One week, it's interceptions. The next week, it's incompletions.

In a 31-25 loss to Houston, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw 26 incompletions, the highest number of misconnections he's made in a single game over his 15-year career.

The Associated Press reviewed all 26 incompletions. Seven were overthrown, four were underthrown, four were dropped by Broncos receivers and four were dropped by Houston defenders. Three of the incompletions were grounded to stop the clock or avoid a sack, two were deflected by defenders in coverage and one was batted down at the line.

The other one was an on-target pass to receiver Demaryius Thomas, who couldn't get his second foot down in the back of the end zone.

The Broncos fell to 1-2. They play the Raiders next Sunday.
