Record day still a downer for Denver's Manning

DENVER — On his worst day as a pro, Peyton Manning broke one of Brett Favre's NFL records but remained tied for another one.

Manning's early 4-yard pass to RB Ronnie Hillman set the record for passing yards, but the 18-year veteran added only 31 more passing yards and finished the day with 71,871. Favre had 71,838 from 1991-2010.

With Denver's loss, Favre kept his piece of the record for victories by a quarterback with 186, tied with Manning.

More Broncos: S T.J. Ward was ejected for hitting Jeremy Maclin in the head as the Chiefs receiver blocked him.

Edelman out: Patriots WR Julian Edelman broke a bone in his foot during the win against the Giants, NFL Network and Fox Sports reported. His timetable was uncertain.

Concrete covering: Workers at the Rams stadium covered what had been bare concrete on the fringes of the field with a thick rubberized surface for Sunday's game. In the previous two games at the Edward Jones Dome, opposing players slipped on the concrete. On Nov. 1, 49ers RB Reggie Bush injured his left knee; he is out for the season. Browns QB Josh McCown slipped and banged his left shoulder on the padded wall on Oct. 25.

Fan down: Vikings S Antone Exum tackled a fan who ran onto the field before a kickoff in the fourth quarter.

Cardinals: G Mike Iupati was taken off the field in an ambulance after a collision while making a block in the second quarter against the Seahawks. Iupati had feeling in all his extremities, NBC reported.

Dolphins: CB Brent Grimes was a surprise inactive, ending his streak of 40 straight starts. The team then lost starting CB Brice McCain to a knee injury.

Jaguars: Allen Hurns extended his franchise record for consecutive games with a touchdown catch to seven.

Rams: Rookie G Jamon Brown (broken right foot) was carted off late in the fourth and is likely out for the season.

Redskins: Matt Jones, a former Armwood High and Florida standout, caught a 78-yard touchdown pass, the longest TD catch by a Washington running back since Larry Brown's 89-yarder in 1972.

Steelers: Antonio Brown has 27 receptions in his past two games, third most in that span in NFL history.

Number of the day

35 Consecutive quarters with at least one score for the Patriots, a league record, surpassing the mark of 31 held by the 1999-2000 Rams and 2005 Colts. New England has not gone scoreless in a quarter since the first quarter of the opener against Pittsburgh.

  1. Ryan Callahan encouraged by his return


    Captain Steven Stamkos wasn't the only key Lightning player to make a triumphant return Friday night against Nashville.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

  3. Lightning's Steven Stamkos looks close to top form in first game since November

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.

    Wilson Ramos gives thanks after hitting a grand slam during the second inning, putting the Rays up 4-0.

    ST. PETERSBURG — When Hurricane Irma blew through Florida earlier this month, Ww's Odessabeach remained in her comfort zone.
