Manning's Record Night Routs Ravens

Lead in text: 
That was certainly an impressive way to open the NFL season wasn't it? Sending an NFL record 7 touchdowns through the air, Peyton Manning and the Broncos beat the defending champion Baltimore Ravens 49-27. Manning was 27-of-42 for 462 yards for the night.
