FINAL SCORE: 146.60-91.94

SUMMARY:

Flight Time leaned on the players he had all season: Peyton Manning, Jimmy Graham, and his wide receivers.  Manning racked up 36 points while breaking the NFL single-season passing TD record (while Cam Newton could muster only 11.84 points for Ant), Graham turned in another double-digit performance, and on a day when Calvin Johnson struggled mightily, Pierre Garcon more than picked up the slack, tallying 31.4 points in an 11-catch, 144-yard, 1 TD effort.  Ryan Mathews also continued his late season uprising, racking up 20.9 points, more than Ant’s starting running backs combined.
