Davidson's Sports Wrap-Up: Manning Tops Brady

Here's what you missed this weekend in sports.

Here's what you missed this weekend in sports:

A Manning for All Seasons
Peyton Manning broke Tom Brady's single-season touchdown record, throwing his 51st TD in the Denver Broncos' 37-13 victory Sunday over the Houston Texans and earning his team a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Love Can't Keep Us Together
Kevin Love is breathing new life into the Minnesota Timberwolves, but his 45 points and 19 rebounds weren't enough to stop the Los Angeles Clippers, who outlasted the Wolves 120-116 in overtime Sunday.

A Lone Star Move
The Texas Rangers won the offseason with Saturday's seven-year, $130 million signing of outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.

Saving Himself?
The New York Rangers finally won one Sunday after sitting their star goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, for backup Cam Talbot. Is Lundqvist's worst season of his career the result of his desire to stay healthy for Sochi?

Overcoming the Odds
Mission College's women's basketball team beat Hancock College 69-49 on Sunday, and the only reason to care remains the presence of 52-year-old transgender player Gabrielle Ludwig.

Out of Their Hands
In today's atmosphere of micromanaging and overpreparation, it seems the only thing the omnipotent National Football League can't control is who wins and how.

On the Bright Side
Things could have been much worse for the Nashville Predators' rookie defenseman Seth Jones, who took a puck to the face Saturday but is living a life of which most 19-year-olds can only dream.
