Manning picks apart Seattle D, beats Seahawks 34-17

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning led the Colts to four touchdowns on their first five possessions Sunday, including two milestone TD passes in a 34-17 rout of Seattle.

The 4-0 Colts have won 13 consecutive regular-season games, the longest current streak in the league.

Seattle played without quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and left tackle Walter Jones, who are both hurt, and lost its third game in a row.

Manning made this one look easy. He finished 31 of 41 for 353 yards, marking the first time he's had four consecutive 300-yard games in his NFL career. The second TD pass, a 21-yarder to Austin Collie with 3 seconds left in the first half, moved him into a tie with Fran Tarkenton for third on the NFL's career list with 342. Brett Favre, with 469 TDs, and Marino, with 420, are the only players ahead of Manning and Tarkenton.
