Presented is the football that Peyton Manning threw for a touchdown pass to Eric Decker early in the 4th quarter in Manning's record setting game on Dec. 22, 2013, when he broke Tom Brady's record for touchdown passes in a single season in a 37-13 away victory for the Denver Broncos over the Houston Texans. Since Peyton Manning is now a ubiquitous presence on television, announcing games and appearing in numerous commercials, it's possible to forget just how great he was. Tom Brady set the NFL record for touchdown passes in a season when he recorded 50 in 2007 with the New England Patriots. Peyton went into the Dec. 13th game with 47 TD throws on the season. The Hall of Fame QB notched his first scoring pass of the game with a 36-yard reception to Demaryius Thomas in the First Quarter. With about seven minutes left in the Fourth Quarter, Manning connected with this offered football to Decker on a 10-yard pass to reach 48 TD passes. Later in the Fourth Quarter, Manning again hit Decker for a TD, this time on a 20-yard reception, to tie Brady with 50 touchdown tosses. Then, with 4:08 left in the game, Manning broke Brady's mark with a 25-yard reception to Julius Thomas. Manning wound up that season with a still record 55 TD tosses. Manning's terrific season was recognized as he was named the Associated Press MVP for the season. Manning finished his career as a 2-time MVP and a 2-time Super Bowl winner, and the Super Bowl MVP in SB XLI.  The ball is photo-matched to Getty 458911667. "Broncos" stamped on ball and has white marks from when Decker spiked the ball in the end zone. The displayed ball represents a great Peyton Manning accomplishment with the ball used in one of his TD passes on the day when he set an all-time NFL record.
