Upon further review, NFL record keeper Elias Sports Bureau agrees with game officials that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning passed for 266 yards on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders to eclipse the single-season passing yardage record of Drew Brees. In question was a seven-yard pass to receiver Eric Decker that from one camera angle appeared to be a lateral, which means it would be ruled a run by Decker instead of a completion for Manning. Elias statisticians often review plays to get an accurate accounting of yardage figures and decided that Manning's toss to Decker went forward at least a foot or two. Manning finished the season with 5,477 passing yards, one more than New Orleans Saints quarterback Brees had in 2011.

EL PASO - UCLA Coach Jim Mora believes quarterback Brett Hundley will return for his junior season - or so he hopes, anyway. Mora, speaking at the Hyundai Sun Bowl news conference, was asked if he had given any thought to Tuesday's game being the last time he would have Hundley. “No,” responded Mora, who then added: "I don't think it will be. " He paused and left wiggle room, saying, “I am very hopeful it won't be.” Hundley has said he will decide whether to declare for the NFL draft sometime after the Sun Bowl.

Another Sunday, another NFL record for Peyton Manning. A week after setting the single-season record for passing touchdowns, the Denver quarterback broke Drew Brees' single-season yardage record of 5,476 yards. Late in the second quarter of the Broncos game at Oakland, Manning surpassed that mark. He also threw four touchdown passes in the first half, extending his own record to 55 in a season. New England's Tom Brady is second on that list with 50, achieved in 2007. The Broncos, who led at halftime, 31-0, can clinch the AFC's No. 1 seeding with a victory, locking up home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

The Houston Texans are No. 1! Only not the way they wanted to be.
