DENVER - The highway signs from the airport flash "Go Broncos!" The billboards around town read "United in Orange. " But for the NFL team in this city, the writing is on the wall. Anything short of a Lombardi Trophy will be a mile-high disappointment. For the Denver Broncos, the memory of last season's loss in the divisional round still stings. Baltimore scored late in the game on a bomb to Jacoby Jones - one the top-seeded Broncos misplayed - and the Ravens wound up winning in double overtime, and going on to win the Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning isn't the guy you want to bring up if you're looking for a little lively debate among the folks who pick the Associated Press' All-Pro football team. All 50 of them think he's the best quarterback in the NFL this season. And it's hard to disagree when you consider Manning's league-record 55 touchdown passes and 5,477 yards in leading the Broncos to a 13-3 record and the top overall seed in the AFC playoffs. He made first team All-Pro for the seventh time, tying Hall of Famer Otto Graham for the most by a quarterback.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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 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.
