Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall broke Terrell Owens' NFL record for receptions in a game with 21.

Marshall set the record Sunday on Denver's final offensive play of a 28-16 loss to Indianapolis. He gained 7 yards on a fourth-down play before lateraling to lineman Chris Kuper for 7 more yards.

Marshall finished with 21 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns.

Earlier, he tied the mark on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Orton in the fourth quarter.

Owens caught 20 passes for San Francisco on Dec. 17, 2000.

Marshall also surpassed his team record of 18 catches, set on Sept. 14, 2008 against San Diego.

    Maybe if they would have spread it around a bit, the Broncos could have won. It wasn't a huge mystery for the Colts who would be getting the ball. Marshall's personal stats mean nothing for the team - just another loss.
