Manning-Harrison tie Young-Rice for most TDs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 2, 2005) -- Peyton Manning 's 24-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison early in the fourth quarter against Tennessee tied the duo with Steve Young and Jerry Rice for most TD passes at 85.

Young and Rice combined for 85 touchdown passes between 1987 and 1999 with San Francisco.

Manning and Harrison came into the Tennessee game stuck with 83 TD passes because Manning had not thrown a touchdown pass in the past two games.

But Manning found Harrison on a 7-yard TD just before halftime for No. 84, and he threw a short pass to Harrison on the right sideline. Harrison ran up the sideline for the TD with 13:09 left for No. 85 and a 31-3 lead.

Manning and Harrison set the NFL record for most yards passing between a quarterback and receiver last week against Cleveland.
