Emmanuel Sanders with his 75 yard touchdown catch caught his 12th Peyton Manning touchdown pass moving into a tie for 10th place with former Denver Bronco Wes Welker breaking his tie with running back Edgerrin James. Austin Collie is Sanders’ next target with 15.
Noting Eighteen: With his 3 touchdown passes last night, Peyton Manning threw his 23rd touchdown pass at Arrowhead stadium. Manning has played 8 games at Arrowhead. Chiefs Quarterback Alex Smith has thrown 23 touchdown passes in 18 career games at Arrowhead. Joe Montana threw 16 in Arrowhead during 13 starts.
As it is well documented Peyton Manning goes up against the team he formerly played for tonight, but after taking a quick look at their depth chart, the only former teammate on the field is Mike Adams, a former Bronco.
Even on the offensive side of the ball the only former teammate is Reggie Wayne.
Then you have kicker, Adam Vinatieri and punter and ammature canal swimmer, Pat Mcafee, are the only other two former teammates Manning will be on the field with since Robert Mathis is on the suspended list.
It’s his former team, but not that many familiar faces are left.
