Manning, Harrison connect on record TD

INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 17, 2005) -- Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison hooked up for a 6-yard scoring pass with 9:25 left in the fourth quarter against St. Louis, breaking the NFL record for touchdown passes between a quarterback and receiver.

Harrison caught the ball over his right shoulder in the back corner of the end zone, then used the trademark drag of his feet to haul in the 86th TD pass between the two. They were tied with San Francisco's Steve Young and Jerry Rice.

After the play, Manning went over and spoke to Harrison, then uncharacteristically took the ball with him to the sideline as the crowd roared.

It was Manning's second TD pass of the game and ninth of the season. It gave the Colts a 38-20 lead.
