The NFL record-keepers (Elias Sports Bureau) are taking another look at Peyton Manning's "Record Breaking" pass.

Per Sports Illustrated...
quote:

Manning threw what was called a seven-yard pass to receiver Eric Decker on 1st-and-5 from the Oakland 49-yard line. However, in the video below, it’s clear that Manning threw the ball backward, which makes it a lateral. With that in mind, Decker should technically be credited with a seven-yard run.

And under those circumstances, Manning didn’t break Drew Brees’ single-season passing yardage record by one yard. He would have 5,470 yards, not 5,477, and Brees would still have the mark with the 5,476 yards he threw for in 2011.

Does the record still belong to Drew Brees or is it Peyton's? What do you think?
