Peyton Manning Keeps Record

Published On: Dec 31 2013 10:12:20 PM CST

The NFL says Peyton Manning's single-season record for 5,477 yards passing will stand.
   
Elias Sports Bureau, the league's official statistician, reviewed a 7-yard pass from Manning to wide receiver Eric Decker and determined it will remain a forward pass and not a lateral, which would have made it a 7-yard run.
   
That would have subtracted 7 yards from Manning's total, leaving him with 5,470 yards, six shy of Drew Brees' 2011 record.
   
NFL spokesman Michael Signora said Elias determined "that the fairest resolution is for the ruling of the one-site stats crew to stand."
