Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Peyton Manning threw five touchdown passes
in a span of just under 17 minutes as the Denver Broncos posted a 41-17 win
over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Manning shook off two interceptions to complete 31-of-44 passes for 340 yards
before sitting out the entire fourth quarter with the Broncos in firm control.
It was the ninth five-touchdown game of Manning’s career, one more than Drew
Brees for the most in NFL history.
Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas both caught two touchdown passes as the
Broncos (7-2) rebounded from last week’s loss at New England.
Oakland rookie Derek Carr compiled 30 completions on 47 attempts, but finished
with only 192 yards. He threw two touchdown passes and was picked off twice.
The Raiders (0-9) suffered their 15th straight loss, the longest streak in
team history since a 19-game slide between 1961-62.
