Peyton Manning scores 1st rushing touchdown in 5 years

Peyton Manning is having such a great start to the season that he is even scoring with his legs.

No one will accuse Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning of being a runner or even a jogger, but in Week 5's matchup against the Cowboys, he did produce a score with his legs. Late in the second quarter, Manning ran a naked bootleg that allowed him to trot into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown. The rushing touchdown was Manning's first in five years.

The season has kind of gone that way for the 37-year-old, who has been on fire through five games. During the span of five weeks, Manning has shattered several records, including the most touchdowns in the first five games. That record was held by Daunte Culpepper, who passed for 18 touchdowns in the first five games during the 2004 season with the Vikings. Manning has also scored the most touchdowns without an interception in NFL history. His historic start to the season is unmatched in the record books.

The Broncos currently lead the Cowboys by a score of 28-20 at halftime.
