Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and the Most Passing Touchdowns in NFL History

Peyton Manning is on His Way to the All-Time Passing Touchdowns Record

Peyton Manning is on His Way to the All-Time Passing Touchdowns Record

Surprised in all these posts, we’ve never covered quarterbacks with the most career passing touchdowns – and so current a topic these past few years with the utter explosion in the passing game, passing yards and passing points.

And the hunt for the record.

Peyton Manning is going to break it. Add Tom Brady and Drew Brees and you’ve got three of the top six all time.

As of the end of Week 7, Manning is just 47 behind the all-time leader, Brett Favre – the only QB who connected on over 500 touchdowns (508 to be exact).

How big is that record? Well only two other QBs have breached the 400 TD mark – Manning and the great Dan Marino.

And only four others have breached the 300 TD mark – actives Brady and Brees, Fran Tarkenton and John Elway. Brady and Brees will almost certainly break 400, too.

All the rest of the bests are in the 200’s.
