Houston (CBS Houston) - The Broncos never trailed Sunday as Peyton Manning broke the single season touchdown record. The Texans we handed their 13th straight loss 37-13.

The game got off to a slow start with a quick three-and-out by the Texans. Denver then responded with a 78-yard field goal drive to take a three-point lead.

The Texans got on the board late in the first quarter with a 45-yard field goal from Randy Bullock. But the Broncos pulled ahead for good with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas.

Despite seven first half penalties the Broncos took a 16-6 lead into halftime. Peyton Manning led the way with 296 first-half passing yards.

“The guy is a great quarterback obviously,” Wade Phillips said. “They came out throwing.”

After the break the Texans were able to close the gap to three, 16-13, with a Matt Schaub touchdown pass to Keshawn Martin. Both teams traded unsuccessful drives before Mike Adams picked off  Schaub, setting up an Erick Decker touchdown catch.

“We had the turnover and they got the score. It just took the life out of us.” Safety D.J. Swearinger said.

Manning would hit Decker again in the fourth quarter for his third touchdown of the game and 50th of the season, tying Tom Brady’s single season record. He would break Brady’s record later in the fourth with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Julius Thomas.

Manning finished 32-51 with 400 yards and four touchdowns.  Schaub went 18-37 for 176 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

“It’s never fun to be on the opposite end of a record breaking performance,” J.J. Watt said. “The guy is a heck of a football player and you give credit where credit is due. There’s a reason the (Manning) should be the MVP this year.
