Peyton Manning hollering out audibles at him will tell you that the man made them. Manning is known around football circles as one of - if not the best - quarterback to ever line up under center Garrett Bradbury Jersey , and while the debate will rage on for decades as to Manning's place in the annals of football history, there is no one who will ever doubt his ability to throw touchdown passes (during the regular season, at least).Last Sunday night, Manning broke Brett Favre's touchdown pass record. He took the equivalent of nearly four seasons less that Favre to accomplish the feat, all while playing the last few years with a surgically repaired neck (so imagine how much sooner he would have broken it had he not missed an entire regular season).As good as Manning has been throughout his illustrious career, though, he has plenty of people around him that he needs to thank - specifically the 45 men who've caught at least one touchdown pass from him since he broke into the NFL in 1998. Truth be told, Manning has had an elite supporting cast around him practically his entire professional career, and while he is usually the one moulding good athletes into great ones, there's still some credit that should be given out to some of the elite playmakers he's been teamed up with over the years.While the list of players who've caught a TD pass from the future Hall of Famer is a long one, it has been narrowed down to ten of the finest who've suited up and caught a TD pass from Manning. Based on the way Manning has been playing as of late, there might be room for a few more names down the road if he can keep playing at a high level for a couple more years.*Keep in mind that this list takes into account the entirety of the player's career Noah Fant Jersey , not just his production while playing with Peyton. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes struggled in the first half and dazzled in the second Sunday night.Nobody knows how he might have fared in overtime.The Chiefs’ young All-Pro threw for 295 yards and three touchdowns against New England, almost all of it after the break, only to watch the extra session from the bench. The Patriots won the coin toss and never gave him a chance, scoring on the only possession they needed to escape with a 37-31 victory in the first AFC championship game ever played at Arrowhead Stadium.“I thought if we got the chance we’d score,” said Mahomes, who instead praised the Patriots’ Tom Brady for converting a trio of third-and-10s to give Rex Burkhead a chance to score the winning TD.“He had a great drive,” Mahomes said. “Big moments, guys made big catches for him.”Mahomes had plenty of big moments in his own right.After a dismal first half in which he was 4 of 8 for 65 yards and three sacks, Mahomes caught fire in the third quarter. He needed just four plays to find Travis Kelce for a touchdown that trimmed a 14-0 deficit in half, then kept slinging the ball in what became a back-and-forth fourth quarter.The Patriots scored two touchdowns. The Chiefs managed three.Mahomes was behind it all, shredding a Patriots defense that had played reasonably well down the stretch this season. He hit Damien Williams with a short TD flip to get within 17-14 early in the fourth quarter http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/trysten-hill-jersey-cheap , then found his elusive running back again with a 23-yard completion that gave Kansas City its first lead at 21-17 with 7:45 remaining in the game.“They blitzed about every down, played man coverage, and they were able to get home a little bit on some of their games,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We made a few adjustments at halftime, should have done that earlier — that’s my responsibility. But I’m proud of the way the guys battled back.”But the Patriots kept battling, too.Brady led them the other way, and Sony Michel scored from 10 yards on fourth down, only for the Chiefs’ mop-haired QB to answer with a 38-yard pass to Sammy Watkins that set up Williams’ TD run.Back came the Patriots, who in their eighth consecutive conference championship game showed no sign of nerves. They caught a break when an interception was wiped out by an offside call, and Burkhead’s TD run with 39 seconds left appeared to have given New England a 31-28 victory.Then again, Mahomes long ago proved that 39 seconds can last an eternity.He immediately found running back Spencer Ware for 21 yards, the only meaningful play the backup running back made all game. Then Drew Lock Jersey , Mahomes hit Demarcus Robinson for 39 yards to the Patriots 21 with 16 seconds left, giving the Chiefs — without any timeouts — one shot at the end zone.Mahomes wound up throwing it away, and Harrison Butker’s 39-yard field goal forced overtime.By that point the Patriots knew full well the best way to stop Mahomes was to keep him on the bench. So their confidence no doubt soared when they won the coin toss for overtime, and Brady took advantage of the opportunity by finding Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski on their march downfield.Mahomes could only look on as the Patriots ended his dream season.“They challenged us,” he said. “They came up and played man defense. Not a lot of teams did that this year. The first half we struggled, we couldn’t make much happen. The second half we were up to the challenge, we found ways to win one-on-one matchups.“We gave everything we had,” Mahomes said. “They ended up making more plays at the end.”
