• Peyton Manning's single-season passing record set on Sunday is under review. The league's statisticians are looking into a 7-yard pass to Eric Decker late in the first quarter to determine if the pass was a lateral, which would make it a run. Manning threw for 266 yards in the Broncos' 34-14 win over the Raiders, breaking Drew Brees' 2011 record of 5,476 yards by 1 yard.
• The Jaguars plan to let veteran running back Maurice Jones-Drew test free agency. General manager Dave Caldwell said Jones-Drew has “earned the right” to test the market in March. Caldwell added the Jaguars would decide whether to match another team's offer. Jones-Drew has 8,071 yards rushing and 68 touchdowns in eight seasons.
• Chargers linebacker Thomas Keiser was arrested after a fight at a nightclub in San Diego after the team's victory over the Chiefs to earn a spot in the playoffs. San Diego police said Keiser, a North Allegheny graduate and Stanford product, was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery late Sunday.
• Broncos coach John Fox said slot receiver Wes Welker has recovered from his second concussion that kept him out of the final three games. “He has been cleared to play,” Fox said. The Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. 12 in the AFC divisional round.
• The Redskins plan to interview Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott in their search to replace Mike Shanahan, who was fired Monday, NFL.com reported. The Vikings, who fired coach Leslie Frazier on Monday, also have asked permission to interview Bevell.
• The Bengals changed punters for the playoffs, waiving Shawn Powell after only two games and signing former Steeler Zoltan Mesko.
