Denver reached 30 points for the 10th time this season, yet another benchmark of success for Manning, a quarterback who insists age and injury have turned him into someone much different than what he once was.
‘‘The ramifications of the (injury) is part of it, and part of it is probably being 36, and part of it is probably playing with a new team,’’ he said. ‘‘You can probably add them all together. I'm just trying to kind of be the best I can be in this role.’’
Notes: With his 53 yards, Richardson has 950, surpassing Jim Brown for the franchise rookie record. ... Denver’s 10-game win streak matches the second longest in franchise history, in 1984, when John Elway was quarterback. ... Manning passed Elway and Jake Plummer for second most yards passing in a season for the Broncos. Manning needs 172 to break Jay Cutler’s record.
