The best he’s ever been?
The question again remains however as to whether Manning can extend this to the post season. Until that happens, this is great fodder for conversation, but it really doesn’t matter that much. Winning in the playoffs will be critical to Manning’s legacy.
