Broncos’ Peyton Manning breaks Favre’s record

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is one of the greatest players of all time. He’s also now the all-time passing yardage leader.

He picked up the record on his second pass of the game. He hit running back Ronnie Hillman for a four-yard reception.

With this Hillman catch, he broke the all-time record that was previously held by legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre.

He was just three years shy of picking up this record against his former team, the Indianapolis Colts. Instead of doing it at the place Manning is created in building in Lucas Oil Stadium, he does it at his new home.

Manning broke the record midway through his 18th season – and what may be his final season. This includes the 2011 season with the Colts, in which he wasn’t able to play following neck surgery.

Behind Manning and Favre is former Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino. He’s followed by current New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Favre, who also played with the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings, took 20 seasons to break the record. He also made an NFL-record 297 consecutive starts during that time.

The 38-year-old Brady is about 3,000 yards behind Brees. The 36-year-old has 59,005 after the Week 10 contest with the Washington Redskins.

The 209-yards were the lowest he had all season. But if he can play at a high level for several more years, he could be the biggest threat to Manning’s new record.
