Peyton Manning broke the previous touchdown passing record of 508, set by Brett Favre, when he threw four touchdowns on Sunday night in his 246th career NFL game. Manning's total was brought up to 510. His 509 career touchdown passes were to 45 different players over his career with both the Broncos and Colts. He also broke the record in 56 games fewer than Favre. He now stands 125 scoring passes ahead of the next active quarterback, Drew Brees.

 - Manning has thrown multiple touchdown passes in all six games to start the year, only the 14th time a player has accomplished that.
 - Manning has 156 career games with multiple touchdown passes, second to only Brett Favre (159) in NFL history.
 - Manning has thrown at least one touchdown in 45 consecutive games, marking the fourth longest streak in NFL history. The record is 54 by Brees. 

After becoming the third tight end with 10,000 receiving yards, Witten climbed into the No. 2 spot all-time for career receiving yards by a tight end to pass Shannon Sharpe. He is now 40th among all-time receivers and second among tight end in the NFL for receiving yards with 10,065 receiving yards. Tony Gonzales leads with 1,325 receptions and 15,127 yards.
