Peyton Manning's seven TD passes the best of Week 1

Peyton Manning tied an NFL record for passing touchdowns in a game with seven in the Denver Broncos' 49-27 "Thursday Night Football" win over the Baltimore Ravens, 2013's debut "Performance Moment of the Week," presented by Bridgestone.

The Broncos quarterback tossed TDs to four different receivers in the record display. Julius Thomas, Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker each caught two; Andre Caldwell caught the other one. Manning is the first QB to throw seven touchdown passes in a contest since Minnesota Vikings QB Joe Kapp in a 1969 game against the Baltimore Colts.

Manning finished Thursday night 27-of-42 passing for 462 yards with no interceptions. He'll look to build on his game for the ages when he faces brother Eli in The Manning Bowl on Sunday against the New York Giants.
