On Sunday, Peyton Manning did something no one has ever done: He threw for more passing yards in a single season than any quarterback before him. And he broke the record by the slimmest of margins — one yard.

But that could all be taken away as the statisticians are now reviewing one play in particular that could erase the record.

It all hinges on a pass from Manning to receiver Eric Decker in the closing minutes of the first quarter of the game against Oakland. On that play, Manning threw a quick pass out to Decker in the left flat. It went for seven yards. But now the question is whether the ball was actually thrown backwards and not completed forwards. That tiny distinction would turn the completion into technically a lateral and a run.



If they go back now, review the play, and strip Manning of his passing record, then they also need to strip the Chargers of their win over the Chiefs.

Yeah, still a little bitter.
