It’s hard to decide what meme makers focused on more: Peyton Manning breaking the passing touchdowns record, or the Denver Broncos beating the San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick.
It was probably Manning who took the headlines, reaching 510 career touchdown passes, surpassing Brett Favre at 508, breaking yet another record, and not looking like someone who is slowing down any time soon.
Meanwhile, the 49ers find themselves with a 4-3 record in a division that’s developing a bit differently than most expected it to. Kaepernick wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great, or good enough. In short, the 49ers need more from him against the upper echelon of teams in the NFL.
Manning has just one Super Bowl ring which is something “haters” will always use against him. But there’s so much more than a good quarterback to a Super Bowl winning team. Manning is doing incredible things at 38 after neck surgeries. The numbers, at least in the regular season, are his. And the title of the best quarterback ever? That might be his also.
