Peyton Manning passed the previous record holder Brett Favre.  Manning also has an opportunity to pass Favre in another category as well, all-time regular-season wins at 186.  Manning will have 187 regular season wins with his next victory.

History Now: Peyton Manning Sets A New Record For Career Touchdown Passes

On October 19, 2014 the Denver Broncos future Hall Of Fame QB Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre’s previous NFL All-Time Career Touchdown record in Denver, CO. Favre’s previous record had been 508 TD’s. Manning came into the game against the San Francisco 49ers with 506 career TD’s.

Peyton Manning began the game with an early score in the 1st quarter when he completed a 3-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders. He then tied Brett Favre’s record with a 39-yard TD pass to Wes Welker late in the 1st quarter of the game. Manning’s third TD of the game came right before half time, a 8-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas. With that touchdown Manning had passed Favre with TD 509. He would throw one more TD pass to Thomas for good measure in the third quarter. When Manning was taken out of the game in the third quarter he had 510 career touchdowns. Manning broke Favre’s record in 57 fewer games played.

Peyton Manning’s feat is an incredible show of strength and determination. In 2011 Manning had season ending neck surgery. Many people believed he would never be the same if he was even able to return. Manning would return in 2012 with the Denver Broncos and has proven he is one of the best quarterbacks of his era. The 38 year old Manning is in fine form and does not appear to be slowing down any time soon.
