Indianapolis has shoved aside New England for the NFL record for consecutive regular-season wins.

Peyton Manning threw four TD passes Sunday and the Colts' defense held off Denver for a 28-16 victory. It gave the Colts (13-0) their 22nd consecutive regular-season win, one more than the Patriots' streak that ended early last year.

The Colts also clinched the AFC's top playoff seed and broke San Francisco's record for wins in a decade. Indy has 114, the 49ers had 113 in the 1990s.

Denver receiver Brandon Marshall also got in on the act by breaking the single-game record with 21 receptions. He tied it on a 5-yard TD catch with 9:44 left to make it 21-16. He broke the record on the Broncos' final play.

But Manning, who also threw three interceptions, sealed the win with a 1-yard TD pass to Dallas Clark -- his third TD catch of the game -- with 2:25 to go.

    The Broncos did get beat. However, had they not made so many mistakes at such critical moments they would've WON. Manning was NO GOOD n the second half except for the 1 touchdown. on 3 n 1 and 4th n 1's you gotta make those plays. The stats showed that the Broncos BEAT them in almost every category, even the time of posession. Sure they lost,,but i have to say they should feel pretty good. who knows the Broncos may play them again n the playoffs. Besides WHO expected the Broncos to have a record like this with 3 games to go.If they make the playoffs that alone would be way more than anyone expected. Good Luck Broncos. A Broncos fan for 30 plus years.
