Broncos clinch playoff berth with rout of Titans

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Peyton Manning continued his run of success with 397 yards and four touchdown passes as the Denver Broncos ripped off 24 consecutive points en route to a convincing 51-28 decision over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Manning set a single-game club record with 39 completions on a personal-record 59 attempts for the Broncos (11-2), who maintained their one-game edge over the Chiefs in the AFC West as well as a one-game lead over New England for the top spot in the conference with their fifth win in six games.

Matt Prater connected on all three of his field-goal attempts, and set a new NFL record when he booted a 64-yard try on the final play of the first half.

Eric Decker led a stacked receiving corps with 117 yards and a score on eight catches, while Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas added a TD grab apiece in the rout.

Wes Welker did not return after halftime, diagnosed with a concussion, but posted 61 yards and a touchdown on five catches before departing.

Knowshon Moreno led the rushing attack thanks to 78 yards and one end-zone foray on 14 carries.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was held to 172 yards on 13-of-24 passing with a touchdown and interception for the Titans (5-8), who have dropped four of their last five to jeopardize their playoff hopes.

Justin Hunter notched 114 yards and a score on four receptions, Shonn Greene crossed the goal line twice on rushes and Chris Johnson was held to 46 yards and one TD on 12 carries in defeat.
