Peyton Manning has had a fantastic season for the Denver Broncos, reviving his career after missing all of 2011 with a neck injury. During Denver's 26-13 win over the Oakland Raiders, Manning hit a couple of statistical milestones with another solid performance through the air.
Mile High Report had the scoop on the four milestones that Manning tossed up on Thursday night, three of which boosted his status as the top man of all time in those stats, including the 12th season with 10 or more wins in his career:
- Surpassed 5000 career completions (second all time)
- Passed for 300+ yards for the 70th time in his career (first all time)
- Completed his 12th season of 10 or more wins (first all time)
- Completed 72 percent of his passes (ninth time he's done that this year!!!)
Manning hit most of those milestones originally during his long career with the Indianapolis Colts, and is on pace to have one of the best years of his career if his great form continues through the end of the season with the Broncos. So far, Manning has put up 30 touchdowns and 3,812 yards while leading them to their 10-3 record.
