When Peyton Manning entered the game against the 49ers on Sunday, he was 3 passing touchdowns short of ending up with an all-time career record in the NFL, surpassing that of 508 set by Brett Favre. It only took under half of the game to break the record.
The first touchdown pass featured Denver Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He got free really fast and caught a simple 3 yard touchdown pass thrown by Manning. Then, the second happened just 6 minutes later as Peyton found Wes Walker free on a simple corner route. Walker managed to beat 2 defenders, hustling the field in order to land a 39 yards touchdown.
The third touchdown, the career setting one was an 8 yard throw that was scored by Demaryius Thomas.
Manning now managed to go over some of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. His touchdown pass record stands strong at 510, with Brett Favre being second at 508 and Dan Marino at 420.
Favre still has a playoff games record that is set at 552. Manning only has 547 but it is expected to see this record going down at the hands of the Broncos quarterback as soon as possible.
