Peyton Manning’s record will STAND; Manning passes Brees for single season passing yards

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning gets to keep his single-season passing record.

Elias Sports Bureau, the NFL’s official statistician, has decided that the “fairest resolution” to a dispute about a 7-yard completion to Eric Decker in Sunday’s win against Oakland was to consider the play as a forward pass, as was initially ruled by the Raiders’ stats crew, and not a lateral, which would be considered a rush for Decker.

“The determination of Elias is that the fairest resolution is for the ruling of the on-site stats crew to stand,” NFL spokesman Michael Signora said in an email to USA TODAY Sports according to their site.

This is great news for Peyton Manning who has been unstoppable this season.
