That wasn't all for Denver. Manning's second scoring connection to Thomas -- this time a 5-yard pass with 13 seconds to play in the half -- pushed the team scoring total to 603 points and gave Manning 5,477 passing yards on the season. That surpassed the 5,476 yards put up by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees in 2011.
Manning threw four more touchdown passes in the first half against Oakland to give him 55 on the season. This is a record that could have legs.
