Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has found another place in the National Football League record book while leading his team to a 41-9 victory in Detroit over the Lions.

Manning threw six touchdowns Thursday and raised his season total to 41 scoring passes. Manning set an NFL record with at least four touchdown passes in a fifth straight game. The retired Dan Marino had a four-game streak with at least four touchdowns in 1984, when he also set a record 48 scoring passes in a single season.

Two struggling teams played in Dallas, where a late scoring burst gave the host Cowboys a 21-7 win over the Chicago Bears. Julius Jones had two touchdowns for Dallas, including his first career NFL score.
