Peyton Manning has long been considered one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. Is it time for us to stop saying "one of" now that the Denver Broncos quarterback has added the record for most touchdown passes in a single season (51 and counting) to an already impressive résumé that includes four league MVPs and one from the Super Bowl as well? Or maybe you'd feel better waiting till next week, when he has a good shot at breaking Drew Brees' record for most yards in a single season (5,476, set in 2011)

On another bizarre NFL Sunday, when Seattle lost at home for the first time in two years, Carolina secured its first playoff berth in five years, and a bunch of left-for-dead teams somehow maintained a postseason pulse, something very typical happened: Peyton Manning threw touchdown passes. The Denver quarterback threw four of them in a 37-13 rout of Houston, setting an NFL record with his 51st touchdown pass of the season, eclipsing by one the mark set by New England's Tom Brady in 2007.

Peyton Manning grabbed another slice of NFL history Sunday, throwing his 51st touchdown pass to claim the league's single-season record. The record toss was Denver Broncos quarterback Manning's fourth touchdown of the day -- a 25-yard strike to tight end Julius Thomas -- in a 37-13 victory over the Texans at Houston. The Broncos won the AFC West with the victory. Manning broke the record set by the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, who threw for 50 touchdowns in 2007. Actually, Manning reclaimed the record.

Peyton Manning surely is discovering the perks of being named Sports Illustrated's sportsman of the year. Not the least of which seems to be getting your own tribute song and video performed by none other than Bootsy Collins. No joke! Sports Illustrated For Kids has released a music video of Bootzilla singing a funky (of course) homage to the Denver Broncos quarterback set to the tune of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. " Titled "Peyton Manning's Passing Your Way," Collins dedicates the jam to NFL defensive backs.

Add one more to his list of achievements: Peyton Manning has been named Sports Illustrated's sportsman of the year . What an odd choice. Sure, Manning has led Denver to an 11-3 record this year and is closing in on the season record for touchdown passes, but his stirring comeback from neck surgery happened last year. He certainly is Denver's sportsman of the year, but for the U.S.? There were at least two better choices out there: David Ortiz, who led the Boston Red Sox to the World Series title and gave the city something to rally around after the Boston Marathon bombings, and Mariano Rivera, who retired after 17 seasons as the New York Yankees closer.

Peyton Manning is a pretty busy guy, particularly during the fall and much of the time well into the winter. It's part of the job description for the Denver Broncos quarterback. But that didn't stop one bride-to-be named Anna from inviting the four-time NFL MVP to her wedding sometime in the recent or coming weeks. And what's even cooler than inviting a superstar to your wedding? Getting a response. The bride's brother posted a photo Tuesday on Reddit of the RSVP sent by Manning.

The Denver Broncos have been stacking up victories all season. Sunday, they served Kansas City a special order: A quadruple Decker. Eric Decker caught four touchdown passes from Peyton Manning to lift the Broncos to a 35-28 victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, completing a season sweep of Kansas City and taking a huge step toward an AFC West Division title. It was the second loss to Denver in three weeks for the Chiefs, who have gone 0-3 since they were the NFL's last remaining undefeated team at 9-0. "Sometimes, when you play a team close to back-to-back, there are some ideas that are fresh in your mind," Manning said.

San Francisco linebacker Ahmad Brooks got a good, close look at Washington's Robert Griffin III on Monday night, delivering two of the 49ers' four sacks of the Redskins quarterback. So Brooks might know what he's talking about when he offers this assessment of the 2012 offensive rookie of the year, via Comcast SportsNet: "He's obviously a man and he makes his own decisions, but I personally don't feel he should be playing right now. " Griffin has been playing on a repaired right knee after ligament damage in playoff loss back in January.

Peyton Manning struggled Sunday night to come to grips with how the Denver Broncos could blow a 24-point halftime lead at New England on their way to a 34-31 overtime defeat. "You can pile on the disappointment however you want to," Manning told reporters. "I'm disappointed that we lost the game and everything that comes with that. " Asked how difficult it will be to get beyond the loss and get ready for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Manning said that's part of the job. "I think that's the test of football teams," he said.
