Peyton Manning, All-Time TD Leader

Peyton Manning set the all-time regular-season passing touchdown mark Sunday, passing Brett Favre. Here is a comprehensive look at the numbers behind his accomplishment.

Average TDs Per Game

Manning, who was the No. 1 overall pick by the Indianapolis Colts in 1998, is one of only two quarterbacks in league history to average more than two touchdown passes per game (minimum 200 touchdowns thrown). For some perspective, it took Favre 302 games to throw his 508 touchdowns. That's 3 1/2 seasons slower than Manning's pace.

Touchdowns by Season

Some quarterbacks peak early and lose steam. Not Peyton Manning. He threw for what looked like would be a career high of 49 touchdowns in 2004. Then last season, he connected on 55 scores, a single-season record.

Touchdowns by City

Manning spent 13 seasons in a Colts uniform, so it's no surprise that more than 200 of his TDs occurred in Indianapolis.

Touchdowns by Distance

Manning has 326 TDs passes of less than 20 yards, more than John Elway had in his career (300).
