The questions surrounding Peyton Manning last year were all about his right arm. This season, they were about his shoulders - as in, are they broad enough to carry the Denver Broncos in Von Miller's absence?

Manning provided an emphatic answer Thursday night, dissecting Baltimore's refurbished defense with a masterpiece of a performance the likes of which hadn't been seen in the NFL since the 1960s.

With their All-Pro linebacker sitting out the first game of his six-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy, Denver's offense more than picked up the slack in the 49-27 rout of the Super Bowl champions.

Manning joined Y.A. Tittle of the New York Giants as the only QBs to throw seven touchdown passes in a game without an interception. Tittle accomplished the feat 51 years ago.
