DENVER - Peyton Mannings receivers played keep-away with his milestone memento and the NFLs new leader in career touchdown passes toyed with the San Francisco 49ers in the Denver Broncos 42-17 victory Sunday night. Mikkel Boedker Jersey .Manning went into the showdown two TDs shy of Brett Favres record of 508, and threw four touchdown passes to reach 510.Its special because of the way our team played, said Manning, who surpassed Favres mark with an 8-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas late in the second quarter.As he went to retrieve the ball, his teammates had some fun.Thomas tossed the ball over Manning to Emmanuel Sanders, who lobbed it to Wes Welker. From there, Welker dished it back to Sanders, who flipped it to Julius Thomas — all of Mannings favourite targets getting into the act.Those guys are all great athletes and my vertical leap isnt what it used to be. I havent played keep-away since I was 8 years old, Manning said. That is something I will always remember.The Broncos had actually talked about doing something like that but Manning said he was surprised his teammates went through with it.He shouldnt have been, Demaryius Thomas said, revealing that Manning actually had them practice it Friday.Its easy. You did that when you were kids, Thomas said. Its like keep the ball away from the guy in the middle.Manning said he just didnt think theyd go through with it.Im a little bit hurt by it, the fact theyre kind of picking on me, Manning feigned. Ive lost my vertical leap. Its not there anymore. My side-to-side agility is not quite as quick. So, it hurt me.Then again, Manning said he deserved to get picked on based on my non-graceful play when I tripped on the play before. So, it is probably fitting. That was pretty funny. Ill remember a lot of things about tonight, but Ill definitely remember that part of it and the fact they had the guts to go ahead and go through with it.Manning finally got the ball along with congratulations from his teammates and coaches. The souvenir wont end up on Mannings mantle, however — the Pro Football Hall of Fame has a nice spot all ready for it.After the shenanigans, a series of football dignitaries offered their kudos on the giant scoreboard, including GM John Elway, Dan Marino, Y.A. Tittle, Sonny Jurgensen, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and of course, Favre.I want to say congratulations for breaking the touchdown record, Favre said. Im not surprised. Youve been a wonderful player and Ive enjoyed watching you play. Ive enjoyed competing against you. I wish you great success for the rest of the season and the rest of your career.Manning added a 40-yard TD throw to Demaryius Thomas after Aqib Talibs interception in the third quarter that made it 28-10, and then Demaryius Thomas set up another score with a 49-yard catch.This time, running back Ronnie Hillman darted through the line for a career-long 37-yard run that made it 35-10. He added a 1-yarder as the Broncos (5-1) discovered a ground game to go with Mannings passing prowess.Manning completed 22 of 26 passes for 318 yards with no interceptions to go with his four TD throws before taking the fourth quarter off.Im not sure what their coaches do, 49ers safety Eric Reid said. They probably dont have to do much. When hes out there on the field, he recognizes the defence and makes audibles, he does it all. Youre playing against a co-ordinator when hes out there. Hes definitely one of the best, if not the best, ever.Demaryius Thomas caught eight of Mannings throws for 171 yards, giving him an eye-popping 27 catches for 521 yards receiving and five TDs over the last three games.The 49ers (4-3) did very little right in seeing their three-game winning streak snapped. Their only real highlight was Colin Kaepernicks 4-yard TD pass to Stevie Johnson with 11 seconds left in the half brought the 49ers to 21-10.Kaepernick was sacked six times — DeMarcus Ware had three and Von Miller two.It was such a thorough thrashing that coach John Fox was able to rest his regulars late in the game, which could prove crucial with the San Diego Chargers coming to town Thursday night.Manning threw a 3-yard TD pass to Sanders on Denvers first drive and tied the record when Welker took a pass over the middle for 39 yards. Sanders score was his first in Denver, and he became the 47th player to catch a TD pass from Manning.Manning reached the milestone in his 246th regular-season game. Favre needed 302.I think Brett has always known he is one of my favourite players. He played the position with so much passion, so much toughness and great production as a quarterback, Manning said.Among those offering their congratulations on the scoreboard was Fran Tarkenton, who said, Well, Peyton, its official. Your ducks have crossed the end zone more than anybody elses. But really, congratulations. Nobody has ever played the quarterback position better than you have.Notes: 49ers C Daniel Kilgore apparently broke his left ankle in the third quarter. ... The Broncos lost LB Steven Johnson (ankle) and CB Omar Bolden (possible concussion).___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.or g and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Justin Braun Jersey . The same for both the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers. David Schlemko Jersey . The Yankees made the moves before Tuesdays game against Baltimore. Robertson was listed retroactive to Monday. Robertson posted two saves in three games as the replacement for retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before getting hurt.New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Knicks announced they signed guard Langston Galloway to a second 10-day contract. Galloway, 23, averaged 9.8 points, three assists and 1.3 steals in four games during his first 10-day contract. In his second game, which was his Madison Square Garden debut, he scored 19 and made 3-of-4 3-pointt shots. Joel Ward Sharks Jersey.

New York is currently mired in a franchise-worst 16-game losing streak, leaving them in last in the Eastern Conference with a 5-36 record.
