2014 Week 10 vs OAK (31 / 44 / 340 / 5 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Against the rival Oakland Raiders, Peyton Manning and the Broncos got off to a terrible offensive start. On his second pass attempt, Manning overthrew Emmanuel Sanders over the middle of the field, resulting in an interception. On Denver's second drive, the offense stalled out after reaching first-and-goal from the four and failing to score on three straight pass plays. On Denver's third drive, Manning and the Broncos again reached the red zone before stalling out and settling for a field goal. On his very next attempt, Manning threw a screen that was tipped and intercepted by defensive end Justin Tuck. It was one of several Manning passes that was tipped at the line of scrimmage through the first half, as Oakland's defensive line did a great job at denying him throwing lanes. After his second interception, Manning and the Broncos offense was forced to punt twice more as Oakland claimed a 10-6 lead. Fortunately for the Broncos, a turnover and a big return gave Manning stellar starting field position on his next two drives, and the entire offense came to life. Peyton Manning threw touchdown passes on each of Denver's next five drives as the Broncos turned a tight 4-point deficit into a massive 31-point lead in just 17 minutes of game time. Manning's first touchdown pass was the result of a tremendous individual effort by running back C.J. Anderson on a screen pass, but his second was a beautiful deep lob to Emmanuel Sanders over the top of a defender just before halftime. Manning threw two short passes that tight end Julius Thomas was able to run into the end zone, and finished with another nice throw between two defenders to Emmanuel Sanders for his fifth passing touchdown of the day. In all, despite a very slow start, Peyton dissected yet another overmatched defense.
2014 Week 11 vs STL (34 / 54 / 389 / 1 / 2 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
With 389 passing yards and 7.2 yards per attempt, Peyton Manning's raw statistics certainly did not look bad against the St. Louis Rams. He threw two interceptions, but both were on great defensive plays when Denver was in desperation mode during the fourth quarter. Still, despite his decent-seeming statistics, Manning played a very poor game against St. Louis, as he was unable to string together any of his intermittent success into sustained production. After having just two passes batted at the line of scrimmage in the first eight games combined, Manning had four passes batted for the second consecutive week. St. Louis' pass rush wasn't dominant, but they were active enough to clearly disrupt Manning's rhythm. Manning's deep accuracy was once again poor, with several balls sailing on him. Manning spent much of the game looking as if he was on the verge of breaking out, but outside of a ruthlessly efficient touchdown drive in the second quarter that saw Manning march 80 yards in just five passes, the promised hot streak never materialized.
2014 Week 12 vs MIA (28 / 35 / 257 / 4 / 0 pass, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)
Coming off of a tough loss to the St. Louis Rams, Peyton Manning and the Broncos were tasked with bouncing back against one of the league's toughest pass defenses in the Miami Dolphins. Fortunately, the offense was up to the task, and an offensive line that has played poorly all season long came together at exactly the right time, allowing just one pressure all game. With extra time to work, Manning was able to pick apart a top-notch Miami secondary, posting his sixth game of the season with 3 or more touchdowns and no interceptions. In addition to his production, Manning came a few feet away from completing a trio of low-percentage deep bombs to Emmanuel Sanders, with two of them traveling 45+ yards through the air. While his deep accuracy was just a hair off, Manning's arm strength has survived just fine to this point of the season.
