Peyton Manning's assault on the record books this season includes another historical accolade: His 51st touchdown pass, the most ever in a season.

Tom Brady held the record since 2007 with 50, topping Manning's prior mark of 49 from 2004, when Manning was with the Indianapolis Colts.

Manning tied the 50 mark by hitting Eric Decker from 20 yards out for the score. The play was reviewed, and upheld, once it was seen that Decker had control of the ball and had both feet in the end zone.
