It is rare that the Player of the Week comes from the losing team, but the performance the Denver Broncos’ Brandon Marshall put on against the Indianapolis Colts cannot be ignored. He caught an NFL record 21 passes for 200 yards and 2 touchdowns. Despite the fact that the Colts knew it was coming (Kyle Orton only had 29 completions total), they could not stop Marshall. Unfortunately, the Broncos couldn’t stop the Colts either and lost, 28-16.

A great turnaround for Marshall, who was a hot topic in training camp for his bad behavior and apparent desire to be traded. Instead, he now owns the NFL record for receptions in a single game, breaking Terrell Owens’ mark set in 2000 against the Chicago Bears.
