Manning joins exclusive club in win over Steelers

From Comcast SportsNet

DENVER (AP) -- Denver quarterback Peyton Manning has become the third player in NFL history to throw 400 career touchdown passes.

Peyton joined Dan Marino and Brett Favre in the select group when he connected with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas for 71 yards early in third quarter to give Denver a 14-13 lead.

Favre has 508 career TD passes and Marino has 420.

Manning is the fastest to accomplish the feat. He reached the milestone in his 209th game and first with the Broncos. Marino reached 400 in his 227th game and Favre did it in his 228th game.

Manning, who signed as a free agent with Denver in March, spent his first 14 seasons with Indianapolis.

Weather report: A cooler day for heated rivals

Things are always heated whenever the Giants and Redskins meet on the field. Everything, that is, except for the weather.

Location: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J.

Kickoff time: 1:00 p.m.

The season changed officially to fall over the past week and it will feel like it in New Jersey where the Redskins will hope to earn their first win of the season. According to weather.com, temperatures will reach only the upper sixties for the game, maybe hitting the 70-degree mark at game's end.

While the temperature may be a little down, the good news is that the teams will have a beautiful day to play. There is nothing but sun in the forecast.

Whatever happens Sunday, weather will not be a factor.

Quotes to get you ready for Ravens at Jaguars

Quotes to get you ready for Ravens at Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE – As you wait for Ravens at Jaguars to kickoff (1 p.m.), here are five Ravens quotes from the week to get you ready:

QB Joe Flacco, on starting 2-0:

“All the wins count the same. It doesn’t matter when you get them. You keep stacking them. It is definitely a good feeling, but it is still early in the year. We have to go out there and prove it for 14 more weeks, and then so on.”

DT Timmy Jernigan, who had two sack, eight tackles, and five quarterback hits through the first two games:

“I feel good about where I am at. But I really feel like my coaches are doing a great job by not letting my head get blown up. Not even just them, I am not letting that happen. I’m staying humble. I know that my first two years were…I wouldn’t say that they were a struggle, but they could have been better. I am embracing it, and I am trying to make up for it.”  

Coach John Harbaugh, on wide receiver Mike Wallace having three touchdowns through two weeks:

“Mike has been everything we expected and hoped for. He’s a better player than he was yesterday and a month ago when he first got here.”

 CB Jimmy Smith, on the Jaguars being 0-2:

“It’s the NFL, you don’t take anybody lightly. Obviously, in the first 15 minutes of that last game (at Cleveland), we saw what happened. It really doesn’t matter what the record is. It’s really any given Sunday. We know the rule.”

Defensive coordinator Dean Pees, on what he saw watching the Jaguars on tape:

“These guys can take the top of the defense really fast. They have great speed. They’re good route runners. The quarterback (Blake Bortles) has a strong arm…We have our hands full. They are a really talented, talented football team who has just struggled to put it together. Let’s hope they struggle one more week.”
