Many predicted that the Denver Broncos would be a force to be reckoned with, and even a team that would win the Super Bowl. What they didn't predict, however, is that Peyton Manning would tie the NFL record for touchdown passes in a game.

The four-time MVP threw seven touchdown passes on Thursday against the defending champions, the Baltimore Ravens, and the way he conducted the Broncos offense made Denver look nearly unbeatable.

And on both sides of the ball, the Broncos executed in a flawless manner, as they went on to dominate the Ravens 49-27.

Manning is the only player to throw seven touchdowns in the last 44 years.

Uh, don't believe in the Jets. Still a bad team, still a clueless coach.

Unless injuries interfere, it looks like Denver vs San Fran or Denver vs Seattle in the Super Bowl.
