Wade Phillips: NFL agrees 50th TD was a bobble

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Wade Phillips would like to put an asterisk on Peyton Manning's touchdown record.

The Houston Texans' interim coach said Friday the league agreed with him that Manning's record-tying 50th TD toss Sunday shouldn't have counted because Eric Decker bobbled the ball.

The touchdown still counts, however, as does Manning's 51st TD throw. That one to Julius Thomas minutes later capped Denver's 37-13 win and broke Tom Brady's record of 50 TD passes set in 2007.

Decker said Phillips should just let it go, telling The Associated Press on Friday, "I caught it. This doesn't change anything. It's still a big catch for me and one I'll remember for a while."

Same with Manning, who told Decker after the reception with 6:57 left, "Great catch, man!"
