Buffalo’s defense had a solid performance Sunday holding a team that normally scores 35 points per game at home to 11 points below that average. They also brought an end to a consecutive games streak held by Peyton Manning.
Manning had thrown at least one touchdown pass in 51 straight games, but that streak came to an end Sunday as all three Denver touchdowns were scored on the ground by C.J. Anderson.
Manning shrugged off the end of the streak.
“I guess the touchdown streak, the consecutive games? That is something that—I’ve broken a lot of records and set a lot of records due to playing for a long time and playing well at times, but it’s never been something that I’ve been about,” said Manning. “So I don’t need to break or set another record. It was important to get a win. [RB] C.J. [Anderson] did a good job down there in the red zone, getting in there on those runs. Those are hard earned runs down there. It was good to improve our red zone.”
Corey Graham was glad they held Manning without a TD pass, but would’ve preferred they kept the Broncos out of the end zone altogether.
“It’s good,” said Corey Graham of holding Manning without a touchdown pass. “Obviously as a defensive group, especially DBs, you don’t want to give up any passing touchdowns so it’s good for us. But we’ve got to find ways for the defense to hold and stop them from scoring points completely.”
