Steve Nehf/The Denver Post(HOUSTON) — Peyton Manning reached another milestone in his career in the Broncos (12-3) 37-13 win over the Texans (2-13) on Sunday.

Manning threw his 51st touchdown pass of the season to Julius Thomas with 4:28 remaining in the fourth quarter that broke Tom Brady’s record of 50 set back in 2007.

“Just a lot of people played roles in this,” Manning said.  “I think it’s a unique thing and a neat thing to be a part of NFL history, even though it may be temporary.”

“Brady will probably break it again next year, so we’ll enjoy it for as long as it lasts,” he continued.

Manning tossed for 400 yards and four touchdown passes in the blowout win and the Broncos clinched the AFC West as well.

Houston’s franchise losing streak is now at 13 games.
