NFL tells Texans that Manning’s 50th TD pass shouldn’t have counted

On Friday, Wade Philips dropped the hammer on Peyton Manning and his touchdown record. Well, not really, but Phillips did say the NFL informed him that Manning’s 20-yard touchdown to Eric Decker shouldn’t have counted. Decker never fully secured the ball after further review by the league.

After being informed of the touchdown that should have never been, Phillips had a humorous response.

“Poor Manning,” Phillips said. “He thought he broke the record.”

“We did get some good news. Actually, it’s bad news for Peyton Manning. … I guess they’re going to have to take that ball that they sent to the Hall of Fame back,” Phillips said jokingly. “I feel bad for Peyton celebrating breaking the record and it really didn’t happen.”

“I guess they still count it, don’t they?”

The score was Manning’s 50th touchdown pass on the season, tying Tom Brady’s record. Manning would later break the mark with a 25-yard strike to Julius Thomas.

These miscalls happen, and it’s fairly certain that, had the play been overturned, Manning would’ve broken the record later in the game or in Week 17 against the Raiders. After all, it’s not like the defense laid down and let him have the record. We’re looking at you, Michael Strahan.
